Tuscaloosa ponder $400K in help for bars hurt by pandemic

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — City pioneers in the home of the University of Alabama are thinking about $400,000 in help to help bars that had to close down due to the pandemic.

Bar proprietors in Tuscaloosa say they are being harmed by a city request that constrained them to close for about fourteen days after understudies came back to town and many new Covid diseases were affirmed. The command came after huge groups assembled outside certain nightspots standing by to get in.

So authorities are thinking about a bundle that would give as much as $400,000 in small business relief. WIAT-TV reports the city’s money board endorsed the arrangement Tuesday, and the City Council could decide on the measure on Sept. 15.

Chairman Walt Maddox proposed going through cash from the city’s pandemic relief fund to support Tuscaloosa’s roughly 30 bars.
