The City of Temecula does not have the authority to override the State of California by re-opening businesses that are currently closed by State orders. The State of California determines which businesses are a part of the “essential” workforce and/or part of each stage of re-opening. Although the City is proactively lobbying on behalf of Temecula Valley to safely and responsibly re-open our local economy, the decision is made by the State of California.
The City is providing the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) additional office space within its business incubator and resource center known as the Temecula Valley Entrepreneur’s Exchange or TVE2, which is located within Temecula’s former City Hall at 43200 Business Park Drive. The extra office space allows SBDC to expand its one-on-one consulting services for existing businesses who have experienced supply chain disruptions, staffing challenges, a decrease in gross receipts or customers, a temporary closure, or other impacts as a result of COVID-19. These free business consulting services are available now and will continue through this pandemic, and beyond. Business owners can get guidance and advice from industry experts on a multitude of topics including finance, human resource/staffing laws, disaster/contingency planning and more. COVID-19 response planning will be flexible and change as our business community recovers and additional areas of assistance are identified. Contact Paul Nolta at email@example.com.
