FOCUS Broadband awards a Connect Grant to the Town of Leland for the installation of WiFi and enchanced security at Founders Park.

FOCUS Broadband recently awarded the Town of Leland with a $10,000 Connect Grant to assist with installing enhanced WiFi and security at Founders Park.

Representatives from the Town of Leland applied for the grant as part of the Founders Park Improvement Project. The project will bring new amenities to the park, including an amphitheater, splashpad, a Veterans Memorial and an updated playground. With the grant funding, the Town of Leland plans to expand WiFi access throughout the park, offering internet access to visitors and vendors who may attend local events and need internet access for commercial sales.

The grant will also help in installing security cameras at Founders Park.

“We are excited to be awarded this grant,” says Town of Leland Mayor Brenda Bozeman, “We’ve had a great partnership with FOCUS Broadband for many years and being able to provide enhanced internet access and security at the park presents a multitude of opportunities for Leland residents and visitors.”
