For the last three years the Business Improvement District (BID), with the Chamber of Commerce, has employed a Chrysalis Clean Team to sweep sidewalks and empty trash cans in the Palisades business district.
In an effort to be community oriented and neighborly, the Chamber also emptied trash cans at the Palisades Library, the Palisades High School perimeter, Marquez Business District and on the Village Green.
Unfortunately, because of the laws governing BIDs, our BID is not allowed to offer services outside its specific defined area (Visit: palisadesbid.org). Therefore, the BID must cease collecting trash in areas that are not within its perimeter.
This became effective January 1, so if you see trash piling up at certain locations, this is why. Much as the BID would like to continue to serve a greater portion of the Palisades, the mandate under which it was established will not permit it to do so.
The BID Board.
