Cambria Village Board Forms Ad Hoc Committee To Brainstorm Police Protection Options

The Cambria Village Board created a seven-member ad hoc committee that will be responsible for coming up with the pros and cons of different option for police protection. The village did away with their police department last month in an effort to deal with a budget shortfall. In its place the village contracted with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Department for them to patrol the village 65-hours per month. That agreement runs through the end of February.
