The City of Lawrenceburg Gets Smart, Starts with Free Public Wifi
The foundation of a smart region continues to take shape as leaders from Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana take strides to optimize efforts leveraging available resources against addressable opportunities to create better outcomes for residents, businesses, and institutions alike.
