As this is municipal election year, it is also time for election to the BIA Board of Directors. The election will take place at the Annual General Meeting to be held on Monday, December 3rd 2018 at 6.30p.m. at the Hampton Inn. See elsewhere in the website for details of the election process and a nomination form. All members of the BIA are eligible for election and must be nominated by two other members. The Board consists of up to eight members of the BIA as well as the area and regional councilors for the Bolton ward. The Board will be elected for a four year term which coincides with the term of Council.
Watch the downtown for the beautiful new Christmas decorations being arranged by your BIA.
Farmers’ Markets and Special Event Days
As promised the Farmers’ Market moved to a new location at the Royal Courtyards. This location offered increased visibility and room for expansion. As well the musicians and other attractions for the four special event days were able to be closer to the market. I believe that the change has been a great success and has been appreciated by vendors and customers alike. I hope that the Market will continue to expand to its full potential in future years.
In closing, I encourage all BIA members to become involved in running the BIA, whether as a Board member, volunteer or attending meetings. The BIA is spending your tax dollars and you deserve a say in how this is to be done.
