Administrative Services Committee Meeting (ASC)
Monday, June 19, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Town Hall, Oakville and Trafalgar Rooms
The Town of Oakville is changing its Licensing By-law 2015-075 with respect to taxicab regulations.
Public consultation was held in 2016 as part of the town’s Taxicab By-law Review and in December 2016, Town Council passed a resolution directing staff to report back in summer 2017 with initial changes to the taxicab by-law that could be implemented quickly to provide fair and balanced treatment of the ride selling market (interim taxi by-law). These recommended changes are going to ASC on June 19. The decision of the ASC will be forwarded to Council on June 26 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chamber.
Both meetings are open to the public.
Licensing By-law 2015-075 allows the town to license and regulate various businesses in Oakville.
The town is reviewing taxicab regulations to ensure they continue to meet the needs of the community. The review will be completed and presented to council in 2018.
