CORNING, Calif. - The City of Corning is doing its part to keep local businesses open. City leaders are giving owners the tools they need for free.

The City of Corning is giving tables and chairs to businesses to help expand outside. The temporary outdoor seating was approved Tuesday by Corning's City Council.

"Nobody wants to eat outside," said the owner of Rancho Grande, Jose Figueroa.

Figueroa doesn't want to expand outdoors.

“The city offered me some parts to put outside as you see the parking lot is too small and to me, we go from one problem to another for me it's too risky for our clients what if a car crosses over and hits someone?" said Figueroa.

Lisa Linnet is the City Clerk said there is a total of $10,000 requested from general funds reserves.

Linnet said tables, chairs, awnings, shade structures, and more will be leased to restaurants for no cost.

Denny’s already provided their own tables and chairs outdoor- action news now spoke with the manager, Mandy Olson on the process of getting more tables from the city.

"We’re pleased that the city is offering the shades and the tables it was really easy she sent me the email I sent it up to my boss she just has to complete it and sends it back," said Olson.

This means restaurants will have to apply for a permit to use the public right away, parking lots, or private property.

Linnet said after the emergency is over, the city will be using the equipment for community events.

Corning Mayor Douglas Harley Jr. said right now they have not set a limit on the number of items a restaurant can use.
