COVID-19 Business Resources

Millcreek is OPEN

A message from Mayor silvestrini

It’s amazing to see how Millcreek businesses have adapted to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and the difficulties it brings: safety for employees and patrons through social distancing, hand washing, now masks. Many Millcreek businesses remain open with the ability to provide their services and products while adhering to appropriate precautionary practices. We encourage our residents to limit trips and interactions and adhere to all mandated COVID-19 safety practices.

However, we understand that residents need services and supplies, and we would like to share with everyone ways that you can get what you need and help support our business community during this difficult time.

All licensed businesses in Millcreek have been asked to provide information about what special service they would like to share with the community during this critical time. If you would like to add your business information to this list, please email your message (up to 100 words) to businesscouncil@millcreek.us by noon on Thursdays to be featured in the Friday e-newsletter.

-Jeff Silvestrini, Mayor
