The City of Taylor is offering small business relaunch grants of up to $7,500 as part of its “Taylor Together: Small Business Relaunch Grant Program.” This program will aid the business community in overcoming the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. Applications will be accepted through July 20.

To be eligible for the City’s grant relaunch program, you need to be a business or non-profit employing less than 25 employees and physically located in Taylor. Those applying must be current with property and personal taxes paid through 2019; show proof of insurance; and must be a licensed business in Taylor prior to February 29, 2020.

Businesses applying for the City’s relaunch program should be ready to supply copies of the following:

Profit and loss or tax statements for 2017, 2018 and 2019

Estimated revenues for January-May 2020

Estimated revenue losses for April-May 2020

Proof of location in Taylor (lease or deed)

Complete W-9 form and voided check

All requests will be numerically scored and judged by an internal committee. The City has up to $200,000 in grants. Another $26,000 is allocated to personal protection equipment and cleaning support, which will be rolled out at a later date. In the application process, qualifying businesses can request a grant, PPE assistance or both.

The City’s Community Development Department is a vested partner in assisting businesses by leveraging funding that was part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The program will use U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grants to aid in various relaunch costs incurred after March 23, 2020, including:

Rent, lease or mortgage

Payroll

Health care

Utilities

Personal protection equipment, sanitation supplies or electrostatic cleaning

Small businesses make the country run. According to 2016 data, businesses with 20 or less staffers employ 16 percent of the nation’s total workforce. Firms with 500 or less staffer employ 46 percent of America’s workers, and firms with 100 or less account for another 33 percent of the workforce.

America’s unemployment rate was 13.3 percent last month, among the highest recorded figures in U.S. history. Official numbers for April and May should have been worse due to errors in the data collection process, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Michigan has been hit hard – its unemployment rate of 22 percent trends higher than every state except Nevada. It was one of only six states that lost more than 1 million jobs. So there is plenty of work to do in an effort to reset the economy.

“We’re focusing on getting applications from small businesses, micro-businesses, that were substantially affected in a negative manner from the state’s stay home orders,” Community Development Manager Jeff Baum said. “Shutting down non-essential businesses put them in a tough spot. It effected their ability to make their payroll, pay their rent or mortgages, supplies and such.”

Not every applicant will receive funding, and not every application accepted will receive the highest award of $7,500.

“We have developed a scoring system that will help the committee judge the needs of the applicants, in an attempt to award the relaunch monies,” Baum said. “The goal is to partner with our business community, help them over this hurdle, give them a boost and keep economic development in our City healthy.”

The “Taylor Together” program is multi-faceted and ever changing. Before the relaunch grant program was announced, Taylor created and approved an emergency ordinance streamlining a business’s ability to expand use of outdoor property, events, signage and other activities related to governmental restrictions due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic. This Temporary Emergency COVID-19 Recovery Ordinance immediately enabled restaurateurs and bar owners to, in certain circumstances, expand outdoor seating and other offerings. They still go through a step-by-step process to receive an Outdoor Dining & Seating Permit, but the entire program has been streamlined.

For more information, call the Community Development Department at (734) 258-4180.

(NOTE: Wayne County is running a larger, parallel, “Back to Work” grant program, with $50M in available funding and will be offering some 5,000 grants. The county offers up to $10,000 per grant and its applications must be received by July 10.)

Look who's 80!

Edna Moss, a longtime Taylor resident who is widely known as "The Cake Lady" turned 80 today and received a visit from one of her admirers, Mayor Rick Sollars.

"Edna has been making specialty cakes for all types of events for as long as I can remember," Mayor Sollars said. "She's one of Taylor's great partners -- and a huge favorite at the William Ford Senior Activities Center.

"At the very least, we thought some beautiful flowers were the perfect match for this special lady on her special birthday."

Not surprisingly, Edna is a big favorite on her Monroe Street block. Some friends came over last night while she was sleeping and decorated the entire home and front lawn.

Congratulations, Edna!

IMPROVING TAYLOR

IMPROVING TAYLOR

The amount of road and sidewalk improvements across Taylor is stunning. We took a quick trip around the community to document work that is finished and/or ongoing. Here’s a breakdown of the images, in order:

NEW NORTHLINE ROAD SIDEWALKS are being installed between the Wayne County Community College District’s Downriver Campus and the Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber offices and the City of Southgate to the east. This area, which crosses the railroad tracks near Empire Street, had left Taylor unconnected from the Downriver Greenways route, which enables non-motorized traffic to go from the City through Southgate, Wyandotte and areas south, basically to the Monroe County line. With those new sidewalks in place, cyclists and runners can make their way between the Fletcher Discovery Trail, Heritage Park and the WCCCD campus through to the connected pathways.

STRIPING AND SHARROWS have been added to Superior Avenue, between Racho Road and Telegraph. The two middle lanes are reserved for vehicular traffic, the outside lanes for cyclists. This area connects the new Fletcher Discovery Trail and Fletcher Park area west to Telegraph Road. Large asphalt paths also connect the trail south to the Eureka Road business and entertainment district, and Southland Center. These bicycle “sharrows” are also appearing in residential areas north of Heritage Park, making it easy for cyclists to get from the midtown Goddard Road area all the way to Eureka.

GODDARD ROAD sidewalks and ADA-compliance intersections are being installed as part of the road’s renovation between Beech Daly and Telegraph Road. Crews are currently working their way up and down Goddard. Goddard will be repaved in the same area, starting with the two outside lanes before shifting to the three inside lanes. This work will run through October.

BEECH DALY, between Brest and Wick roads, has been completely finished. The project started last fall and was stopped by a huge pre-Thanksgiving snowstorm. It was finished earlier this month.

MONROE, from Ecorse Road north to Trolley Drive, has been repaved – and hasn’t looked this good for a long time. That stretch of road, which is a direct connector to Dearborn Heights and Dearborn, is heavily traveled, due to the Kroger located at Ecorse and Monroe. This area also goes over railroad tracks, and the ride down Monroe hasn’t been this smooth is some time.

MORTENVIEW, between Goddard Road and Wick, was also recently finished. Unlike many other north-south streets in the city, Mortenview is a very scenic, winding drive lined by huge trees and well-manicured homes. The street had needed a repaving for some time, and looks tremendous.

LASTLY, WICK ROAD has been repaved between Mortenview and Pelham-Allen Road.

The annual National Day of Prayer celebration, usually held in public at City Hall each May, is being presented in a video. This year’s celebration was changed due to Michigan’s state of emergency restrictions thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced "stay home" orders, and closed businesses, schools and buildings. Pastor Ryan Bettinger of Northline Church and his staff coordinated a pre-recorded video presentation, which includes religious leaders from across the community, musical presentations and Mayor Rick Sollars. It runs a little over 40 minutes.

Welcome change of plans!

UPDATED: GFL curbside compost pickup restarts on Tuesday, April 14

After temporarily suspending all curbside compost services last week, GFL has reversed course and will restart the service with its Tuesday, April 14 routes. GFL will therefore continue to provide all curbside trash, recycling, compost and bulk services into the near future, despite problems encountered during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, the City of Taylor’s Transfer and Compost Facility, 16300 Racho Road south of Eureka, will continue to be open and accept compost drop offs during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 2:45 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays.

There are special rules for compost drop offs at the transfer station:
You must be a resident and show identification at the entrance
Drop offs should stop at the gate, wait in the vehicle with their windows rolled up, and just show your ID to the gate attendant through your closed window
During this COVID-19 pandemic, compost drop offs will be free and will not count against your annual single-drop limit
There will be no help or assistance upon dropping compost, in an effort to keep both residents and employees safe.

The City of Taylor and GFL continue to closely monitor the developments of the COVID-19 outbreak. We will be sure to keep you up-to-date on any impacts to your service, and let you know when those currently suspended resume.
