    Dear Mme. Supervisor:
    In light of the sudden loss of income for so many, and the IRS postponing tax filing until 15 July, has the Board of Supervisors and Assessor considered extending the tax fee payment date later than the April deadline? At this point every dollar matters until things get up and running again and all help would be hugely appreciated.

    Iam a salon owner.When looking at the comprehensive list, number 13 k), states personal grooming as an essential business.
    Does this mean hair salons etc can stay open?
    It’s very confusing. Personally I think everyone should abide by the “stay at home” order. On the other hand as an owner of a business where most of the staff will not be able to financially survive without any income, I am torn.
    Can I allow them to make the choice on an individual basis while taking extra precautions?
    My staff consists of all renters, so technically I am not an employer.
    Can someone please clarify?
    We are closed today waiting further instruction and would appreciate some clarity.

    I heard this morning that you were angry that stores were opening early for Seniors and that Seniors were suppose to stay home. We have stayed home but we still need food. We have no one to shop for us. If you have a suggestion I would love to hear it.

    Hi Janice, Belated congratulation on you new position. Well deserved. I wish you represented Carson. My Supervisor has retired so I am coming to you for help. I have a company in Carson that is manufacturing hand sanitizer and wanted make sure they are exempt from the county closure order. Can they continue operating?

    I have been told that homeless people are being housed at Dockweiler Beach. Have these people tested positive for Covid19?

    Dear Supervisor Hahn,
    The coronavirus presents us with a growing number of logistical challenges. Among these is the concern for the lack of hospital beds as the number of confirmed cases grows. I would like to recommend that you and the county consider arranging to do what is necessary to re-open the recently closed Saint Vincent Hospital to accommodate several hundred of the patients in a real hospital setting. Given the emergency and the fact that the hospital closed only recently, the facility might quickly be re certified, the staff re-hired and the facility re-opened before its beds and equipment are removed by the owners.
    I hope that this suggestion might be timely and helpful,

    Thanks and regards,

    Larry Keller

    Supervisor Hahn,
    Please consider a step of relief that will greatly help stressed families by Extending the property tax deadline. This could also help small property owners who have restaurants or other businesses as tenants who cannot pay rent. Many of us are facing economic catastrophe, andvthis small step could free up cash to buy food and essentials.
    Can you see giving a three month extension?
    Thanks!

    Janice,
    Please keep in mind that many of the Landlords in our City are moderate to low-income households and cannot pay their mortgages without rental income. In fact, my sole income is from my rentals, which took me 40 years of hard work to acquire while I worked multiple jobs, owned small businesses, provided jobs and paid taxes over the years.
    Please make sure that there is a clause in the emergency “no eviction” legislation that requires the tenant to provide proof that they are unable to pay rent, and not just arbitrarily allowed to stop paying it just because the government gave them a “pass”. We need to make sure that if they are provided relief, the people who are on the hook for the mortgage are reimbursed and subsided as well.
    I am not a big corporation who can afford this. I’m just a hard-working resident of Long Beach, who takes pride in her properties and provides clean, safe and affordable housing.
    Thank you for your consideration.
    Hope
