Cortland Mayor, Deirdre Petrosky has announced the launch of the city's Business Attraction Package program.

The program's goal is to attract and retain small businesses in the city's limits. It combines discounts from a variety of other Valley businesses to help offset the cost of creating or maintaining a small business.

Those businesses offering discounts have become partners of the program through December of 2024. All Cortland-based businesses may take advantage of the program by calling any partner directly.

The program will be available until the end of 2024 and includes promotional and marketing material, website design and management and faculty maintenance services, which will assist in decreasing large overhead costs for operating small businesses.
