§ 9-112-150

License fees and terms

a.

As of the effective date of this ordinance, the licensing term for licenses will be from March 1 of the current year to the last day of February of the subsequent year.

i.

One-year taxicab medallion licensing issuance or renewal fee for taxicabs that are not wheelchair accessible is $600.00.  The Department will deposit $100.00 of this licensing fee to a fund created to promote accessibility of taxicabs and transportation network vehicles, also known as the “Accessibility Fund.”

ii.

One-year taxicab medallion licensing issuance or renewal fee for wheelchair accessible taxicabs is $500.00.  The license must be attached to a wheelchair accessible taxicab vehicle during the entire licensing term.

b.

Effective March 1, 2013, the City will initiate a two-year licensing term for licenses issued pursuant to this chapter.  The licensing term shall be from March 1 of the current year to the last day of February two years subsequent to the current year.

i.

Two-year licensing issuance or renewal fee is $1,200.00 for taxicabs that are not wheelchair accessible.  The Department will deposit $200.00 of this licensing fee to a fund created to promote accessibility of taxicabs and transportation network vehicles, also known as the “Accessibility Fund.”

ii.

Two-year taxicab medallion licensing issuance or renewal fee for wheelchair accessible taxicabs is $1,000.00.  The license must be attached to a wheelchair accessible taxicab vehicle during the entire licensing term.

The city will assign the two-year licensing term in order to stagger license renewals by fifty percent of licenses in one year, and the other fifty percent of licenses in the following year.

All odd numbered licenses expire on the last day of February in odd numbered years, while all even numbered licenses expire on the last day of February in even numbered years.

In order to phase in the two-year licensing term, on March 1, 2013, the City will assign a two-year term to all odd numbered licenses and will assign a one-year term to all even numbered licenses.  On March 1, 2014, the City will assign a two-year term to all even numbered licenses.  Effective March 1, 2014, the one- year licensing term will be terminated.

c.

A license fee shall be paid in advance of the issuance of a license.  A licensee must renew and pay for the medallion license before the expiration date of the licensing term.  Any taxicab medallion licensing fee paid on or after the first day of the licensing term is considered a late payment, and is subject to late payment fees, interest accrued as specified in the Code, and promulgated in the rules by the commissioner.

d.

A license not renewed in a timely manner is considered lapsed, and the taxicab vehicle operating under this lapsed license shall be considered an unlicensed taxicab subject to revocation.

e.

Nothing in this section shall affect the right of the city to impose or collect a vehicle tax and any occupational tax, as permitted by law, in addition to the license fee herein provided.

f.

The fees specified in this section shall be in addition to any amounts payable pursuant to the competitive bidding process.

g.

The commissioner is authorized to adopt rules and regulations for the administration of the Wheelchair Accessible Taxicab Fund.
