Area extensions to share services

The boards of directors of Otsego County CCE and the Schoharie County Cornell Cooperative Extension recently approved an agreement to share the services of Schoharie County's Executive Director Don Smyers for a seven-month period beginning Sept. 1, according to a media release.

Dan Palm, acting executive director of Otsego County CCE, said he would stay on in a one-day-a-week, part-time role to help Smyers examine three options: leave the two extensions the way they are, share services under one administrator or merge into one organization. Read more here.
