Lengthy discussion on better clarification and to simplify the
monthly submitted financial reports.
Much discussion on the city's newly required billing process on how
to receive the monthly BID assessment funds. The process has been an
arduous time consuming task on many people's part, including city
staff, the BID CPA, Volunteer's and BID Staff. Up until this time
the process still has not had been clarified, however we have been
