Taxi Items Dropped from June 21, 2011 SFMTA Board Meeting
Notice from Taxi Services:
"This is to let you know that environmental review of the proposed issuance of new medallions will not be complete in time for the June 21, 2011 SFMTA Board of Directors meeting. Accordingly, all taxi-related items, including the flag drop fare increase and the proposed issuance of new permits, will be pulled off of the agenda of the meeting of the SFMTA Board of Directors on June 21st, and will be rescheduled to a later meeting. The Board will not calendar the item before environmental review on the proposed issuance of new medallions is complete. Therefore, I can’t inform you at this time whether these taxi-related items, including the flag drop fare increase and the proposed issuance of new permits, will be heard at the specially scheduled Board meeting of June 28, or whether it will have to wait until the following meeting, scheduled for August 2, 2011. I will send notice to this list as soon as I have updated information on when these items will be heard by the Board."
Perhaps Councilor Carl Macmurdo and driver Peter Witt suspected that something like this might happen when I shot them at the June 13th Taxi Advisory Council meeting.
