Questions for Eastern Market

Where will the $20 million to $30 million for restoration come from? And how will merchants get by for the two years estimated for repairs?

The WashExam reports Mayor Fenty outlined some of his plans, including forgiving the merchants' first-quarter sales tax and suspending their rent. Part of the money to rebuild will come from surplus tax collected last year, and a project manager will assess needs and coordinate between the merchants and city agencies.
