We have no actionable intel regarding any potential events tomorrow in Lafayette. That being said, we have dramatically increased our staffing tomorrow through the evening. We will have a very proactive presence throughout the town and especially our downtown business district. – Ben Alldritt, Chief of Police, City of Lafayette
As a business owner you are probably asking yourself the question, “Do I board up my storefront before the polls close on Tuesday? “This election is anything but normal. What happens if one group is not happy with the outcome or even the eventual outcome. We know there will be protests, and many fear destruction of property and/or violence could come to communities just like ours.
We want to let you all know that at this time there has been no imminent threats to the City of Lafayette. If the Chamber learns there is a potential threat, we will share it as quickly as we can. Boarding up your store is a person decision that you will have to make. As of today, I know of only three businesses that are considering this. However, if you do decide to board up, and you need help getting the materials or assistance with the construction, one of our Chamber members is here to help you.
The AB Construction crew would like to let you know that they are here to help. They are available to board up windows in the area today and tomorrow. Please let them know if your business requires their services. Their goal is to help our community in these difficult times. Contact Angela Mullin at 925-708-2491 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
