Plan, Prepare and Respond
Welcome to Downtown
New York Pizza & Grill George Singh, owner and his nephew Jas Singh and wife Jacyln were our gracious host this month on our Facebook post. Jacyln gave us a tour of their restaurant, sharing their COVID-19 protocols, menu, and delivery service options. At noon that same day the Governor closed inside dining, but the good news is they have takeout, Grub Hub and Door Dash, so you can order and still get their wonderful food and not cook during these hot days of summer. Speaking of the heat, did you know that they also serve Thrifty’s Ice Cream, all of the top flavors, you can get a scoop, a sundae, or a milkshake with your favorite flavor. I love dessert, but before you indulge, don’t forget to check out their menu for lunch or dinner. They have salads, sandwiches, you have to try the Mediterranean, my favorite Chicken Marsala, Grilled Salmon, pastas, wings, sides, & an array of international pizzas. George is a trained chef, having a restaurant in New York, he brings the world to Dinuba with his ethnic dishes and California cuisine adaptions there is something for everyone. The restaurant is currently unavailable for dine in but they offer a very engaging dining experience, from the photo of New York skyline, to TVs playing sports, music and news, a game area for the kids, you, your family and friends will find lots to enjoy!

Job Killer Bills
AB 196 (Lorena Gonzalez; D-San Diego) Establishes Costly “Conclusive Presumption” of Injury. Significantly increases workers’ compensation costs for employers by “conclusively” presuming (non-rebuttable) that contraction of COVID-19 by all “essential workers” is a workplace injury. Establishes an extremely concerning precedent for expanding presumptions into the private sector for COVID-19 issues, which the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) recently estimated will add billions in costs to California’s workers’ compensation system.
AB 1107 (Chu; D-San Jose) Massive Unemployment Insurance Compensation and Tax Increase. Would significantly raise employers’ payroll taxes to fund a 130% increase in unemployment payments just as California’s businesses are struggling to survive a pandemic-caused shutdown.
Californians to Save Prop 13 and Stop Higher Property Taxes
Special interests already qualified one measure for the November 2020 statewide ballot that would dismantle Proposition 13’s property tax protections (Initiative 17-0055) and now they are gathering signatures to qualify a second version (Initiative 19-0008). . Both measures would raise taxes on commercial and industrial property by requiring reassessment at current market value at least every three years. This type of property tax is known as a “split-roll tax” because it splits the property tax roll, assessing business property differently than residential property. Detailed comparison of both split-roll measures.

SUBSIDIZED MARKETING PROGRAM
The Tulare County Economic Development Corporation, along with private sector partners, is pleased to announce the creation of a digital marketing campaign exclusive to Tulare County businesses. Due to the recent economic downturn associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, many small businesses have had to limit or completely stop their operations. With restrictions slowly beginning to ease and businesses beginning to reopen, there is a significant need to let the public know that Tulare County is open for business.
The marketing campaign includes a digital listing of a business’ operating information, contact information, and current social distancing guidelines. This listing will be available at NO COST to any Tulare County business that wishes to participate and will be circulated throughout Tulare County through the EDC, local Chambers of Commerce, and other public and private partner distribution channels. Participating businesses also have the option of taking out ads in the listing at a 50% subsidized rate. Ads will be targeted to the city or community where the business is located. If your business would like to be included in the listing click on link above.
By providing a resource that lists which businesses are open and how they are engaging their customers, both the general public and business owners alike can identify where, when, and how they can do business. The hope is that this listing will stimulate the local economy and help small businesses in our community get back on their feet. If you have any questions about the program, please contact Dinuba Chamber or Samuel Diaz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
