City of Loveland Announces Oct. 4 Broadband Town Hall and City’s First-Ever Telephone Town Hall

Events offer residents opportunity to ask questions about proposed broadband service

 LOVELAND, Colo. - Sept. 6, 2018 – The City of Loveland’s broadband team will host a Town Hall meeting at 6 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 4 at City Council Chambers and will host the City’s first ever Telephone Town Hall in conjunction with the in-person event that evening.

A telephone town hall allows residents to participate via telephone instead of in person. Residents who have registered and those on available call lists will receive a call promptly at 6 p.m. Oct. 4 and can opt-in for the meeting. Prompts available throughout the call allow interested participants to ask questions and hear responses from key speakers. Interested participants can sign up at cityofloveland.org/Broadband.

The Town Hall and Telephone Town Hall will be coordinated together, allowing in-person attendees and telephone attendees to get into the queue to ask questions. City Manager Steve Adams, Brieana Reed-Harmel, City of Loveland senior electrical engineer and broadband project manager, and Loveland Communications Advisory Board vice-chairman Paul Langfield will be available for questions during the town hall. The meeting will also be broadcast live on the City’s Facebook page to be accessible for online participants and viewable on the City’s cable TV channel - Channel 16.

“Bringing broadband to Loveland is an important decision for our community and we want to do everything we can to reach all residents so they have the opportunity to ask questions, and get the information they need,” said Reed-Harmel. “We see the introduction of the Telephone Town Hall and Facebook Live broadcasts as ways to engage more Loveland residents to understand the issues and connect with us.”

  • Community Meetings:
    • Friday, Sept. 7, 8 a.m., Fireside Cafe (coffee provided)
