Cadiz-Trigg County Tourist Commission members are looking at expanding Wi-Fi service in downtown Cadiz.

At their Thursday afternoon meeting, Cadiz-Trigg County Tourist Commission Executive Director Bill Stevens said Cadiz City Council member Susan Bryant sent him a Turning Visions Into Reality Request to use restaurant tax revenue to expand Wi-Fi in the city.

There is already limited Wi-Fi in downtown Cadiz, but Stevens talked about perhaps expanding it all the way to West Cadiz Park. Cadiz City Clerk Lisa Rogers talked about why the existing service – supplied for free by Mediacom – is so spotty and practically bordering on non-existent.

“We have a little bit of Wi-Fi, which is free, downtown. It basically runs from the art museum down to … the courthouse,” Rogers said. “It was a free service, it was very minimal when it was put in. It was put in intention for visitors. What happened is some of the businesses are using it for their business, which takes up all of it. And when visitors come, there’s no Wi-Fi.”
