To whom it concerns,
I hope you might forward this to any of your members who operate in the Dublin 1 or 2 areas.
For many businesses in this area, there is a legal obligation to pay an annual levy to a private company called Dublin Town (also known as Dublin City BID) . This levy works out at 5.5% of their rates bill. There is a plebiscite under way at the moment to decide whether to renew or withdraw the mandate from Dublin Town. Ballot papers will be arriving soon or may have already arrived. We are encouraging a NO vote, we believe this organisation to be undemocratic and ineffectual. Please call me if you would like any more information,
