West Lafayette Moving to a Class 2 City?

UPDATE:  Ordinance 17-14 passed its first reading.  The City has some legal items to clear up prior to the next vote which may happen as soon as July or August.

A tremendously important question is being asked at the June 2nd West Lafayette City Council meeting:

Wireless Internet Access at West Lafayette Farmer’s Market

West Lafayette, Ind. – May 19, 2014 – The City of West Lafayette’s wireless internet has been extended to the public and vendors at the West Lafayette Farmers Market in Cumberland Park.

There are two available wireless SSIDs located at the Market. One is a secure connection for vendors only and one is the same public access the city offers in other areas such as Morton, all fire stations, wastewater, The Village, etc.
The public will connect to the WL-Public SSID. A password is not required and connecting is free of charge. Users will have to accept a basic user agreement, however, after doing so they are free to surf the web, check email, and use social media on the free wireless network.
A different, protected network is available to vendors, especially those accepting credit cards.
