🍻 Motion Ratification – Retail Patio Support Program

2023_05_25 BIA Motion #1:


  • To support the retail sector as part of the patio program to cover the 1st year's administration fee to the City of Barrie of $400 per retailer in order to implement a patio on the sidewalk in front of the store. This would make the program free of cost for the retailers. The second year the retailers would cover the costs (admin fee + lease fee) ongoing.


  • Allocation of up to $4000 which would allow 10 retailers to participate. If we get more BIA staff will notify the Board for further approval. This budget will come from the surplus funds.


  • Moved by Director Chris Gerrard

  • Seconded by Vice Chair Steve Ricalis

  • Vote: 7 in favour, Majority Approved
