The Raytown Board of Aldermen has given formal approval to a deal with Google Inc. to bring its ultra-high speed Internet service to the community.

A tentative deal to open Raytown to construction of a Google Fiber network and fiber optic connections to homes there was made early this month. The aldermen approved an agreement with the company Tuesday night.

The company said on its blog Wednesday that “it will be a while before we can hook up Raytown residents — we need to plan and build our network there first.”
