Title of Agenda Item: Public Hearing: Revision of the Taxi Ordinance.  

Council Goal: Govern with Quality, Responsiveness, Efficiency

Background: Council received a petition from Mary Cooper, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Student Body President, on October 10, 2011 in which she expressed an interest in the creation of a flat rate for taxis within the town limits of Chapel Hill. Ms. Cooper suggested that such a regulation would provide a reliable, safe, and consistent way for students to get home, and would be accessible to everyone. Ms. Cooper also noted that taxi fares are not currently regulated by the Town and are inconsistent.

Staff has been working with stakeholders to revise the existing ordinance to reflect current needs.

Fiscal Note: No fiscal impact has been identified.

Recommendations: That the council receive comments from public and then provide staff with direction in revising the taxi ordinance.
