Simi Valley hiring small business advocate

As part of its budget for next year, the Simi Valley City Council will hire a management analyst, who will help business owners looking to relocate their companies into the area or smooth out the business application process, the Ventura County Star reports.

City officials are also considering a “business roundtable,” which would bring various city officials together to discuss the issues or constraints that may affect a local small business owner looking to start a corporation, according to the paper.

“It comes down to streamlining the process for business expansion, which creates jobs, and more jobs creates a better local economy, our tax revenues go up and we have a better city budget,” Councilman Steve Sojka, who serves as chairman of the city’s small business advisory committee, told the paper.

The move comes as most cities in the area are dealing with severe budget issues. The Pacific Coast Business Times reports that 25 cities in the Tri-Counties region are dealing with a combined $73 million in budget cuts for next year.ADNFCR-3052-ID-19876743-ADNFCR
