In these unprecedented times, we are seeing different communities come together and take unprecedented action. One example of this is the Pledge from the town of Breckenridge for a 30 day “stopgap” to help small businesses pay rent and get through the month. They are also offering another half a million dollars in support for families who are out of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic and economic halt.

Many small businesses and families in Boulder have the same issues that the town of Breckenridge is experiencing, but will financial action be taken to help those in need make it through the month? With the federal stimulus bill on its way, towns may be waiting to see the condition their communities are in after federal help, before taking action on a local level.
