Economic Injury Disaster Loan The Small Business Administration makes low-interest loans of working capital to businesses impacted by a disaster. At least 5 small businesses need to show a loss for the event to be eligible. Reporting a loss doesn’t mean you need a loan, but it may enable another
business to benefit. And the reporting form is just one page. Please complete and return to firstname.lastname@example.org if this may help you or someone you know. PDC may also help with loans for other needs such as inventory or repairs. Please send a message if you need info on this as well.
Pedestrian walkway should be open on Glisan today following NW Natural paving.
I am still working to get some info from Public Utility Commission on their investigation process and timeline. Just so you know the issue is not forgotten.
