There will be a hearing at the City Council on Intro 711, a bill that would limit the ECB's power to unilaterally raise the fine levels on small business beyond those that are established by statute or local law. As many small business people are aware, ECB has attempted to do just that in the past. This is all part of Bloomberg’s rapacious regulatory policy that has targeted neighborhood retailers for the past four years. If reelected we can not only expect more of the same and we should be prepared for a lot worse. The Council bill should be vigorously supported by every retailer.
