By Strathcona Merchants, for Strathcona Merchants

The Strathcona Business Improvement Association (SBIA) is proposing to renew its BIA mandate as required at the end of its current term. Many Strathcona businesses agree that it is time for a fresh approach to representing the business owners in Strathcona. An approach that that leaves the Directors political agenda at the door when they arrive to work to get paid on our dime.  If one-half of the assessed owners, representing more than one-half of the value according to the last real-property assessment roll, to object to the BIA renewal initiative in writing, then it is Council’s policy to consider rejection of the BIA initiative if 1/3 or more of the property owners or business tenants register objections.
