NEW YORK — The New York City Council is expected to vote next week on whether to allow the Fashion Center Business Improvement District, along with the city’s 19 other BIDs, to raise its budget. The increase would allow the FCBID to go ahead with its plan to offer seven-day-a-week security services, up from its current five-day schedule.
The council’s finance committee Thursday approved the BID proposals to increase their budgets. BIDs are not financed by the city, but by an assessment paid by landlords. With the increased budget, the stipend paid by landlords and property owners would be raised. The city approves and collects the assessments, which are not voluntary.
