The City of Snoqualmie understands the coronavirus and COVID-19 crisis has affected all of us including our local businesses. The City of Snoqualmie and the SnoValley Chamber of Commerce are partnering on many efforts to support them.
Mayor Larson, SnoValley Chamber of Commerce leadership, and City of Snoqualmie employees are meeting weekly with local small businesses to learn about their economic challenges and share information about regional, state, and federal loans; financial resources available to their employees; and preparing for recovery. All meetings are remote as we all follow the Stay Home, Stay Healthy order from Governor Inslee.
The City of Snoqualmie has also launched the “Get It To Go Snoqualmie” campaign, which highlights local restaurants that are open for delivery, take-out, and curbside service. Residents are also encouraged to make purchases online from local businesses and buy e-cards, even for businesses that are temporarily closed.
“Snoqualmie’s local businesses need us now,” said Mayor Matt Larson. “They are there for us throughout each season and each year, often sustaining us through snowstorms and floods. Now it’s our turn to consciously give back so they’ll still be there as we move toward reopening and recovery. It’s possible some businesses may have trouble staying afloat”.
“Local businesses are the heart of Snoqualmie’s community and are vital to keeping our community strong. They employ our friends and neighbors. They sponsor our community events and donate to our non-profits. They serve our residents and visitors to Snoqualmie. The city is committed to doing all we can to help.”
