Business Support Response & Recovery Team Subcommittee
- The ADCO Business and Industry Emergency Response Council (ERC) will gain an understanding of the challenges facing Adams County industries, businesses and employees as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and to identify potential policy and program solutions that can be implemented to assist in the immediate response efforts and eventual recovery. The ERC will also become a senior conduit to share business best-practices throughout the Adams County business community. Through this council, Commissioners are working to learn about what industries and employees are going through and how they are responding to this crisis in order to better understand what policies and programs can best serve the needs of the Adams County business community now and into the COVID-19 recovery.
