Cypress City Council to approve pandemic support initiatives at regular meeting on Monday, January 11

The item that looms largest on the agenda for the Cypress City Council on Monday, January 11, is approving pandemic support initiatives that will help small businesses and non-profits within the City’s boundaries with direct monetary funding.

The four programs, to be administered by City Manager Pete Grant, are:

  • the Small Business Resiliency Program ($908,000),
  • the Community Plates Hot Meal Program ($350,000),
  • the Post-Pandemic Business Recovery Program ($500,000), and
  • supplemental support for local, partner non-profits ($300,000).

These programs will be funded by a one-time $1.9 million budget surplus from the 2019-2020 budget yet plus $158,000 from the County of Orange. The County funds are specifically targeted for the Small Business Resiliency Program.

Other items of interest on the agenda include approving the gift of a ballistic vest for the Police Department K-9 program (part of the consent calendar), selecting a design for restoring the Katella Avenue median, and discussing the review of a joint venture project proposed by Valley Vista Services, the City’s trash hauler.
