St. Louis Park, Minn., city council plans to vote today on whether to declare its WiFi vendor in default of its contract given the fact the city's muni-WiFi project is months behind schedule. The WiFi network, which is supposed to be the nation's first muni-WiFi network using solar power, was supposed to light up by June. But Arinc, the city's infrastructure supplier, is significantly behind, and the city has stopped making any projections on when the network will be up and running. St. Louis Park could very well sue the vendor, which has reportedly cited technical problems as the reason for the delay. Some 4,000 people have pre-registered for the service.
