REDDING, Calif. – On Wednesday, on Congressman Doug LaMalfa held a virtual town hall with business owners.

Over 40 people showed up at the Zoom meeting. Congressman LaMalfa tackling topics troubling the local business community, such as issues with the Payment Protection Program, how the coronavirus pandemic heavily impacted the local economy, and when business can get back to normal just to name a few.

Action News Now checked in with Final Draft Brewing in Redding. Owners Adam Ward and Bart Hauptman say they’re still waiting on their money from the program to come in.

“We need as many local officials to be involved in the pulse of what's happening and looking at both sides and re-opening the local economy,” said Adam Ward.

There is some good news for the brewery. Starting on May 14, Final Draft is opening back up for dine-in services. But the restaurant will be reducing the size of groups coming in, creating six-feet distance between parties and will still be offering curbside and take out services for customers.

The Redding Chamber of Commerce hosted the virtual town hall meeting.
