Huntington seeks to help small businesses get back on track

Small businesses previously designated as non-essential under the New York State on PAUSE order are getting some good news from the Town of Huntington.

The town announced on Wednesday that it is taking several measures to accelerate economic recovery, including temporarily allowing businesses to reserve up to three metered parking spaces in front of their stores for curbside pick-up and delivery.

Town officials have established a Huntington Small Business Economic Recovery Task Force, comprised of local business leaders and representatives from the Huntington, East Northport, Melville, and Northport Chambers of Commerce, with the goal of determining the steps to safely reopen businesses as the summer season approaches.

The town also received half a million dollars in block grant funding from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securities Act for community development.
