The City of Melbourne should be congratulated for providing stimulus to small business during the COVID-19 crisis.
The Lord Mayor, Sally Capp, has announced a $10 million stimulus package to support businesses who are suffering due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unbelievably, the City of Melbourne is providing more stimulus to small business during the COVID-19 crisis than the Andrews Labor Government.
Victoria is the only state in Australia without a stimulus package. Why? Because the Andrews Labor Government blew the budget before this pandemic began, and has run out of money.
Andrews must announce a stimulus package and start helping Victorian businesses who are doing it so tough.
