Today Mayor John Dailey, in a Facebook post, called for an emergency meeting of the Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency (IA) to address the economic issues faced by local businesses due to the COVID-19.
The Blueprint IA includes elected officials on the city and county commissions.
Noting that most economic relief will come from federal and state governments, Dailey said “There is a conversation that needs to take place in regards to what is the local governments role and what we can do.”
Mayor John Dailey’s statement and video is provided below:
I know IA Chairman Bryan Desloge and all of my colleagues are working tirelessly to meet the needs of our community in these unprecedented times. Today I’m recommending that we convene an emergency Intergovernmental Agency meeting to discuss a local relief package for our small businesses and workers who have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
