Several communities around us have enacted legislationclosing down businesses where larger groups gather. I have discussed this withall the commission members, and via a strawpoll, we have decided that wewill ask our gathering places (Boondocks, Kim's Corner, and Blue Sky Junction)to voluntarily follow CDC recommendations and limit themselves to no more than10 people in the establishment at any one time. We are hopeful that thebusinesses will self regulate by offering off-sale liquor and curbside deliveryof food instead of dine-in and minimize public contact with their staff.CommissionerBernie Zahn has graciously volunteered to talk to thesebusinesses on the commission's behalf.
With the closing of businesses around us, we will continueto monitor and accessthe impact on our town as we go forward. If we feelthat self-regulation is not working, we will look at doing an emergency sessionto enact legislation similar to the communities around us.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
