Description

The Times examines the Westbury Business Improvement District, a partnership formed among local business owners to foster improvements and lure businesses to the Village. The partnership was funded by imposing an additional property tax on current business owners. Half a decade later, however, progress is still lagging. The Times' investigation finds a lack of governmental oversight over the organization and a legal misdirection of taxpayer funds.
