Citrus Heights Chamber calls for reopening of businesses

By Mike Hazlip—
The Citrus Heights Chamber of Commerce will hold a meeting Monday afternoon calling for businesses to reopen, according to an announcement released last week.

“We will no longer accept state-wide restrictions on businesses!” an event flier reads. “We want businesses in our community to re-open while following the CDC guidelines to keep their employees and customers safe. Help make our voices heard and safely re-open businesses!”

The announcement lists Sacramento County Supervisor Sue Frost, Attorney Keith Dunnagan, and Businesswoman Lillian Fulton as speakers, along with “one or more” local business owners. The event is scheduled for Feb. 15 at 3 p.m. at 7010 Sunrise Blvd.

Attendees are asked to wear a mask and maintain social distance, as well as wash their hands. Any individuals who are sick are asked to stay home.

The flier includes a quote from the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, emphasizing the phrase “the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

The local Chamber says California’s “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” is inadequate for the diverse businesses in the state. Monday’s meeting agenda will seek a “reasoned and reasonable local plan to safely open businesses,” according to the release.
