Geneva to help businesses affected by works

The City of Geneva has voted unanimously in favour of a motion to help businesses which are being negatively affected by nearby public road works.

But the type of assistance being offered is vague – and it doesn’t necessarily mean money. 

The city will endeavour to make sure access is maintained and cafes should be able to keep their terraces. 

But there could be a temporary reduction in business rents. 

The mayor, Alfonso Gomez, made it clear the main aim of the motion is to help small businesses.
