The advisory council will consist of seven members appointed by Mayor Kiesha Lance Bottoms, City Council President Felicia Moore, council members, the city’s economic development agency Invest Atlanta, and the Atlanta Business League.
The small business advisory council is the latest in the city's efforts to help small businesses. In November, the City Council approved an intergovernmental agreement with Invest Atlanta, the city's development agency, to create a loan program for small and micro-businesses.
The agreement is for three years and will be funded with $500,000.
