    BIDS are a TAX!

    A business improvement district (BID) is a defined area within which businesses are required to pay an ADDITIONAL TAX (or levy) in order to fund projects within the district’s boundaries.

    Your water and Sewer bill have Gone UP!

    Have you checked your WATER & SEWER Bill? The city RAISED the prices quietly! My bills went from $800 to almost $1200. How much more can we raise prices to pay for the citys wasteful spending? I am NOT against anything – ONLY the same failed ways of doing things in the past – there are BETTER solutions We make it too easy for our politicians to spend our money. Hold them all accountable for EVERY penny. We cannot afford another tax – VOTE NO TO THE 3RD AVE BID TAX! Save the $12090 – $1500 per year per building to start! NO NEW TAXES

    “An independent audit found that roughly 20% of the MTA’s construction projects in the last five years ran over budget—a jarring statistic that raises concerns about the agency’s ability to pull off a proposed $51.5 billion capital plan that promises to overhaul the city’s transit systems” https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-mta-audit-projects-exceed-costs-20191222-biwhrqjpojfvhffc27gav454ni-story.html NO NEW TAXES!
