Whether it's families adjusting to distance learning, professionals working remotely, or businesses shuttered by the pandemic Covid has been hard on all of us. I've been working to help ease the burden on our families and community to help restore our way of life.
The Council voted this week at a special meeting to add an additional $100,000 to the Small Business Grant Program. This brings the total to $580,000. This should allow 60 businesses in Lakeville to receive grants to offset expenses related to the pandemic.
Between the City, Dakota County, and State of MN 270 businesses in Lakeville have received these funds to help bridge the gap. At our meeting next week, we will look to expand eligibility and the amount of funds in this program.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me if I can be of assistance.
