Background and Analysis:

Per the PBIA Bylaws, each year the PBIA hosts an annual ratepayer meeting. This is typically a 2-hour event with food and information sharing where ratepayers can network and mingle at a specified location in downtown.


At the last PBIA Board meeting the Board decided the annual ratepayer meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 1 from 6:00-8:00 pm.


Staff is researching various downtown venues and will provide more information to the Board at the meeting so a venue can be selected. The event will be catered and the menu will depend on the selected venue. Staff will work with the Chair and Vice Chair to pin down a menu for the event.


The focus of this event will be a networking opportunity, since it has been a while since ratepayers have had the opportunity to mingle in person due to COVID. In addition, Chair Hammond and Vice Chair David will provide a brief overview of PBIA 2022 and 2023 projects to the attendees.
