    Would a BID have stopped these tickets? – NO!

    A BID WILL NOT STOP THE CITY FROM FINING US! The garbage trucks did not pick up on their scheduled days, so, we the hard working people of 3rd ave, watched today as the city gave dozens of stores garbage tickets – these tickets are $100 each! A few were cleaning up the garbage not picked up, and were begging the enforcement people NOT to give tickets – “Hey i am cleaning why am i still getting a ticket” – We were ignored and fined! Will a BID have stopped these tickets? Would a BID have stopped the city from attacking us knowing the garbage trucks did not come on…

    ASSESSMENT = TAX

    A BID is a tax Tax assessment, or assessment, is the job of determining the value, and sometimes determining the use, of property, usually to calculate a property tax. This is usually done by an office called the assessor or tax assessor. Governments need to collect taxes in order to function. A TAX BY ANOTHER NAME IS STILL A TAX!!!!!!!!!!!!! The BID and merchants association think we all are stupid!

    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…
