BY DEE WORD
There are thing’s happening in the downtown the people of Crescent City should know about.
The BID Board is being very childish. If the downtown businesses don’t play by their rules we can’t play with their toys. Grow up! The Christmas parade and lighting of the tree is not about BID or the downtown businesses; its about the children and the citizens of Crescent City. So because some of the downtown businesses didn’t pay their assessments that were voluntary the parade got cancelled. The downtown merchants decided not to let that happen because of the children. Apparently, the BID Board forgot that past assessments were used to purchase the tree and Santa House. Now, the BID Board won’t let them use the tree or the Santa House. This is unbelievable!
Then there is Ron Gastineau. You sir are a council member and are supposed to be for the people but when asked to use your sound system for the good of the parade you said, “No, because downtown businesses were anti BID”. As a City Council member I would think that wouldn’t even be an issue because you sir are not a BID member or on the BID board. You don’t even own a business. So are you for the people or for BID, because if you’re not for the people then you need to step down from the City Council!
So BID Board Members and Ron Gastineau… you need to grow up.
