George Jacobs of Windy City Limousine is upset because the town of Oak Brook, Ill. wants to charge his company a separate license to do business there. He should be upset. If anyone is up for the fight, it is George.
But this is a lesson to all operators to be vigilant on regulatory issues. Don’t wait until you start getting tickets to know the laws in all of the little towns around you. Work with your state legislatures to stop this from ever occurring. As small municipalities are looking for revenue streams, we truly do not want it to be on our backs.
My late friend and fellow operator, Carla Boroday, used to joke that Lincoln was building special larger windshields for the operators in Florida so that they would have room to put all of the permit stickers. Although the joke was funny, the reality of it is not. In Florida, counties, cities, airports and ports all require their own permits. It is not unusual for a company to service three airports and two ports. Additionally, chauffeurs need multiple licenses from each port and airport and county. Imagine how hard it will be to hire chauffeurs if they have to bear the expense of all of the licenses.
If you have successfully fought this kind of thing in your area, let us know and also let know how you succeeded so that it is out there for others who also may be experiencing it.
