JACKSBORO, TN (SPECIAL TO WLAF) – The County Commission is pleased to announce the launch of Project WIN (Water Internet Needs). It’s an initiative aimed at collecting and maintaining data on Water and Internet needs throughout Campbell County. Through Project WIN, the County Commission will be able to collect and maintain information that is vital when applying for grants and communicating needs to water and internet providers.

Currently, the County Commission is collecting information from Campbell Countians who lack and desire access to either Potable Water (commonly known as city water) or Broadband Internet. Submission of information to the County Commission does not guarantee that the need will be met, but it does enable the County Commission to better communicate the need to providers.

“Access to water and internet is of critical importance to the citizens of Campbell County, and through Project WIN, the County Commission will be better equipped to identify and communicate needs regularly to Utility Districts and internet providers,” said 1st District County Commissioner and Chairman of the Infrastructure Committee Zachary Marlow. Marlow developed and proposed Project WIN to the Infrastructure Committee and County Commission.

“Over the last four years, the County Commission has made great strides in improving access to water and internet,” said 4th District County Commissioner and Chairman of the Commission Johnny Bruce. Bruce added that “though Project WIN does not guarantee an individual will receive access to water or internet, Project WIN does improve the ability of the County Commission to communicate with providers, which, in turn, should expedite the expansion of water and internet throughout Campbell County”

There are multiple ways that citizens can submit their Water and Internet Needs to the County Commission to be included with Project WIN Data:
