Bowling Green expanding city's free wireless

The city of Bowling Green is planning to extend free wireless service to many of its public buildings this summer. City leaders say that will allow improved access to the Internet for business representatives who visit the city.

City chief information officer Lynn Hartley told the Daily News ( ) that the new system is expected to be ready in August. 

The project will cost the city about $30,927. The Bowling Green City Commission approved a bid from Pomeroy of Louisville for the needed equipment last week.

Hartley says public Internet access will be offered at buildings with large conference or training rooms or where there are areas generally open to the public. They include City Hall, the Kummer/Little Recreation Center and the Parker-Bennett Recreation Center.
