With winter fast approaching, the city of Columbia wants to make sure its residents are ready for the first snow. The city of Columbia will host its first Snow Palooza this Thursday. The event is aimed at educating the public about how the city handles snow and ice storms and attendees will have a chance to look at snow-fighting equipment and ask city staff any questions they have about Columbia’s policy or procedures.
