    Just The BID Facts

    Over $1000 per property owner a yearStarting Budget: $560,000Starting Salaries: $250,000. It’s being said that BID opposition is propaganda – we don’t know the facts. So lets have ONLY the facts about a BID. BID board members are employees – they get a salary – ask 5th ave! A BID is a TAX – an assessment tax, meaning the government enforces collection. If you dont pay your TAXES, you will be fined and a lien be placed on your property – A TAX INDEED This Assessment TAX – once begun, can NEVER be removed A BID’s budget is NOT CAPPED – EXPENSES ALWAYS GO UP – hence a BID’s budget…

    The BID committee it speaks!

    Some facebook discussions we had with the BID committee. They Live! But alas no real person they hide behind facebook and will not meet to discuss. I gave them a chance – lets see….. Make a BID on Third Anthony, you are more than welcome to start your own Merchants Association.

    The BID Busters

    We, the people that would pay this BID TAX, welcomed councilman Brannan to 3rd ave and THANKED him for supporting a BID TAX on our properties and businesses! Our meeting with councilman Brannan had a large turnout and some of us posed for a picture. We say NO to the BID TAX. Thank you councilman Brannan.

    No BID seems to work!

    Edwin Cosme August 14, 2019 at 7:56 pm Are you kidding me currently there are 76 BID’s throughout NYC and not one not one since it inception in 1981 has been voted on to dissolved and many of us are beginning to understand why – the fact is that once the BID is formed its pretty much up to the executive committee for each of its prospective BID to vote to dissolve and we do all know that this will never happen because in doing so they literally vote themselves out of an income and job. Another form of Taxation Without Representation! Everything is already structured in such a way…

    Will a BID fill these empty stores?

    3rd ave has a large number of empty stores – this does not look good for a neighborhood – in the span of 4 blocks we noticed 1 block almost devoid of life – empty stores stood out like tombstones. Will a BID fill these stores? 5th ave spent $5 million and counting and they have almost same number of empty stores. A BID is a tax that provides no benefits

    3rd ave is clean!

    We just walked along 3rd ave from 75st to 81 st. We found the streets to be spotless, the sidewalks bright and clean and no garbage flowing out of the pails or filth stains on the side walk – UNLIKE 5th ave! If 3rd ave is as clean as the pictures show, than why do we need to spend more money on “cleaning services”? 5th ave is FILTHY compared to 3rd ave and they spent $5 Million Dollars and counting! Compare to Filthy 5th ave with an expensive BID!
