City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas is urging the community to support business and shop local amidst coronavirus concerns.
At the Council Meeting last week our Councillors unanimously endorsed a suite of measures to help the local community and local businesses that are struggling due to the community concerns surrounding the Novel Coronavirus.
“I was joined in Rhodes today by Fiona Martin MP to enjoy a delicious meal at Rhodes Phoenix Restaurant,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.
“Local businesses are the backbone of our community and I am calling on everyone to get out and about and love local by shopping at our local businesses and town centres throughout the City.”
“In this City, our diversity is our strength. When we are met with adversity this community responds by getting behind those in need and supporting one another.”
“To support our local business community, we are waiving business use of footpath fees in affected areas of Rhodes and Concord West for February and March 2020.”
“We will also be launching a ‘Love Local’ business promotion campaign to encourage our community support our local economy and will continue to support our community by sharing authorized health and welfare resources and programs.”
“Our community members can also look forward to a recovery event program to support and celebrate community connection in the coming months.”
“The approach to managing the spread of the virus here in Australia has been very effective and I commend both the State and Federal Governments, and our community for following the advice of health authorities during this global health incident.”
