Affordable Connectivity Program for Internet
The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more. The benefit provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers. Please see https://www.fcc.gov/acp for more information and how to sign up.
Fire Number Sign Replacement
Fire signs are crucial for emergency personnel to locate them in the case of an emergency. If a resident wants to replace a faded fire sign, they need to obtain an address number application for replacement from the Real Property Lister at the Adams County court house. The house number application is also available on the Adams County website at "house number application". Replacement cost is $40 and will be added to the property tax bill as a special assessment.
