New city web page a one-stop business assistance resource
Many local business and employees are facing tenuous times in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The city of Marysville has compiled a list of federal, state and local business resources that may help them weather this economic storm season.
“I want to let you know how much I appreciate that you chose to do business in Marysville,” Mayor Jon Nehring wrote in a message to Marysville businesses on April 6. “As we join the rest of our state and nation in continuing to prioritize the health and safety of our community against the COVID-19 pandemic, I am also concerned about the long-term impacts for our businesses, workforce and overall economy.”
Find the city’s list of business resources at https://www.marysvillewa.gov/1056/Business-and-Employee-Support-and-Resour. One example is the Paycheck Protection Program, a Small Business Administration loan that can help businesses keep their workforce employed. Information and links to many other programs are available as well.
Marysville bank staff suggest you contact the local branch of your financial institution to inquire about business assistance programs; local contact can likely help you more quickly than going through a national call center.
