DISCUSSION ITEMS


Before moving into discussion items, Chair Burtner introduced newly appointed member Madusha Palliyage, and asked that she provide the group with a brief description of her experience, and asked each member present to introduce themselves and provide a recap of their backgrounds. 

 

Chair Burtner provided a brief overview of the TWG, its direction from Council, and its accomplishments to date to new member Palliyage.

 

Item 1.      Creation of an educational/municipal (institutional) fiber/wireless network, FullertonNet

                       

Cost Analysis of I-Net and Letter of Intent

Chair Burtner asked Mr. Anderson the status of the Fullerton School District's Letter of Intent.  Mr. Anderson indicated that he and Mr. McCune would be presenting the proposed Letter of Intent to the school district at their next meeting scheduled for April 24.   Mr. Anderson stated that the school district is certainly interested and willing to move ahead in improving the digital infrastructure, but the $500,000 price tag is significant, and the district would need to determine if the cost can be amortized over some period of time or if an income stream can be generated to pay for it.  In addition, the district would be interested in reviewing a cost-benefit analysis before making any kind of financial commitment.

 

Chair Burtner noted that he had not heard from TWG Member Samantello regarding the status of the Letter of Intent for Fullerton Joint Union High School District. 

 

Chair Burtner mentioned that he had read in the morning paper that the state would be providing the school district with $75 per student for technology purposes.  Mr. Anderson confirmed the funding and indicated the one-time money would be used to hire a technician for a two-year period to deal with the repairs needed to keep the district's equipment working.

 

Chair Burtner pointed out that the TWG was in a period of downtime waiting for responses from the school districts and direction from city staff before moving ahead.  He stated he had brought a FlexNAP System Installation video provided by Corning to show following adjournment of this meeting to those interested TWG members.

 

Item 2.      Citywide wireless network

 

W2i Conference Report

At the March 8 TWG meeting, Chair Burtner had presented to the TWG members a draft report of the highlights of the W2i conference that he and Helen Hall had attended in Tempe, Arizona, February 13-14, 2007.  Chair Burtner presented the committee members with a final draft of the report, which included additional information pertaining to a few convention highlights.
