City checking in with local businesses

Following the Governor’s order earlier this week, the City has been working collaboratively with business owners to ensure local businesses stay on top of the latest mandates. Starting Friday, March 27, it will be checking in with businesses and construction sites to see which ones remain open and making sure they are compliant with the current rules. This action not only guarantees that our local businesses follow safe practices, it also provides opportunities to keep vital conversations going about how best we as a community can support them.

A special Business Task Force is also working to create a helpful list of what services businesses are still offering to customers. Stay tuned for more details.

Below are some helpful links gathered from our partners.
