The Cortland County AG/Planning/Environmental Committee met in person yesterday for the first time in months, since the COVID-19 pandemic forced all meetings to go virtual back in mid-March.
During yesterday’s meeting, the committee authorized an agreement to accept federal funding from the CARES Act program to provide support for the fiscal impacts of COVID-19.
There was also a renewal of advertising services on county buses for the Seven Valley Health Coalition.
Meanwhile, David Rutherford from the Cornell Cooperative Extension was also in attendance and spoke about the types of support agricultural markets are in need of during the current health crisis.
One thing that is being done is the distribution of free hand sanitizer to the agriculture community, which Rutherford said is still being done on a continual basis.
If you are a farmer or work in the agricultural field, feel free to reach out to the Cornell Cooperative Extension office at (607)391-2660 for more information on free hand sanitizer for agriculture workers.
