Memorandum
The Taxicab Board directed the taxicab administrator to address a number of issues brought to the Board by taxicab companies and citizens complaints which included licensing, professional conduct and solicitation of passengers. These issues brought about needed changes to the Taxicab Ordinance to clarify how taxicab drivers and vehicles should operate in the City of Ann Arbor.

The Taxicab Board met on June 23, 2011 and recommended approval of this Ordinance and again on August 25, 2011 to approve an amended change.
