Title
An Ordinance to Amend Section 1:207, Taxicab Board, of Chapter 8, Organization of Boards and Commissions of Title I of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Ordinance No. ORD-14-27)
Memorandum
Your approval is requested to amend Section 1:207, Taxicab Board, of Chapter 8 of Boards and Commission of Title I of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor.

Currently, the Chief Financial Officer is a non-voting member of the Taxicab Board and acts as the administrator and secretary of the Board. The ordinance change will direct responsibility of this position to a City Administrator's designee (anticipated to be the City Clerk).

The City Clerk, at present, is responsible for issuing taxicab licenses, taxicab driver's licenses, company licenses, and bond plates. The resulting language would allow all taxicab board activities to be supported by the same staff. The ordinance change is consistent with other City Clerk's in many Michigan municipalities.

In addition, the reference to expiration of members terms in subsection 2 has been deleted. Deletion of the language removes its inconsistency with Section 12.5(a) of the City Charter.

Approval of this ordinance amendment is recommended.
