Taxi companies lobbying councilmen for rate hike
Published: March 22,2012
JACKSON — The Jackson City Council has scheduled a public hearing on whether taxicab fares should be increased by $1 per mile.
The Clarion-Ledger reports taxicab companies have lobbied the council in recent months for the hike. They say higher gas prices make it difficult to operate at the current $2 per mile allowed by city law.
The hearing is set for tonight at Jackson City Hall.
