Tacoma City Council has voted to approve agreements with Rainier Connect to operate the municipally owned Click! Network.

The agreements grant Rainier Connect the right to use excess capacity over the Click! Network to provide video and broadband services, while the city retains ownership of the network. Rainier Connect was chosen as a partner through a competitive selection process based on their compliance with policy goals.

The City Council also voted to approve a surplus declaration of anything in the system that is not needed for utility purposes.

This declaration follows the approval from the Tacoma Public Utility Board last month.
