    A BID is a tax – its time we are heard

    I have been thinking, I do it a lot – why do we need a BID tax when all our expenses are up? Ponder as i may the answer did not come – why vote for another tax – which will be more burdensome? We do not pay for the merchant association today so why should we be forced to pay a BID tax forever and a day? Its clear to us, 458 strong, we don’t need another tax and the ones pushing for this have got it all wrong! A BID is a TAX, it can never be removed, it always needs more even if we don’t approve.

    Why would you pay a tax instead of paying merchant fees?

    Ask the BID committee/Merchant association the hard questions. By their OWN admission they cant collect enough money to go on – Think about this: If we don’t voluntarily pay NOW – WHY would we want to be forced to pay with a tax? The merchant association collects less than 30% of their dues because the same old people do the same old things and we the people do not find enough value in it – hence why we do not pay! NOW to punish us, the same people with the same failed ideas want to tax us to pay for their same failures! A BID is a tax, A BID…

    There is ALWAYS another way

    3rd Ave Lights can be saved WITHOUT A TAX. Councilman brannan Justin Brannan gave the BID committee $36,000 of our money, 5th ave received $300,000 of our money to study a problem they spent over $7 million and failed to solve – basic math – $300,000 + $36,000 = $360,000 – 3rd ave lights cost $30k a year THAT’S 10 YEARS OF LIGHTS without a tax – Councilman brannan and the BID must explain why they cant have the lights paid for without a TAX! facts – NEVER trust anyone that says “there’s no other way” than wants to tax all of us – Ask them all the hard questions…
