PawneeNet hooks up area towns

Information about several smaller Weld County towns soon will be available to the world via the Internet.

PawneeNet, an Eaton-based provider of Internet services, is gathering information to assemble World Wide Web pages for towns such as LaSalle,
Evans, Kersey, Gilcrest, Platteville, Nunn, Ault, Eaton, Grover, Pierce, Windsor and others.

“Greeley has three competing Internet providers,´ said Jeff Rigg, who runs PawneeNet with his brother John. “But nobody is really looking at the
smaller towns.”

Initially, the brothers hoped the towns would be able to pay for their own web pages, but most didn’t have a budget for such a project. The Riggs then
decided to move ahead with the project on a volunteer basis.

“If I want people in this area to subscribe to my provider service, I should do something in turn for the community,” Rigg said.

The pages will sport town logos, historical information, plans for the future, maps and information on schools.

PawneeNet also is working to get local schools in the smaller Weld County towns hooked up to the Internet so it will be available to students.

Additionally, a new full-service Internet company has opened in Fort Collins.

qm2.com inc. is introducing the Fort Collins City Network, which is intended to promote businesses by designing and placing World Wide Web
pages.

The network will provide a listing of all Fort Collins-based businesses, nonprofit groups, community activities, city services and tourism information.

The company also is offering products such as R.E.A.L.System, a comprehensive Internet-based real estate listing service.

PawneeNet can be reached at (970) 454-3048. qm2.com inc.’s phone number is (970) 493-6134.
