Commerce Mayor Wyman Williams says the city will receive a grant of more than $500,000 from the federal CARES Act to help defray costs associated with dealing with the coronavirus.  The council will borrow money to pay for street improvements and police and fire department facilities because other debts have been retired, the mayor says.  Also, Texas A&M-Commerce students are starting an "Adopt-A-Street" program to conduct clean-up and repair activities on certain city blocks in Commerce.

Paul Voss, manager of the Commerce Chamber of Commerce, says the chamber will assist businesses in applying for the federal loans that have been made available.  He says the council can help businesses apply online, and has packets that contain the information needed to apply.
