Houston Holds Off License Fee Increase

Posted on April 9, 2002 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

When the Houston City Council proposed doubling the license fees for taxis and limou-sines, the Limousine Associa-tion of Houston sprang into ac-tion.

Immediately, the association requested meetings with the council and corresponded with the committee chairperson, ex-pressing the desire to keep the fees at the current level.

?We provided a comparison of fees between what Houston sets as a fee schedule compared with other cities? fees,? said David Schovajsa, president of the Limousine Association of Houston. (pick up photo March page 56) ?Of the fees that we presented, Houston is second only to New York City.?

At a recent Houston City Council Fiscal Affairs Com-mittee meeting, councilmem-bers agreed that the already-high fees should not be doubled.

?They haven?t agreed to not raise the rates at all, just that it would not be advisable to dou-ble them at this time,? Schova-jsa said. ?We felt that with the support of several councilmem-bers, the proposal would not gain enough support to make it to a formal proposal for full council consideration. It?s a lit-tle better than being in limbo. They could still pursue it, but our indication is that they likely will not. We?re continuing to monitor it.?
