Top councillors haven chosen to give their support to Boston BID – as the body seeks re-election for another five years.

Boston Borough Council’s cabinet opted to use its 17 votes in favour of the BID at its meeting this morning.

The council is able to cast votes as a business in the town but members faced opposition from councillors who believe that traders should be allowed to chose for themselves.

Coun Mike Gilbert said the BID is the ‘icing on the cake’ by offering extra services for businesses in Boston but councillors Carol Taylor and Paul Gleeson criticised the business plan put forward by BID.
