An Update on Aaron & Moses
As we move toward the slow reopening of Twinsburg, we continue to plan for a significant decrease in our income tax revenue. Yesterday, the Governor announced a $775 million dollar State budget cut for the remainder of 2020. The City is looking at all of our operations and making some very difficult decisions on how we manage our core services and brace for the unknown financial impact of COVID-19.
Over the last couple of weeks, I have been discussing with Council the City’s continued operation of Aaron & Moses restaurant. There were plans to change our operations and menu for this coming golf season in hopes of better serving our customers and making the restaurant profitable for the City. We have great employees working for A&M, from our manager and executive chef to all the servers, bartenders, hostesses, line cooks and dishwashers. Their work over the last couple of years is truly appreciated.
Right now, the City needs to focus all of our resources on our core services to the residents. With that being said, we have decided to seek an outside operator for our restaurant space at Gleneagles. Our hope is that we find an operator that becomes a long term partner with the City and establishes a place that all of our residents and their families want to patronize. That has always been our goal.
I realize that this may be disappointing to some residents and a relief to others. It has not been an easy decision, but we think it is the right decision moving forward in this uncertain economic climate. I hope the residents support whoever decides to occupy the space for years to come.
Thanks for your understanding and support.
