City Council to discuss finances, cab regulations at special meeting

RICHMOND, Va (WRIC) — Richmond City Council will hold a special meeting Monday at 5 p.m. in the 2nd-floor Council Chamber at City Hall. One of the items on the agenda concerns the regulation of taxicabs in the city.

The ordinance calls for Council to repeal a city code requiring holders of Certificates of Public Convenience and Necessity to have a telephone listing. The ordinance is designed for the purpose of implementing recommendations by the Capital Region Taxicab Advisory Board.

Another item being addressed is a measure that would require the city’s chief accounting officer to submit monthly financial reports to Council, potentially helping the Council more effectively track its finances.

8News will have updates on the outcome of the meeting.
