Disaster relief for fire-affected businesses

Mayor Mark Farrell drew upon the Small Business Disaster Relief Fund in late March to help seven businesses that were affected by a four-alarm fire in North Beach. The fund allows the businesses to get up to $10,000 to replace inventory, purchase equipment, make security deposits on new leases, pay employees, and other expenses.

Farrell said he wanted to make sure the businesses could be back up and running quickly. District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin added, “We’ve already seen the North Beach Business Association step in to help place displaced employees with other neighborhood small businesses. We will need the city’s laser focus and support in the coming months to ensure that the 500 block of Columbus Avenue remains intact.”

The businesses affected by the fire and able to access the fund are Coit Liquors, Ferry Plaza Seafood, Tuk Tuk Thai Cafe, The Salzburg, Rogue Ales Public House, Jack Lee Fong Insurance Agency, and Michelangelo Caffe.
