It's just getting started.

Public input is done. They will go to 4:45PM, take a 15 minute break, return at 5:01PM for a scheduled budget hearing.

Once the budget hearing is completed, they will resume the public hearing.

Voted unanimously - airport allowance through geofencing (with Uber agreement with FLL for the first 6 months $4.50 a pick up only). Other methods - avi, sunpass.

Ace Richards, are you still reading? Can you explain why BC is making this soooo difficult for uber and prolonging the inevitable?

Now, PBC won't know what to do in their meeting this month.

PBC will wait again, and will postpone their hearing until the next next month as they did in August.

I don't know what Palm Beach County is going to do. If they want Uber to stay they should just pass the Tallahassee ordinance that Uber has already said they would accept. If they don't they may loose Uber and Lyft also. Unless they can extend this temporary working agreement that they have been using to try to avoid Broward Co. fate.

Right. Smart move. Palm Beach comission is much smarter than Broward. At least they saved Uber for it's citizens, saved lots of Uber driver jobs, and spared themselves the massive blow back from the people who all want to keep Uber and Lyft. Broward drove everyone out by passing a horrible ordinance and telling it's lawyers to prepare lawsuits against TNC's that didn't comply. So underdtandably Uber and Lyft left the county. Now after public erupted in outrage against commission and taxi monopoly they spend half a meeting a month pretending to be crafting a Uber friendly ordinance. Never going to happen. Broward could have Uber back by letting Uber and Lyft work under a temporary operating agreement that is the same as Palm Beach County. But the Commission is controlled by a very strong taxi monopoly in Broward who has been contributing to them for 50 + years. The commission is just playing a game with the public to make it look like they are trying to get Uber back, it won't ever happen until enough commissioners are voted out of office, or the state mandates what TNCs must do. Which probably won't happen anytime soon, uber has been trying for that, on a state wide level for a couple years now, without success.
