Several public and private organizations are teaming up to address the county’s broadband Internet situation.

Knox county leaders along with the Knox County Development Corporation (KCDC) announced the reorganization of the Rural Broadband Task Force.

The task force will focus on evaluating current broadband coverage throughout the county and developing solutions for quicker buildout of the infrastructure.

According to the KCDC, the group is planning a countywide assessment of broadband coverage.

From there, the group will identify state and federal programs to assist, recommend policies and initiatives, and promote a “broadband ready” community.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
