Councilor Scott Schmitt agreed, say- ing the hoops are "absolutely ridicu- lous" and the hurdles "so incredibly enormous." He said the state just needs to get the money out, and it's "immor- al" that it hasn't been disbursed in a more timely manner after months of businesses dying. By the time business- es do get the money they're seeking, said Council President Craig Dwyer, it's often too late. On the resolution to spread out licensing payments, Morris Salvatore said Mutter wanted to offer struggling business owners some relief, allowing them to pay the fees on or before the end of the fiscal year next June 30.
