Gottago Taxi packing them in
The Amherst Select Board on Monday night will consider a "Recommendation to NOT approve a taxi license -- GottaGo taxi." But fear not, 15 minutes later they will vote on a "New Taxi Business License Application: Funky Cab."
So the net number of taxi cab companies licensed to do business in the town of Amherst will in all likelihood remain the same (9).
The Selectboard renewed all the taxi licenses back in December, but that was "subject to outstanding documentation" including the positive recommendation of Police Chief Scott Livingstone. GottaGo Taxi was the only company he did not recommend.
The Chief's memo will appear in the Selectboard packet tomorrow, but until then this incident should provide a little background. The owner will have the right to respond to the Chief's recommendation (or lack thereof) at the Monday night Select Board meeting.
He may not want to drive one of his cabs to the meeting.
