(Northampton, MA) – Fees for the Northampton Business Improvement District are about to drop by 50 percent. The Northampton City Council last night took a second and final vote to reduce the B.I.D. fees by half after City Attorney Jack Fitzgibbon assured the council that the vote would not be impacted by an upcoming lawsuit challenging the establishment of that organization. B.I.D opponents last month urged the council to delay any vote on the fee changes until the completion of two separate lawsuits, one of which challenges the state law allowing the establishment of such districts.
