Kelly Fitzpatrick started this petition to Bethlehem City Hall

When restaurants were closed for indoor dining Mccarthy's made the difficult desicion to invest into outdoor igloos for outdoor seating.  It turned out to be a brilliant investment. Diners could go to a restaurant and have a sense of normalcy while dining in a unique and safe environment.  But now 3 weeks later they have been told to remove them.  Yesterday I watched, while dining at Mccarthy's, them lose business as they no longer had the igloos up.  As restaurant are struggling to keep going Mccarthy's has attempted to reorganize and adapt at every turn to the pandemic.  Should not the city be seeking to assist restaurants and not hinder them.  When Mccarthy's has followed all pandemic protocol to a tee and others have not, why would you issue an order that negatively affects their business.  Even if you say that there were reasons for their removal couldn't you have given them a compromise or requirements to meet to allow them to stay up.  If you were going to ask for their removal so soon after their purchase why grant approval in the first place.  The money spent on the igloos to help keep Mccarthy's going and help increase their seating when there are limits on indoor seating will negatively affect their business.  This type of decision is irresponsible for a city hall especially during a pandemic.
