Five businesses had their power shut off this week after just one continued to operate indoors.... The power at Arlet’s cafe was also shut off, and they are in compliance “We’ve got 1000’s of dollars of meat and produce in here,” said Leslie Kay, who owns the cafe with his wife. “Because we’re a restaurant with a separate entrance, we’ve been able to stay open the whole time.” They have 250 meals that need to be ready for pickup on Monday. They had to purchase generators immediately to keep their food from spoiling. “When Eric Garcetti comes out and says we’re gonna do this strategically and we’re not gonna use a sledge hammer approach….’ it looks like a sledge hammer to me,” Kay said. “So, someone is not following his directives.” Four businesses, in addition to Crunch, had their power cut because they were all on the same switch.... Los Angeles County announced a compliance and enforcement plan involving fines and a possible license suspension starting at the end of August. McClenden said he wishes the city did the same instead of making things more difficult for these five businesses just trying to stay open. “I would have happily signed the ticket. I would have happily taken the fine, and I would have asked for exactly what I’m asking for now. Please just give me the information and a reasonable time line,” he said." https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/city-mistakenly-cuts-power-to-compliant-businesses-during-shutdown-enforcement-effort-at-neighboring-gym/ar-BB179yqg?ocid=hplocalnews Worst place to run a business. reaLchaZZZy and CrownoftheValley like this.
