Grundy, VA building FTTB system as it relocates entire downtown out of flood zone

Grundy, VA building broadband system as it relocates entire downtown out of flood zone
The City of Grundy, Virginia is relocating its' entire downtown out of a flood plain along the Levisa River to higher ground across the river. As part of the relocation and construction, the City is building in a broadband system from the start. The article in the Bluefield-Princeton Daily Gazette is a bit unclear as to whether this is a wireless network or a fiber network or some combination.

If this is essentially greenfield construction, I don't understand why they're settling for broadband wireless instead of a FTTB (fiber to the business) system.

They have not started laying in the utilities yet at the new site -- perhaps someone at one of the FTTx companies should contact them.
