Columbia Comeback Committee Schedules First Meeting

 

 

 

 

 

Hudson, NY – The Columbia County Comeback Committee was formed last week by Columbia County Board of Supervisors to assist Columbia County businesses as the county looks ahead to the re-start of business activities.  The Committee has been tasked to serve as a resource for county businesses to navigate the new normal and develop initiatives to help business owners adapt and respond. Although we can’t be certain when the state will allow for business to be conducted, we can plan to be prepared with Columbia Comeback in a major support role.
