Watkins Board weighs in on BID, tax limit Says it wants to correct the record As many are aware, the Village Board has been asked to consider enabling legislation that would allow the creation of a Business Improvement District BID to manage and promote our downtown.
If created, the BID would be funded by a tax levy that would be limited to the businesses within the boundaries of that district.
