Greta Utecht, Planning and <br /> Development Department, gave the staff report. She said that staff from <br /> e Eugene and Springfield have been working jointly on a proposal for a metro- <br /> wide regulation system for public passenger vehicles, including taxicabs, <br /> limousines, airport shuttles, and horse-drawn vehicles. Under the proposal, <br /> companies would require a business license, vehicles would require a permit, <br /> and drivers would require certification.

Staff recommends this provision in order to stabi- <br /> lize the industry, maintain more control over administration and enforcement <br /> costs, and provide safer conditions for customers. <br /> Ms. Utecht said that two forums with industry members have been held on this <br /> issue. Most of the concerns raised have centered around the proposed fees, <br /> new insurance requirements, and required vehicle inspections. Proposed fees <br /> for vehicles and businesses are set at 100 percent of the costs for issuance <br /> and administration; proposed fees for drivers are set at 58 percent of the <br /> cost.
