Perry officials are looking to boost business.
A proposal that goes before City Council Monday suggests an additional tax to commercial properties along General Courtney Hodges Boulevard to fund community projects.
Economic Development Director, Robert Smith, says to enhance economic growth and improve the look of the city, one option would be to make the area a "Community Improvement District."
"The commercial property owners come together to fund projects in the district," explains Smith.
If approved, it would give an additional property tax to businesses along that street.
The money then goes to improvements in that area, which would decided by the people that work there, not the city.
"It's separate from the city. The city isn't going to be dictating what projects have to be done," he says.
