Fiber-optics project sought in Southern Tier

ELLICOTTVILLE -- Cattaraugus County Industrial Development Agency Executive Director Corey Wiktor said the agency is seeking support from businesses and individuals for a proposed fiber-optics route to the Internet for Southern Tier businesses and communities.

The project will provide more reliable technology connections for many businesses in Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties. Businesses and homeowners would have access to the connection.
