    Thank you Liz for everything you have done working with our City. You have paved the way for all of us small businesses.
    The City, the Mayor and City Council are becoming more responsive to our needs and trying to work with us when we face issues.
    But the Dept of Public Service is not any easy dept to work with. Every major issue that has come up that we have had to work with them (ie, parking meters, valet parking) has been a major struggle. This is just one more example of how they saw this is what the books say and we are going to enforce it as stated. No willingness to work with small business or think about the practicality of the rules. Maybe they need to be changed but that would take to much work on their part.
    I am hoping City Council and the Mayor will step in and stop this nonsense.
    Liz and the other small businesses are trying to build up our downtown and need all the help and support they can get.
    Liz and Chad, anything we can do to help with this fight, please let us know. You have the support of all of us small business owners!

    Restaurants on Gay st. and business downtown are defiantly not the only people suffering at the hands of those public workers. My daycare provider has spent the last year trying to get her new center up and running. So much red tape and far too many headaches they kept canceling and dicking her around. She did everything with as much planning ahead as possible and the parents still ended up without a care for their kids during the day for two whole months. She just this week got past all the bullshit. Just think about how many people that effected negatively. I had my son with me at work and thank god he was on his good behavior and my employers are family like. Some of the ladies were not so lucky and had to quit their jobs because this late in the summer day camps are full.

    So it’s a shame to see just how dysfunctional this department is they should fix it and I wonder why the mayor is not addressing it. That’s a pretty lame move on his part. I hope it all gets worked out for the people that are at least trying to do something.

    This reminds me that it’s really nice out, summer is almost over and Barcelona has a beautiful patio and delicious drinks.

    I lived in Cleveland for 10 years & watched friends with businesses have numerous troubles opening then dealing with city officials once they were open.

    Some regret opening in Cleveland. Others try to tough it out. Some others see what’s going on & don’t bother dealing with Cleveland, taking their ideas & money elsewhere.

    All while Cleveland should be doing everything possible to welcome just about any business within city limits.

    I hope Columbus doesn’t become Cleveland.

    Not to be disagreeable, but I don’t think anonymous defamation of character really rises to the level of “a dissenting opinion.”

    Good lord. I’m finding waiting lists for daycare to be a year or longer, which means I’m unavailable for full-time work and not producing much income tax revenue to the City. So counterproductive.

    @ Liz – I didn’t know Kelsey had taken over the 311 Center. I used to volunteer there with the amazing Mary Funk. She must be absolutely spinning right now.

    I miss Mary Funk So Much. She was an amazing Lady and friend
