Councillors have unanimously voted to back Aberdeen Inspired’s ballot for five years with investment of £45,000.
Aberdeen Inspired is the banner under which the Aberdeen BID (Business Improvement District) operates and works on projects to improve the city centre’s image.
Gary Craig, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “As our renewal ballot enters its final two week notice, we’re delighted that Aberdeen City Council has confirmed its support for us to return for another five-year term.
“Aberdeen City Council is our biggest levy payer and although we are not part of the council, it remains a strong partner for many of our projects.
“Most recently, we’ve also worked with the local authority to deliver the successful Aberdeen Christmas Village.
“It attracted more than 500,000 people and we would be looking to build on this with them for 2016 and further afield.
“We are aiming to invest a minimum of £6.5million in Aberdeen’s city centre, should we return for a further five years, and we are encouraging our loyal levy payers to vote ‘Yes’ in order to help make this a reality.”
A renewal ballot opened on February 4 and will run until March 17, with levy payers invited to vote on whether the organisation returns for a second five-year term.
Finance convener Willie Young said: “I think the vote shows how happy people are with their work.”
