The City of Columbia is hosting two community outreach meetings to give City residents an opportunity to provide their input on how the City of Columbia can best use the grant funds it will receive in response to the October 2015 flood. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has allocated $19.98 million to help the City and its residents recover from the flood. The funds can be used to help resolve unmet needs in the following areas: housing, economic development and infrastructure.
Statement from City Manager Teresa Wilson on 7/11/2016
As the City Manager, there are specific types of behavior and actions that I will not tolerate. Any actions taken to communicate or demonstrate a lack of respect for the lives and safety of others falls into the category of “zero tolerance”. Every man and woman who is employed by the City of Columbia is officially an ambassador for the City. Our employees represent the City of Columbia not only while they are in the workplace, but also while they are engaging with others in the community.
Columbia Fire Chief released the following statement about Firefighter Termination
The Columbia Fire Department has always had a positive reputation of providing professional standard of public service to its citizens, communities and visitors. We are honored and proud to live and participate in the communities we serve. Unfortunately, a member of the Columbia Fire Department has discredited the reputation of the men and women who serve this Department.
