("PDMA") is dedicated to the continuance of the innovative delivery of public services it has provided and to continue promoting activities to attract shoppers, clients, investors and businesses to the District, as well as supporting projects designed to stimulate economic growth and community well-being.
About the BIDThe Patchogue Village Business Improvement District, or BID for short, was formed and incorporated in January 1992, by a group of concerned business people whose idea it was to improve the safety, appearance and general well being of Patchogue Village. All BID Board members are local merchants, professionals and building or business owners who volunteer their services to the Business Improvement District. There are currently thirteen board members including four officers, with ten members being elected bi-annually on a rotating basis, and three members being appointed by village government. There is a part time paid position of Executive Director, who serves as the day to day “hands on” person or liaison with the various entities throughout the village.
The Business Improvement District derives its income from or existence by assessing through the village a modest tax on all commercial establishments within the parameters of the Village of Patchogue. The BID works an approximate $160,000 annual budget. The members of the Board of Directors have to have a majority vote to approve a yearly budget, conduct BID business and authorize expenditures for new projects. Ahh, but how are the monies spent? It has always been the objective of the BID to provide public services to the business community to promote a safe, clean, attractive environment, and to promote activities conducive to attracting shoppers, clients, businesses and investors to Patchogue, stimulating economic growth and community well being.
