Richland Center Ranked #1 Safest Small Towns in the US

“Good news! Richland Center ranked #1 in the LendEDU Top 250 Safest Small Towns in the United States Report. In short, Richland Center is one of the safest towns in the United States according to the FBI.

We determined this ranking by using FBI crime statistic data. The FBI data was used to calculate our ranking metric: the number of violent crimes per 1,000 residents.

Safety is an extremely important part of living in a home. It is clear that Richland Center has created an environment for families to feel safe. Needless to say, these results are important, and I’m sure the community will be excited to see the ranking.” Tom Flynn LENDEDU

Wisconsin PSC Broadband Survey

The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) is conducting a statewide survey to gather information about residential Internet access throughout the state.  The survey gives families in your area the opportunity to tell service providers if they need better or more affordable Internet access – or don’t have access at all.

The survey, located at https://www.research.net/r/WI_PSC_broadband_survey, takes about 5 minutes to complete.

Households that do not have home access to the Internet can take the survey by phone (877-360-2973). It is especially important for these households to take the survey, so that PSCW and Internet providers know the location of all households that do not have high-quality, affordable Internet access.

Please take advantage of this opportunity for your families’ voices to be heard regarding broadband!

Thanks,
Wisconsin Broadband Office
