e-Vermont initiatives in West Rutland were spearheaded by Town Manager Mary Ann Goulette and a team from the West Rutland School, West Rutland Public Library, town government, and local businesses. In one short year, this team delivered:
- A public access Wi-Fi zone stretching down Main and Marble Streets where residents and visitors can freely access the Internet from their laptops and handheld devices;
- Fifty-three netbook packages and training for the West Rutland School to ensure that every student in grades 5 and 6 receives a 21st century education;
- A duplex scanner to create digital land records for back-up preservation and public access – Town Hall now has a public station where citizens access the index and records;
- Read about many other accomplishments in the West Rutland Re-cap (pdf).
