The first meeting of the new Downtown Business Improvement District (BID) board is expected to be next month.
River City Company officials said, "Right now, we are still on track to have the board in place and hopefully a first meeting in October."
The nomination form was open through Sept. 16. The full slate of possible BID board candidates was not known until the next day.
Officials said, "When all the BID board members are confirmed by the nominating committee, we will hopefully be able to share both the board members and the date of the first meeting all at the same time."
Property owners within the district are to be assessed a total of around $1 million for the first year's budget.
It will pay for special services over and above that provided by the city.
Several property owners opposed to setting up the district filed suit, and it is still pending in Chancery Court. The case is before Chancellor Jeff Atherton.
The assessment notices will be sent out by the city treasurer's office.
