For any additional PPE supplies that businesses need for re-opening, the City of Maple Valley will reimburse eligible businesses up to, however, not exceeding $300.00 per business. Please visit the Association of Washington Business PPE Connect website at www.reboundandrecovery.org/ppe-connect to locate a supplier that can assist you with your PPE needs. Note: If you purchase items directly from a supplier, please submit your receipt to the City for reimbursement. If a business doesn't have the funds available upfront to purchase the PPE supplies needed, they can submit a copy of their invoice (with the price quote) so that funds can be issued to allow the business to place their PPE order. Please submit any receipts or invoices for reimbursement to Finance2@maplevalleywa.gov Note: Your W-9 Form (Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification) and Maple Valley Business License Number (UBI number) need to be submitted along with your PPE receipts. If your organization is exempt, a UBI number is not required. Please include an Invoice Number that is generated by your organization when submitting your documents for reimbursement. read more

We will have a luncheon in July this year! Normally we would be playing golf but our Wacky & Wild Tournament has been rescheduled for August 19th. Our speaker this month is Taryn Hornby with Green River College's Small Business Development Center. She will be discussing what businesses should do to prepare and navigate the new normal of business. Now that businesses are opening back up - what should you be doing in order to plan for the future? Should you be re-evaluating your business plan because of the new normal? Focus on cash flow? How do you navigate PPP and EIDL loans? Bring your questions and she will answer them! read more
