Body
The proposed resolution approves the 2021 Operating Plan for Madison’s Central Business Improvement District (BID).

The BID is not budgeting additional outside revenues at this time for 2021. No City appropriation is required.

Wisconsin State Statute 66.1109, often referred to as the "BID Law," authorizes cities to create Business Improvement Districts "to allow businesses within those districts to develop, to manage, and to promote the districts and to establish an assessment method to fund these activities."

Under 1999 Wisconsin State Statute 66.608, the City of Madison on December 7, 1999 created Madison Business Improvement District #1, known as Madison’s Central Business Improvement District, and adopted its initial operating plan.

Madison’s Central Business Improvement District (BID) is governed by a Board of Directors, who are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Common Council.
