“The bottom line is that a lot of businesses, particularly these small businesses, have suffered dramatically as a result of the pandemic,” Councilmember Darrell Clarke said. “We are in a very small way, we’re going to be allotting around $12 million in small business support to kind of get them through this process until we can open up our economy.”
