Mayor Pamela Hoots gave the 'State of the City' address at the March, 2023 meeting of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce Tuesday.

Details of her report which she gave to all those attending is available from City Hall on request by calling 270-384-2501.
The Mayor was introduced by Ellen Zornes, Executive Director of the Chamber, who shared with the group, "Pam Hoots is serving her second consecutive term as Mayor of Columbia along with an earlier term as Mayor. She holds degrees in Communications and Business Administration.

"Then, back in the Shire, Columbia, she can be seen hopping around the town she loves in a Easter Bunny costume, or bringing flowers to brighten someone's day or attending a Board meeting (she is on several) or meeting with a potential business owner who, due to her outreach, is locating in Columbia, or talking to citizens asking them to serve on a committee for the betterment of Columbia, or coming up with ideas to make Columbia shine at Christmas or reading books to school kids, or eating BBQ at a Columbia family cookout or opening another community park or writing grants for the city or ... and the list goes on and on.
"And she ends each long day, riding around town with her sidekick, Jakky."
