SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Salisbury's broadband utility is taking its first steps toward expansion into parts of the county outside of the city.
The Rowan County Commission gave its approval this week for Fibrant to expand into two business parks, including the Summit Corporate Center and Chamandy Drive, in order to serve companies such as Agility Fuel Systems and Gildan Yarns.
"In my opinion, this is a big deal for economic development for Rowan County," Fibrant Director Kent Winrich said.
The expansion does not mean that county residents will be able to access Fibrant. In these cases the expansion is specifically for venues that would generate economic development.
