Broadband Is Coming To Newfield

To show interest and support, please go to the Clarity Connect web site.  The more interest that is generated, the sooner things can be up and running.  Please go to:

www.clarityconnect.com, go to the grey box on the left side under  “high speed wireless access” and click on “here”.  Go to/click on box saying “Inquire about service” and fill in the information.

The Newfield town website is clean and healthy.

Just to quell any rumors to the contrary, this site is virus free and all links should be working.  Back in February, I was notified that the site was advertising a payday loan site.  (This was not a “virus”, but simply injected code which sent the user to another website.)   I took the site down immediately, changed all the passwords, reinstalled the software, restored from a backup and got most links working with 24 hours.  More recently, we corrected an issue that resulted in some missing board minutes and agendas from the site.  All should be working 100% now.  –Linda
