City Council delays appointing taxi board
The Fredericksburg City Council delayed appointing the first taxi board.
The council had been scheduled to appoint the board at Tuesday night’s meeting. However, Councilman Fred Howe, the person who led the effort to create the board, said council needed time to evaluate the names submitted thus far as candidates for the board.
The board is to be made up of eight people including one from the Rappahannock Area Agency on Aging, two who represent taxi dispatch companies, and one each to represent taxi owners, taxi operators, taxi customers, City Council and a representative from Mary Washington Hospital or another contractor for taxi services.
One of the first tasks of the board will be to advise the council on whether it recommends meters be required for all taxis serving customers in the city.
