High Speed Internet Survey
Residents in the Town will be receiving a Survey from Rensselaer County.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT
TO FILL THIS SURVEY OUT
AND RETURN IT ASAP.
According to NYS most of our town if not all of it is has access to high speed Internet.
Please remember there is a difference between having Internet service and having high speed Internet service. Although we are working on this issue ourselves through Hoosick Rising it is still important that the surveys be filled out and returned.
Any survey questions should be directed to Linda VonDerHeide at 518-270-2921 or Lvonderheide@rensco.com
