The City Council will vote Tuesday night to restart the process of setting up a Business Improvement District (BID) in downtown Chattanooga.
If the vote passes, it would set up a public hearing and final vote on July 23.
Council members Erskine Oglesby, Anthony Byrd and Jerry Mitchell are sponsoring the resolution.
In a raucous meeting last Tuesday night, there were numerous amendments offered to the BID proposal championed by the River City Company. Finally, Councilman Byrd made a motion to approve, but there was no second.
In a BID, district property owners pay annual assessment to cover the costs of special services, such as litter pickup, graffiti removal and safety.
It would be operated by a nine-member BID board, with the City Council approving the first board.
Assessments would be made along with tax bills on property owners within a district. The BID would have a $1 million annual budget.
