PUEBLO — Pueblo restaurants and bars are getting some much-needed supplies.

The city used Cares Act money to buy 14 portable patios for five different businesses.

The patios will help the businesses expand outdoor dining now that indoor seating is currently off limits.

"I am really looking forward to getting them. I think they will be a great asset to our business. We'll be able to do some outside seating which we have never been able to do before," Michael Pacheco, owner of Papa Jose's said.

The city is also providing grants of up to $5,000 for businesses in need.
