Bainbridge council may assist with Five Fridays effort to support local businesses

The Bainbridge Island City Council will look at a proposed proclamation to support “small and independent businesses” at its council meeting this week.

The proclamation seeks public support for Bainbridge businesses that have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our small and independent businesses have creatively and swiftly amended their models to support and serve their community in this time of need,” the proclamation says, and adds, “our small and independent businesses make up the lifeblood of our local economy.”

The proclamation names the five Fridays in May as “Buy Bainbridge – Support Tomorrow Days.”

“It is fitting and proper to ask our fellow residents, neighbors and visitors to aid our fellow small and independent business owners in this time of crucial need within the city of Bainbridge Island,” the proclamation notes, and it ends by encouraging “all citizens to join together to give back to the community in any way they can.”

The Bainbridge council will meet at 5 p.m. Tuesday, April 28 on Zoom.

The public can join the meeting at or call 1-669-900-9128 (ID: 947 9199 0365).
