City Council Adopts BID Resolution

City Council Adopts BID Resolution

With little discussion Monday night, the Mitchell City Council adopted a resolution that would create a business improvement district, or BID, which would consist of a one dollar tax on all of Mitchell’s occupied hotel rooms.  The BID, which is expected to raise about 170,000 dollars annually, would help finance a second sheet of ice at the Mitchell Activities Center and would fund a local sports authority to help attract sporting events to Mitchell.  The sports authority will work to attract sporting events to Mitchell with a focus on multi-day events which would require an overnight stay in town.  A hearing will be held at the July 1 council meeting to allow opposing testimony from the affected business owners.  The BID would then be voted on by the council, and if passed, a start date would be established.
