During the fall of 2007 Mayor Roczen headed up a project to establish a village-wide wireless Internet network. This is being done by numerous villages and towns across the country. The system was designed to operate with very low maintenance and overhead cost to the village.
In the spring of 2008 the Internet service was connected. This gave residents the opportunity to subscribe for an Internet connection at a monthly cost substantially lower than other public access. There was also a plan for possible expansion of the network to the residential areas surrounding the village. During the first summer of operation the system experienced some trouble and down time, all of which were worked on and improved throughout the year.
On December 31, 2009 the Village Board of Trustees made the decision to shut the system down, claiming that it was costing the village more money than originally projected.
