    I own salon 505 on pier Avenue. I am concerned for my business future since it has come to my attention that my landlord is charging me full rent with no exceptions. It is concerning that a landlord still wants to make a profit during such financial hardship on his tenants. I feel that it is imperil that everyone come together and do what they can to help each other and not necessarily for profit during this time. I know one of the subjects for this meeting is to potentially block landlords from charging rent during this closure. I cannot tell you how important this is for the tenants who are also losing income and cannot put food on the table for their families. Our rent is our largest expense and we have no choice but to remain at home with our families and kids that are home from school to stay safe and help our community. We rely on the city of Hermosa Beach to protect small business owners at times like this. If this is not the right time to make this call then when is it? I just wanted to make my opinion heard thank you for reading my comment. I think I speak for most business owners in Hermosa Beach when I say that we need your help to stay afloat during this pandemic. Best regards Therese De Vos
