Businesses to continue paying levy

LISMORE'S "Come to the Heart" marketing program appears secure for another five years after a random sampling of Lismore businesses voted overwhelmingly to continue the levy that funds 30% of it.

A group of 31 business people met today at Lismore City Council chambers for a workshop about the program, after which they voted.

The final tally was 29-2 in favour of the extension of the annual $106,500 levy.

The proposal will now be put before council and an application subsequently made to the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal.

Should it be successful, the levy will be continued for another 5 years.
