DeKalb proposal worries livery companies
DeKALB – Two DeKalb-based limousine companies are concerned that the city’s proposed ordinances on livery will increase the cost of doing business here.
“It’s not right. We’re already double-taxed,” said Paul Uplinger, co-owner of Blue Sky Limousine, in regard to how limo companies are regulated by both the state and the City of Chicago. “I really don’t know what the city of DeKalb wants to do.”
Under a proposed ordinance that could be voted on by the City Council at its July 23 meeting, limo services would be regulated in the same manner as taxicab companies. Some of those regulations include being licensed by the city, being required to carry
at least $500,000 in insurance, and maintaining a record of their customers that the city can inspect.
