I read with great interest what is happening with the downtown BIA in Kemptville.
Correct me if I am wrong, but all money collected for the BIA is coming from the levy they collect through the businesses.
Correct me if I am wrong, the municipality does not give the BIA a single penny from the municipal taxes collected, to the BIA.
Correct me if I am wrong, but the BIA is an organization which has its members elected among the participating businesses.
Correct me if I am wrong, the board members decide by themselves what to do and how to spend their budget.
Can someone explain me why the municipality decided to cut the BIA Executive Director to a minimum wage job?
Can someone explain to me why the municipality puts its nose in the BIA business and acts as a dictator?
Maybe the downtown core of Kemptville is lively enough and does not need any more stimulation?
Maybe we should pay all council members, mayor, municipality employees to the minimum wage as well…. There are some savings to do there.
