Catskill board rejects increase in taxi fees

Susan Campriello of The Daily Mail reports:

The Catskill Village Board voted unanimously Monday evening not to raise the fees local cab companies and drivers must pay to operate within the Village. The rates will remain at $100 per car and $50 per driver. The vote was held immediately after an hour-long public hearing on a proposal that would have increased the fees to $200 annually during which cab dispatchers and drivers as well as residents who do and do not use taxis questioned the Village’s motives for the change and implored the board not to approve the measure as written.

Village President Vincent Seeley proposed the increase a few weeks ago, but ended up voting against the measure. Village of Catskill elections are next week.
