Here’s a link to the Article as it will appear on the Ballot:
What it means: This article would reduce by half certain insurance required to be carried by Taxi drivers who operate in the Town of Hampton.
No one spoke either for or against this Article at Deliberative Session, but In The Know Hampton subsequently received further information about why this was being proposed. Since the Taxi Ordinance was passed several years ago with the higher premium requirements, only one or two applications have been received for taxis to operate in town – possibly because of the increased cost of the insurance. This Article attempts to maintain the availability of taxi service for those who need transportation by making it more affordable for taxis to operate in the town.
Fiscal Impact: No tax impact.
