Randolph County has experienced a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases recently, and it is important to emphasize safety precautions for your employees and citizens. If there is anything your business or Municipality needs as you deal with COVID-19, please let me know".

PPP Compliance Webinar - organized by the
Randolph County EDC
May 27 - 2PM

Many of you have benefited from PPP funding, allowing you to keep your employees on the payroll during these uncertain times. Since the goal for most is qualifying for loan forgiveness, the EDC will be hosting a PPP compliance Webinar on May 27 from 2-3PM.
Space is limited to 100 participants, so registration is required.
Please register by emailing Kevin Franklin at the EDC.
