The Hortonville Village Board recently approved creating one of the area’s first Internet exchange safe zones.
Two overhead lights and a surveillance camera cover the area just outside the police department’s squad room windows.
The exchange zone is open 24 hours, and people do not need to ask permission to use the area.
