New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer’s Red Tape Commission visited Flushing Town Hall this morning, drawing nearly 100 people recommending ways to help small business owners cut through red tape.
Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and Queens Tribune Published Michael Nussbaum delivered welcoming remarks to the crowd, which filled our Gallery and included small business leaders, community leaders and advocates.
The Commission is crossing the city (and holding five hearings) to listen to business owners and entrepreneurs directly, across all five boroughs, with the purpose of completing an independent, bottom-up review of regulations that affect business formation and growth across the five boroughs.
The meetings are designed to give business owners an opportunity to tell their stories and connect with Commission members on particular issues of concern. You can learn more about the Red Tape Commission here.
