2017 K.I.S.S. PROGRAM
"Keeping Identities of Seniors Safe"
From March 20 to March 31 (see the flyer for the days and times), this program, founded by Holly Tanner, County Clerk, has arranged to have shredding barrels available at Town Hall.
Any documents you are planning to throw away that include your account numbers, passwords, PINs, signatures, Social Security Numbers or your date of birth could potentially be used for identity theft unless they are shredded!
Seniors: take advantage of this program to keep your identity safe.
IMPORTANT: please take the time to add your information to the new Broadband Survey, including a speed test, put together by the Hillsdale Broadband committee that covers the entire county.
Apparently, the Broadband Programs Office maps do not accurately reflect the availability and speeds of Broadband in Columbia County. The purpose of this survey is to assist in correcting those inaccuracies.
