City Boards and Commissions

The Czech Village – New Bohemia Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District (CVNB SSMID) utilizes a financing mechanism to fund district-specific improvements, amenities, and services to supplement existing municipal services. It was approved in 2016, organized in 2017, and is up for renewal in 2022.  A designated SSMID is able to levy taxes on commercial and industrial properties within the district boundary and is self-imposed and self-governing. Non-commercial, non-industrial properties are exempt from paying the assessment. These properties can voluntarily contribute to the SSMID funds or can volunteer to be assessed.
