WHEREAS:

ORDERED:

That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to appoint and convene a Small Business Recovery Advisory Committee, a citywide group of business leaders culled from the 11 commercial districts, each of the neighborhood business associations, a business-owner from those neighborhoods that do not have a formal neighborhood business association, the Chamber of Commerce, Cambridge Local 1st, and any other relevant individuals, and that shall be charged with creating a pathway and recommendations on how to re-open businesses, and with disseminating information on how to access relief from the state and federal government and other critical information to the local business community; and be it further

 

 

ORDERED:

That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to report back to the City Council on this matter in a timely manner.
