The Midway Chamber of Commerce estimates more than 200 St. Paul buildings were damaged or destroyed in the past week during protests over George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody.
The chamber will host an hour-long virtual panel discussion at 8 a.m. Thursday to offer guidance to business owners and operators.
Titled “Your Business Was Damaged … What Do You Do Now?” the forum is free but advance registration is required.
Moderated by commercial law attorney Brian Alton, the forum features experts in insurance, legal property rights and restoration: Caleb Brunz, president of Paul Davis Restoration; Brian Hayes, an assistant vice president with Western Insurance; Matt Vatter, assistant commissioner of enforcement for the Minnesota Department of Commerce; and TJ Patton, audit director with the Department of Commerce’s Insurance Enforcement Team.
