The town Municipal Light Plant (MPL) is pleased to announce that as of March 20, 2017, all 4 towns (Monterey, New Marlborough, Sandisfield, and Tolland) involved in the multi-town procurement for broadband Internet service have made the decision to begin a negotiation process with Frontier Communications. On March 8, 2017, the Sandisfield Town Administrator, assigned to be the Procurement Officer for this 4-town joint procurement, announced that by unanimous vote the selection committee assigned to the procurement had ranked the proposal submitted by Frontier Communications the most responsive and advantageous. Following this announcement the MLP Board for each town independently voted to accept the committee’s recommendation. The next step in the procurement process is a contract negotiation period, to be completed per the terms of the Request For Proposal (RFP).

This announcement will be updated as soon as updated information becomes available.
