Title
An Ordinance to Discontinue the Taxicab Board and Establish a Transportation Commission by Repealing and Replacing Section 1:207 of Chapter 8 of Title I and Amending Chapter 85 of Title VII of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Ordinance No. ORD-16-26)
Memorandum
City staff and the Taxicab Board have considered subsuming the role of the Taxicab Board into a Transportation Commission that would advise on broader transportation matters in addition to handling the duties of the Taxicab Board under Chapter 85 (Taxicabs) of the Code.

This ordinance does so by creating a Transportation Commission and discontinuing the Taxicab Board. Chapter 85 is amended to reflect that the Transportation Commission will handle the duties of the former Taxicab Board. The Chapter 85 amendments also include a number of technical and formatting changes and corrections that do not change the substance of the chapter.
