    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. The BID is often funded primarily through the levy but can also draw on other public and private funding streams. DOUBLE TAXED! These districts typically fund services which are PERCEIVED (FEELINGS NOT FACTS) by some businesses as being inadequately performed by government with its existing tax revenues, such as cleaning streets, providing security, making capital improvements, construction of pedestrian and streetscape enhancements, and marketing the area.

    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
