  • Carriers' carrier wants to boost cell service

    Williston's City Council was left with more questions than answers Tuesday night after a representative from a wireless infrastructure company made his pitch to locate within the city.

    "We're a carriers' carrier," said Chad Caudill of Mobilitie, a company that he said has relationships with Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and ATT.

    Mobilitie, Caudill said, works with those companies to help bring 5G coverage to areas that are lacking strong cell service.

    When the Board of County Commissioners expressed support at their meeting on March 21 for a five-cent per gallon increase on non-diesel fuel, it did not finalize a tax increase.

    Rather, the move, which simply required a signal of support by a consensus of commissioners, put in motion a “fact-finding” process aimed at leading to a final ordinance.

    The action didn’t require a motion or official vote.
