Small Business Owners Conference Call with Mayor Kelly Gritz/Manager Blaine Williams - Shared screen with speaker view - Recording 2/2
Julie - what is that FB page? We will look into it but I'm not familiar with it.
What are the county's efforts to get the word out to our Hispanic community? I was delivering to a jobsite yesterday and noticed that the non-English speakers seemed to be unaware of social distancing and transmission protocols. We saw some posters at the commission meeting last week. How do we get these posters so they can be posted in appropriate areas?

Please put in our comments any that you know of that aren't
If this drastic slowdown in our economy continues will ACC look at waiving Business Inventory taxes due in October?
Hello Everyone. This is Brandy, the Founder of Acceptance Recovery Center. We serve 70 men/women in long term residential care. We have found a way to continue serving our residents through telemental health in compliance with HIPPA. However, there is about 20 residents out of work. Given that we are a non-profit and a fee for service program, this really puts us in jeopardy. How can we go about to apply for relief funds through the prosperity package? Other sourcing of funding? We have cut our budget by 25% and we must continue to look at progressive ways to serve our community.
I am sure there are other non-profits that are in the same boat we are that are essential services to our community.
Same, Brandy. We have families understandably canceling in-home services.
What is being done to coordinate with and encourage neighboring counties whose population will use our critical care facilities to enact similar shelter in place rules?
Here’s an online form that you can personalize and send to our senators from your business
The CVB has created a Facebook Group called Support Athens Own where we hope to share information and connect people to support the hospitality and tourism industry. Any fundraisers, grants, etc. for this industry can be shared and supported on this page.
Thank you Rachel! That is perfect!
Just a heads up the ADDA $1,000 grant’s application deadline is March 27th. You can check Athensga.com COVID page under financial assistance
Thank you for all of those resources.

Does anyone know if filing for partial unemployment for our employees at the DOL will interfere with the proposed bill Chris mentioned yesterday re. loans and payroll payback forgiveness?
I hear you mention Oconee County but what contact have you made with the other adjoining counties that border Clarke County?
Very great question. Our residents want to work and are required to do so. Where can we send them for support? Do not want to overwhelm the DOL if they are not equipped, etc.
Please update everyone on that, David. We all need to know.
I followed up with DOL re: partial unemployment The number for finding specific info for this: 404-232-3050
Thank you Mayor Girtz and Blaine....
Thank you for all you are doing for our community.
Ditto that. Thank you to our local government officials. Y'all are doing a phenomenal job.
