A “recovery fund” to assist small business owners impacted by the city of Atlanta’s water crisis is being established by the city.

Mayor Andre Dickens told the Atlanta City Council at its Monday meeting that the new recovery fund would help small businesses “adversely affected” by the water woes that started Friday.

“We know the crucial part that our small businesses play in our lives and our economy and making sure that we have thriving neighbors,” Dickens told council during an appearance in chambers. “We want to help them regain their footing if they were affected by these events from this weekend.”
