The Business Improvement District will finally have its day in council. The Alexandria City Council approved a June 24 public hearing to include discussion of whether or not the council should approve a special service district for the BID. This would define the boundaries of the BID but would not establish the tax to fund it. The meeting is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. and will allow public comment.
At the docketing approval on June 13, council members expressed reservations about the proposed tax. Mayor Allison Silberberg and others on the council said the majority of the feedback they’d heard regarding the BID was very negative.
