GOING, GOING, GONE ELECTION 'KILLS' ST. ARMANDS DISTRICT By Stan Zimmerman City Editor Ten years of good deeds came to an end Wednesday, April 3. By a substantial 65 percent to 35 percent margin, the property owners of St. Armands Circle voted to discontinue their Business Improvement District (BID). The district levied a two-mill tax on property, raising about $220,000 per year. The money was used to beautify the shopping mecca, promote it as a destination and leverage partnerships with other entities. Shoppers and diners enjoy a sunny morning on St. Armands.
