Small businesses play a crucial role in our community, creating jobs and providing much needed goods and services. It’s National Small Business Week and that’s a good time to remember that city government should be a partner to small businesses providing prompt assistance with business licenses, planning, and permitting. I’ve talked to many small business owners in Salt Lake and I often hear that they feel unsupported by city government and that the city is too often an adversary. As mayor, I commit to streamlining city government services for small business and operating an efficient and responsive City Hall that helps small businesses achieve their full potential.
