Businesses prepare for President's Visit


by Lila Carrera

President Barack Obama will be speaking at General Electric on St. Paul Avenue Thursday morning.

"Our streets are going to be closed, so I don't even know if I can open before he get here," said Iris Garza. Garza owns a bar just a few blocks from GE.

She said she may have to open an hour later because of his arrival and the street closures.

Police said beginning at 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. North Prairie between St Paul and College Avenue will be closed on Thursday.

CBS 58's Lila Carrera reports.
