In July, our coalition was invited by Mayor Narkewicz to help refine a RFP (Request for Proposal) to study the viability of a municipal network for the city. This was shortly after the City Council approved funding for this first study, which is to survey the community.
We traded a few emails with Antonio Pagan, Chief Information Officer for Northampton since then, and provided him with some research of RFPs written by other cities. Antonio thanked us for what we sent him.
However, we haven’t heard back from him in several months. We hope he is busy working on the RFP and that no news is good news. Fingers crossed. We’re looking forward to the process moving forward quickly and hope it starts soon.
