POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 11, 2014 Page 7 Meet Councilor Michelle Wu - East Boston Main Streets Invites the East Boston Small Business Community to a Forum On Monday, April g8 th, City Councilor Michelle Wu will hold a forum at the East Boston Branch Library, 365 Bremen Street, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm with local business owners to dis- cuss their experiences navigat- ing the permitting and licensing process with the City of Boston. The Councilor wants to build off of the real experiences of busi- ness owners as she works to improve the system. At the forum, business owners will have an opportunity to talk about what worked and what didn&apos;t work throughout the process of opening. Was there a specific step that was most frustrating and took the most time? Were there certain forms that seemed redundant? Was there a step that was easy that could serve as an example for other processes? These personal stories are an essen- tial starting point for identifying commonalities, both posi- tive and negative in the permitting and licensing process. For further details or questions, please call Max Gruner, Executive Director of East Boston Main Streets at 617-561-1044.
