"A 'Yes' vote in the upcoming BID Ballot is a vote to enable the good work to continue and for the BID to develop and expand the services provided to help our businesses succeed. Please could all BID Levy Payers return their ballot papers, as without your vote the BID could end and all the good work could end along with it."
