Public Comment:

There was no one present or on the phone to speak for public participation.

Determination to be made by the Public Licensing Board, which consists of Mayor and the City Council, as to whether there is a need and that the new owner will operate a safe and properly insured Taxi service.  Application on file for Tacone Transport LLC, doing business as Tacone Transport LLC. 

Andrea Dykman and Tabitha Gordan would like to start a new taxi service in Lincoln.  They would also like to have non-emergency transportation as well.  They have a handicap accessible vehicle that they will transport within Logan County.

Andrea and Tabitha have been told from family and friends that they would like to have another option in taxi services.  They plan to operate a safe and clean option for transportation.  There have been incidences where handicap people have had to wait weeks for appointments because there isn’t adequate transportation for them. 

Their planned hours of operation will be…

Mon – Thurs, 5am to 11pm

Friday, 5am to 3am (Saturday Morning)

Saturday, 5:30am to 3am (Sunday Morning) 

Currently they have 2 standard cars, 2 vans and one handicapped vehicle in their fleet.

Their proof of financial responsibility and insurance is in their application packet. 




Aldermen Hoinacki made the motion to adjourn, Alderman Keller seconded.  Acting Mayor Welch adjourned the meeting at 7:14 pm. 



Respectfully Submitted By:

Charity Hutchison, Recording Secretary
