WHY THE FEE?
Businesses located between 70th and 76th and Greenfield are automatically BID Members, which means they pay a special property tax which pays for our Organization's services. The annual fee of $300 allows businesses not in our BID District to receive the same marketing and promotion benefits as our members.
WHO CAN BE A FRIEND?
Any business can be a Friend of West Allis Downtown! We have members from all kinds of business types and cities!
I'M ALREADY A FRIEND, BUT HAVEN'T BEEN INVOICED FOR 2020. WHY?
Because of Covid 19 and the struggles it has caused businesses, we are not charging any of our former members for this year. We will start invoicing again in January of 2021.
Members who signed up and paid for 2020 will not be invoiced again until January of 2022.
