South Central Ozark Council of Governments - Local Government Sector

17% of survey complete.

As your sector representative indicated, the South Central Ozark Council of Governments (SCOCOG) is working with the Missouri MoBroadbandNow project, which is part of a five year initiative launched by Governor Nixon in 2009 to facilitate broadband expansion throughout Missouri.

MoBroadbandNow seeks to expand broadband accessibility and adoption in our area to empower local governments to handle online routine requests faster, with fewer resources and fewer costs; use online transmission of data to shorten government response time; enable access from anywhere to on-line public government meetings; deliver services to citizens quickly and efficiently online; provide staff access to real-time data in order to provide more efficient and cost effective government services; build cyber security protection and defenses into networks offered to business and individuals; and much more.

To be successful, the MoBroadbandNow project needs to have a fuller understanding of how the local government sector in our region would like to use broadband, and the barriers and challenges that you face in integrating it into your community.

In order to do that, we are engaging in an effort to identify broadband needs at the local level. Specifically, in this survey, we want to find out the attitudes, opinions, needs and interests of stakeholders in local government. The thoughts of this group will be shared with the SCOCOG Regional Technology Planning Team (RTPT) which is tasked with considering ways, and crafting a strategic plan, to create broadband opportunities and address the needs of our region.
