THEIR EMOTION REGARDING REGARDING APPROVAL. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR. OCEAN PASSES. WE HAVE TWO PUBLIC HEARINGS TODAY. THE FIRST IS A REVIEW OF A REQUEST FOR A TAXI CAMP FARE INCREASE THIS FIELD. MAKING A REQUEST FOR, UM. INCREASED FAIR THE LAST TIME THERE WAS A GENERAL INCREASE OF AFFAIRS FOR THE TAXI CABS AND NATIONALS, 4000 AND THREE THERE WAS A THERE WAS A SMALL FUEL. INCREASE IN THAT A YEAR OR TWO LATER, BUT THEN THAT WAS ONLY FOR A SHORT OF TIE MAKING A REQUEST.

UH THEIR PROPOSALS IN YOUR PACKAGE, AND MANY REPRESENTATIVES ARE HERE TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO YOU ABOUT. YOU DO HAVE THE AUTHORITY BY RULE TO ESTABLISH THE FACE. UM AT THIS POINT IN TIME, WE WILL OPEN. PUBLIC HEARING TO HEAR FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC. DO WE HAVE. THEY'RE HERE, BUT I HAVE TO ASK HIM TO START ALL RIGHT. SO IF YOU'LL PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU'D LIKE TO SPEAK ON THE ISSUE. CREASING. THE TAXI FARE. PLEASE COME FORWARD. PRODUCE YOURSELF. THANK YOU. THE PROPOSAL ALSO AND IF YOU GUYS IF YOU DON'T MIND. WE ACTUALLY HAVE YEAH, BUT IF YOU WANNA GO AND GIVE IT TO HIM AS. YOU DO? AND TODAY AND I'M HERE FOR I. WE DO THE TRANSPORTATION OVER ACTUALLY MYSELF. I'VE BEEN LEAVING SOME YEARS. SO. WE'RE TRYING TO GET BUSINESS BETTER AND TRANSPORTATION BETTER FOR BOTH SIDE WITH THIS CAB DRIVER'S CAB BUSINESS AND CUSTOMERS.

DAY UH, WE DO HAVE A LOT OF ISSUES AND WAKING UP OR CUSTOMERS. AND THE REASON BECAUSE OF OVER AND LEFT. THEY HAVE A SEARCH CHURCH AND THEY TOLD PEOPLE WHAT DOES CRAZY AMOUNT OF MONEY. OR DRIVERS WHO ARE NOT ABLE TO PICK UP OUR CUSTOMERS. AND BECAUSE OUTSIDE OF DOWNTOWN AS HARD TO BE PICKING UP BUSINESS, BECAUSE IT'S NOT WORTH IT FOR THEM. TO GO OVER, FOR EXAMPLE, RAILROAD, THE NIAGARA APOLOGY AREA. OVER THERE, STUCK IN TRAFFIC FOR OVER HALF AN HOUR AND HAVE. PICKING UP $10 FARE AND THE CUSTOMERS AS CUSTOMERS. IT DOESN'T MATTER.

EITHER WAY, WE HAVE TO PICK IT UP THIS CUSTOMERS. BUT THE DRIVERS, IT'S NOT ABLE TO GET THERE BECAUSE OF IT DEPENDS DOLLARS OR $15. SO. WE TRY. WE HAVE A COMPETITION. IT'S EVERYWHERE. IT'S I MEAN IT'S BURST THOSE DAYS MARKET CRAZY GOING OFF EVERYTHING. I MEAN, WE CANNOT JUST TALKING ABOUT THE GAS PRICE ABOUT THE. UH GROCERY STORE ABOUT THE MORTGAGES ABOUT TAXES. SO TODAY WE'RE ASKING IF WE GET THIS OFFER TO THE INCREASED THIS ME THAT THAT WILL HELP US. WE CAN PICK UP TAKE CARE OF THE BUSINESS MORE THAN WHAT WE CAN. WHETHER WE DO RIGHT NOW. THANK YOU SO MUCH. HERE ANYONE ELSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THE ISSUE OF INCREASING FARES? SOME OF THEM. PROBABLY THERE WAS NOT ABLE TO MAKE IT BUT WE DO HAVE A THEIR SIGNATURE. YES WE DO HAVE SOME LETTERS HERE, SO PACK IT. THERE WAS CIRCULATION. COMMISSIONERS. DO WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? THANK YOU SO MUCH.

THANK YOU, SIR. THANK. POINT IN TIME, WE'LL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING ON THE QUEST. TO PRIEST THE TAXI CAB FARE SO THE COMMISSIONERS CAN DECIDE. THE ISSUE. SO UNDER THE RULE. LIKE. WE AS A COMMISSION MUST APPROVE ANY REQUEST. PROPOSED FARE INCREASES. UH IT'S UNDER OUR TLC RULES. RULE NUMBER FOUR. CURRENT GROUP RATES ARE AND WHAT THEY'RE ASKING. IT'S REASONABLY STRAIGHTFORWARD. THE CURRENT RATE IS A $3 METER POLE. THAT WAS WHEN YOU GET THE CABBAGE THREE AND THEN THEY CHARGED 20 CENTS 1/10, WHICH ENDS UP BEING $2 PER MONTH. FLAT RATE FROM DOWNTOWN TO OPRYLAND, AND THE TRIANGLE IS AS WE CALL IT.

IS A $25 CURRENTLY, KURT. UH WHAT THEY ARE SUGGESTINGWHERE YOU SEE WHAT THEY'RE SUGGESTING. THE, UH SECOND PAGE. THE. THE TIME IS INCREASED. 15 CENTS A MINUTE. LOOK IT'S CURRENTLY 15 CENTS A MINUTE. THEY'RE SUGGESTING 35 CENTS A MINUTE UP TO $21 NOW, THANKS TO $16. UM AND SO THE. AND THEN THERE'S A LITTLE VARIATION ON THE FLAT RATE TO GO FROM THE OPERA LED TO WEST END WEST END OPERATE AND SO FORTH. WOULD BE INSTEAD OF BEING. 25 35. WE'LL HAVE TO. WE'LL HAVE TO, UH, STAFF CAN DO THIS. WE NEED TO IDENTIFY SPECIFICALLY WHAT IS WEST END. UH I KNOW THAT SOUNDS CRAZY, BUT YOU'D BE SURPRISED WHAT PEOPLE WILL COME BACK AND SAY, WELL, HE JUST TOOK ME TO SOME, THOUGH THAT'S NOT REALLY WEST. SO YOU KNOW, I THINK YOU KNOW THE RECOMMENDATIONS WHERE THE CITY SAYS IT'S WEST END TO THE END OF WEST END AS WEST. I THINK THAT'S REASONABLE, AND THAT'S WHAT I WOULD GO WITH.

UNLESS YOU WERE TELLING SOME. UH YOU KNOW, DOWNTOWN TYPICALLY IS CONSIDERED THE INTERSECT THE INNER CORE OF THE CITY WITH THE INTERSTATE MAKING LOOP AROUND. OKAY. THIS TALKS ABOUT A SURCHARGE. DURING RUSH HOUR. OR ANY CURRENT, RIGHT? SUCH THING. WE DO NOT HAVE A SURCHARGE. WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT IT OVER THE YEARS, UH, IN TERMS OF A POSSIBILITY, BUT IT'S NEVER REALLY BEEN TALKED ABOUT. WE TALKED ABOUT SPECIAL EVENTS SURCHARGES AND SO FORTH THAT ALSO. I DON'T REALLY KNOW. WHERE DO YOU SEE THAT SURCHARGE OF $15 DURING RUSH HOURS. 5 TO 9 AND 3 TO 7. ADDITIONAL SURCHARGE OF 15 TO 25 DURING MAJOR EVENTS. CREATE HIGH VOLUME REQUEST. GARY WHICH WHICH? I'M SORRY, JOHN, THE SECOND PAGE OF HIS LETTER. I'M LOOKING AT IT ON. DIFFERENT CONFLICT. WE'VE GOT MULTIPLE WHAT YOU FEAR.

I'M LOOKING AT THE ONE THAT WAS ALWAYS ENDED UP HAVING IS THE COMPANY'S TOGETHER, SIGNED AND I THINK THEY HAVE MENTIONED CHANGES SINCE THE REMOTE I WAS ACTUALLY ANTICIPATING ALL THE COMPANIES BEING PRESENT TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS. YOU YOU RECEIVED TO YOU RECEIVED FROM ME. YOU WOULD HAVE RECEIVED A YOU SAVED INFORMATION FROM. YOU WILL SEE THE INFORMATION THAT WAS FROM NASH, VEGAS. THEN YOU WOULD ALSO RECEIVED A LETTER SIGNED BY NASH.

VEGAS MUSIC CITY CHECKER VOLUNTEER YELLOW TENNESSEE NATIONAL. IN CAB MAGIC IS NOT NOT A SIGNATORY ON IT. HOWEVER UH, SPOKEN WITH HIM AND HE WAS AN APPROVAL LAST TIME, I SUPPOSE. I THINK I THINK EVERYTHING IS THE SAME ON ALL OF THEM. EXCEPT THE SURCHARGE. I DON'T. NASH, VEGAS ONLY AND THEY'RE NOT FATHER. I SUSPECT I SUSPECT THE SURCHARGE THAT THEY WERE SUGGESTING TO ME. WOULD BE IN RESPONSE TO, UM SURGE PRICING AND SUCH THAT THAT EXISTS WITH UBER AND LIFT OR OTHER ROGER. NO, THEY'LL. JEAN YOU'VE GOT YOU'VE GOT A COMPANY SUGGESTION. COMPANY SUGGESTION. THEN YOU HAVE THESE THAT SIGNS. I THINK WHAT YOU'VE GOT A COUPLE OF NO. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALL OF OTHER SEARCH. AND YOU CERTAINLY COULD TAKE ACTION ON PART OF THEM IF YOU WANTED TO CONSIDER SURCHARGES, WHICH AGAIN? WE'VE NOT STUDIED, BUT WE CERTAINLY COULD AND YOU COULD COME BACK AND CONSIDER. OF. ACTUALLY HERE. THEN. HOW DOES THE WAITING TIME WE'RE. WAITING IN OTHER WORDS, YOU WANT TO GO TO THE GROCERY STORE. WHAT YOU DO IS YOU GO TO THE GROCERY STORE.

THEY START THE WAITING TIME DURING THE STORE THAT SO THE MAJOR STOPS RUNNING AT THAT MOMENT, THEN THE TIMER'S RUNNING. SO THAT'S WHAT THAT'S WHAT THIS INDICATION MEANS WHEN 35 CENTS PER MINUTE. WAITING TIME. NOT RUNNING WHILE THEY DRIVE. WE DO NOT ALLOW COMMON. NEW YORK, FOR INSTANCE, RUNS TIME AND MADE IT WE JUST ONE M OR TIME. THERE IS A SLIGHT I MEAN AND I DIDN'T HAVE A SLIGHT INCREASE FOR ADDITIONAL PERSON. SO THE FIRST PERSON THE METER FAIR RUNS WITH THE FLAT, BUT IF THERE'S ADDITIONAL PERSON UNDER THIS PROPOSAL, THEY WOULD GO FROM $1 TO 2. AFTER THE INITIAL. HAVE THAT. PRICE. YEAH. SO RESTED IN. MAKING EMOTION. BRANCHES ALL THE WAY. ON THAT, AND I'M READING FROM THE. LETTER DATED JULY 8 2021 TO THE TRANSPORTATION LIKE AND BY. HAVE VOLUNTEERS, ACTUALLY, YELLOW CAT.

HAVE. IN OTHER WORDS, IT THEY READ THEM INTO THE RECORD. I LOOKED ILLEGAL, I THINK. NONE OF YOU JUST SAID. SINGING ON JUST A SEC. OKAY, SO. 6 72 TO 50 SAYS RIGHT SCHEDULE. NO OWNER DRIVER OF A TAXICAB. SHE'LL CHARGE OF GREATER SOME THE USE OF A TAXI CABS AND THE RATES THAT BELOW METROPOLITAN TRANSPORTATION LICENSING PERMISSION MAY BE ESTABLISHED BY RULE MAXIMUM. RATES AUTHORIZED FLAT FARES AND MINIMUM METER ACTUACION RATES. MADE BY ESTABLISHED BY RULE AN ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR WAITING TIME WAITING TIME SHALL BE CHARGED ONLY FOR STOPS OR DELAYS CAUSED A REQUESTED BY THE PASSENGER. I MEAN, I THINK YOU COULD. I MEAN, IT SEEMS LIKE THESE ARE PRETTY MUCH WITHIN THOSE PARAMETERS. SO, UM. UH YOU KNOW, I WOULD WANT YOU TO BE CLEAR IN YOUR MOTION WHAT YOU WERE ADOPTING AND WHAT YOU WERE NOT ADOPTING. SAMPLE WITH REGARD TO THE SURCHARGE. SO IF YOU WOULD, LIKE, READ EACH ONE OUT, I THINK THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE MORE CLEAR FOR THEIR. I'M CLEAR. CURRENT TIME FROM CHANGE THEM. GOOD THINGS. COURAGE $15.21. YEAH. MILES. YOU'RE 20 CENTS TO 20. ALL RIGHT. SO HOW. TO SO AT SOME POINT, IT MAXES OUT.

15 CURRENT FOR A MINUTE. FOR MAXIMUM. DOLLARS WE'LL CORRAL. IN OTHER WORDS, IF THEY WAIT TWO HOURS, IT WOULD BE $30. BEEN SOMETHING THE CABS AND THEN THE CURRENT PROPOSAL. CREASES. 35 CENTS. OR $21. AT THE MAXIMUM CHARGE. WE WOULD SAY IT IS THE EFFECTIVE DATE. WE REQUIRE DECALS IN EACH CAPSULE HAVE TO HAVE THEM PRINTED, BUT WHAT WE. CARDS OUT. THEY COULD USE. ABSOLUTELY. FRANCE WILL HAVE TO TAKE HIM OFF THE CAB BECAUSE THEY'RE CURRENTLY ON THE WEIGHT. WELL, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, IF I HAD A COUPLE OF WEEKS TO GET THINGS PRINTED IN TERMS OF THE PARTY. AND THEY AND THEN ONCE THEY GOT THE CAR THAT SHOULD BE ENOUGH. WORK WITH THEM, AND IN THE MEANTIME, SOMETIMES HAVE ISSUES GETTING.

PRINTED AND ETERNAL. OR I'M JUST I'M REALLY THINKING MAYBE THE MIDDLE OF OCTOBER. THEY'RE GONNA BE HAPPY TO HAVE THE CAR. GOOD BECAUSE IF WE HAVE TO CHANGE EVERY INDIVIDUAL METERS, TOO. SO THE METER IS GOING TO TAKE. GOOD TIME TO TALK TO EVERYBODY. ONE BY ONE, YOU KNOW, SO. AND MIKE'S NOT A VALUABLE OF ALL THE TIME, SO IT WOULDN'T BE JANUARY 40 BELOW. THANK YOU GREAT INCITEMENT. MADE HIM DO IT. MHM. WE HAVE ANOTHER FIRST. SAYING THE RATING. GOVERNMENT MONEY. YEAH. MR. RIGHT INCREASE. IN MANY, MANY YEARS. WAITING FOR I VOTED FOR WRITING. WELL. WHAT. FIVE. MORE DRIVERS. BLOCK TO THE AIRPORT. LOCAL CALLS. BILLY SET THE RIGHTS FOR. THOSE RIGHTS COMING OUT OF THE AIRPORT FLAT, RIGHT? UPPER LAND. AIRPORT TO DOWNTOWN TRIANGLES. WE CALL IT. THAT WAS MORE BULLFIGHTER WOULD RUN ON THE METER BY THE MILES. ANY. YEAH, COS ALL WANTED THAT. THAT'S FINE. BUT ZONES IS WHAT I'M CONCERNED MORE ABOUT. LOCAL NURSES TO WORK EXCEPT AND.

ZONE SHOULD BE RAISED FROM 3 TO 5. FOUR IS EVERYTHING ELSE. ALONG WITH IT, AND I'M NOT FINE. FLAT RATES THAT'S INSTALLED BY THE CITY. LICENSE INFORMATION. MEMBER. I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS FINE. HAS BEEN A LONG TIME. IS THERE TOO? COUPLE DOLLARS. I DON'T THINK IT OUGHT TO GO. 30. THE DOLLAR'S BE FINE. JONES IS WHAT I'M CONCERNED. WORK. AS THE NURSES AND ETCETERA. IT MADE HER PULL TO DRIVE FROM YEAH, SEE? WORK. NOTABLE ROAD AND HARDY. OR TO BELLEVUE. ANYWHERE IN THIS COUNTY. TO GET SOMEBODY PICKED UP. FOR MORE DRIVERS WOULD GO TO THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE OUR LOCALS TO WORK.

METER POOL WAS RAISED FROM 3 TO 5. EVERYTHING ELSE. I'M NOT REALLY. MR TREMBLE. YOU'RE IN FAVOR OF INCREASING THE METERS. ZONE. OF THE NON FLAT FARE. ALL RIGHT. WHAT BEARS YOUR YOU WOULD BE FINE. COUPLE DOLLARS. I DON'T I DON'T THINK IT'LL BE RAISED $5 A COUPLE DOLLARS ON THE TRUCK. IT'S CALLED THE TRIANGLE THOSE FLAT RIGHTS FROM THE AIRPORT TO DOWNTOWN. OR THE OPERA LAND ANYWHERE IN THAT TRIANGLE. GOING FROM IS THAT FLAT? RIGHT, PLUS A DOLLAR FOR EVERY PASSENGER. OVER THE FIRST PASS.

ALL RIGHT. SO IF YOU GOT. $25 FLAT RATE FROM DOWNTOWN TO THE HILTON AND YOU'VE GOT FOUR PEOPLE $28. I THINK THE DOLLAR PER PERSON SHOULD BE RAISED FROM 1 TO 2. I MEAN, WE'RE HERE ABOUT UBER AND LIFT CHARGING $200 ON THEIR SURGE PHASE AND STUFF LIKE THAT. IF YOU GOT FIVE PEOPLE IN THE TAXI. THAT FLAT RATE OF $25. I THINK. $1 IS A LITTLE LOW. I THINK THE EXTRA PASSENGER CHARGE SHOULD BE TOO. AND THE MAJOR POLLS SHOULD BE IN THE ZONES ON THE OUTSKIRTS. AWAY FROM THE TRIANGLE. SHOULD BE RAISED FROM 3 TO 5. THAT'S GOING TO GET THE NURSES TO WORK TO VANDERBILT BECAUSE MORE CABS ARE GOING TO NOT. BE SO CONCERNED ABOUT DRIVING TO NOSE ROADING, HARDING OR FOR A 65 AND DICKERSON ROAD. YOU SEE WHAT I'M SAYING? YES THAT'S REALLY NEEDED VALUE. AS FAR AS THE FLAT RIGHTS. NOT TOO CONCERNED ABOUT THAT. THAT COULD BE RAISED A COUPLE BUCKS. EXTRA PASSENGER PHASE. TO BE RAISED FROM 1 TO 2 AND THE METER POOL IN THE ZONES AS WE CALL THEM SHOULD BE RAISED FROM 3 TO 5. THAT'S WHAT I'M IN FAVOR FOR. ANY QUESTIONS THAT I CAN HELP YOU GUYS GIVE YOU ANY INSIDE AT ALL ON ANYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS SITUATION.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH HELPFUL. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. ASKING QUESTIONS AND THE NATURAL LEGAL? YEAH ANY STANDARD THAT WE HAVE TO MEET LIKE WE HAVE, ON THE OTHER THINGS THAT PUBLIC NECESSITY AND CONVENIENCE. RAISING THE RATES AND, UM. NOT THAT I'M AWARE OF I MEAN, PRETTY MUCH, UM THE LANGUAGE THAT ARE READ TO YOU FROM THE CODE IS ALL IT SAYS ABOUT THAT, UM UH, YOU GOT. IT DOES ACTUALLY SAY THE METROPOLITAN TRANSPIRATION ROTATION LICENSING COMMISSION MAY AUTHORIZE A SURCHARGE FOR SPECIAL EVENTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH COMMISSION RULES. AND YOU CAN AUTHORIZE A TEMPORARY FUEL SORT. SURCHARGE LIKE IF YOU'RE IN A GAS CRISIS, I GUESS. BASED ON THIS QUESTION, IF YOU WILL. CONCERNS OR SUGGESTIONS REGARDING THE INCREASE ON THE. DESCRIBED AS TWO TRIANGULAR AREA. NO, I JUST WAS TRYING TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTOOD. MR TREMBLE ON ON THAT POINT. IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY'RE THEY'RE IN PRETTY MUCH. UNITY BETWEEN AMONGST THE COMPANIES THAT MEDIA AFFAIRS NEED TO BE INCREASED THE FLAT RATES MAYBE. SHOULD BE INCREASED. UM THE EXACT AMOUNT YOU KNOW, IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE'S NOT A COMPLETE CONSENSUS, BUT. PRETTY CLOSE. UM, ON SOME ADDRESSING IT SOMEHOW, UM.

BUT THE METERED FARE SEEMED TO BE WHERE THEY HAD THE GREATEST. UH CONCERN ON INCREASING AND THE ADDITIONAL PERSON PER VEHICLE CHARGE. NOTICED MR TRIMBLE HAD SIGNED OFF ON THIS LETTER AS WELL. YOU DID. PARTIAL. OKAY THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS. HAVE HER SOUND OFF ON THE PARTIALLY. BUT ME AND THE OTHER CAMP COMPANIES ARE NOT IN A VERY TOTALLY. AND I'M GONNA EXPLAIN TO YOU WHILE. MR FAILS CAN ATTEST TO THIS. THOSE FLAT RATES COME OUT OF THE AIRPORT TO DOWNTOWN. OR TO OPERATE LIKE. FAST. FIRST OF THOSE THREE. THEY'RE TRYING VALUE WHEN THOSE WERE INSTALLED. THEY WERE THREE AND $4 OR $5, MORE THAN THE METER WOULD RUN. THEY WERE HIRED. THEY WERE SET HIRED BACK THEN. IF YOU WANT BY THE METER RATED FOR KNOWLEDGE. DOWNTOWN AT FIFTH AND BROADWAY, THE AIRPORT IT WOULD NOT RUN FOR FIVE HOURS STILL THOSE WERE SET HIGHER THEN. I'M NOT IN AGREEMENT THAT THOSE SHOULD BE CHANGED BECAUSE IF YOU CHANGE THE AIRPORT FLAT RATE TO DOWNTOWN OR TO OPERA LAND, YES. WHAT. GOING TO HAVE MORE CABDRIVERS FLOCKED TO THAT AIRPORT. AND SIT DOWN TOWN AND IT OPERATOR BECAUSE THEY'RE FLAT RIGHT? IT'S GONE FROM 25.

30 OR 35. IT'S GOING TO GIVE US NO MORE CABS AT 24 HARDY. FOR DICKERSON AND 65 OR BELLEVUE. TO GET HER NURSES AND OUR LOCALS TO WORK AND I GOT A BUNCH OF DEPENDS ON MY YOU RAISE THOSE FLAT RATES. YOU AIN'T DOING NOTHING BUT SAID MORE CASH TO THE AIRPORT. THEY DON'T MAKE NO MORE CABS OUT THERE. THEY'VE GOT PLANTED. THEY GOT 67 WAYS OF TRANSPORTATION OUT THERE. SO I'M NOT IN AGREEMENT THE OTHER TIME. I SIGNED OFF ON IT NOT FULLY BUT WE HAD A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION. OPINION IS THE MAJOR INCREASE IN THE ZONE FROM 3 TO 5. EXTRA PASSENGER FREE FROM FROM 1 TO 2. THAT'S IT. THANK YOU FOR THAT EXPLANATION. HAPPY HOUR AWAY FROM JUST. I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THIS PROPOSAL. AND TRYING TO READ IT CORRECTLY, BUT 12345 DOWN ON THERE BECAUSE AIRPORT TO OPRYLAND $30. THEN TWO MORE DOWN THERE IT GOES AIRPORT OR OPRYLAND TO WEST END.

THAT'S $35. AND THEN WEST END TO OPRYLAND AIRPORT IS $35 BECAUSE THERE'S ADDITIONAL BUT MORE DISTANCE FURTHER BEING ORDERED TO WITHIN A. AS WE CALL IT WITH, WITH TWO TRYING WHY? WHAT AMOUNT? YEAH. NOT THAT MUCH MORE EXCITING. YES, THAT'S RIGHT. YEAH. BILL IT CAN ASK BILLY A QUESTION, UH, IN THE PAST, HAD THE CONVENTION BUREAU AND. DOWNTOWN PARTNERSHIP, HAVEN'T THEY HAD AN INTEREST IN AIRPORT FEES THAT THEY. I THINK HISTORICALLY, THEY HAVE, I THINK, SINCE 2015 WITH THE ADVENT OF, UH GOOBER NETWORK COMPANIES WHO WERE LEFT AND RIDESHARE, I THINK THAT'S THAT'S CHANGED THE ENTIRE LANDSCAPE. YEAH. THERE WAS A TIME WHERE. THE CAVS WERE OUR TRANSPORTATION. I STILL THINK THEY SHOULD BE OUR TRANSPORTATION BECAUSE THEY ADHERE TO A PRETTY STRICT STANDARDS THERE ARE ISSUES WE HAVE, AND THEY KNOW THOSE ISSUES THAT I SHARE WITH THEM. SO YOU KNOW, I WANT TO REWARD. AND YOU KNOW, SO I MEAN I ACTUALLY SEE BOTH SIDES BECAUSE IT'S REALLY INSTANT THERE'S A BREAK POINT. WEIRD WHERE'S THAT TIPPING POINT WHERE IT'S TOO MUCH, AND IT'S UNREASONABLE BECAUSE IF YOU'RE RUNNING IN, AND THAT WAS RIGHT BACK WHEN WE SET THE FLAT RATE IN 2000 AND THREE I THINK IT WAS THE FIRST TIME, HE SAID.

IT WE RAN METERS TO SAY I MEAN, I HAD TWO OR THREE DAYS I SAID, GO RUNNING MATE OR BRING IT BACK. AND ANYWAY, IT WAS I WANT TO SAY IT WAS, UH. THE 25 WAS TWO OR $3 MORE THAN IF YOU JUST RAN A METER, BUT THERE WAS ALSO IT'S ALSO A RELATIVELY. I MEAN, THEY'RE LOOKING FOR THE HOME RUN. WHAT? THEY'RE LOOKING FOR THE RUN TO CLARK. OR YOU KNOW, AND THEY ALL WANTED $30 A YEAR $25 FAIR, AND THAT'S ONE OF THE ISSUES WE HAVE WITH DRIVERS. THEY'LL CHARGE A FLAT RATE WHERE THERE'S NOT A FLAT RATE SO ANYTHING WOULDN'T DO TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO FOLLOW THESE RULES. BECAUSE MANY EVEN ALLOCATE SPEAK FOREVER, CAPTAIN ONES THAT HAVE COME TO SAVING, YOU KNOW THEY. AREN'T HAPPY WITH, UH, WITH THE SYSTEM, NOT NECESSARILY US AS A SYSTEM, BUT THE UBERS AND LIFTS THAT YOU KNOW THEY SEE A LOT OF MONEY BEING MADE. A LOT OF FORMER CAB DRIVERS ARE OVER LEFT. DRIVE AND RIGHT NOW WE HAVE A LOT OF DRIVERS THAT HAVE LEFT THE BUSINESS THAT WE HAVE BEEN EXCITING OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS DOWN ON BROADWAY FOR OPERATING AS A TAXI CAB WITHOUT BEING A TAXI CAR, SO.

UM EXCUSE MY IGNORANCE BUT ASSUME UBER AND LEFT DON'T HAVE SOME STANDARD FARE FROM THE AIRPORT. IS THAT THEIR DEMAND BASIS FLUCTUATES WITH WHATEVER THE SURGEON WHETHER THERE'S A SURGE THE ONE TIME TO THE MANTLE PROPRIETARY ALGORITHM. MHM. WELL, I'LL MAKE A MOTION. UM, BEFORE US ARE. LIKE 11 INDIVIDUAL RATE INCREASES FOR CAB DRIVERS, AND I WOULDN'T MOVE TO APPROVE ALL 11 AND I'LL ARTICULATE THEM. THAT WOULD BE NUMBER ONE A METER PULL INCREASED TO $5. AIRPORT TO DOWNTOWN $30 DOWNTOWN AIRPORT. $30 DOWNTOWN, THE OPRYLAND $30. AIRPORT TO OPRYLAND, $30 OPRYLAND AIRPORT OR DOWNTOWN $30. AIRPORT OR OPRYLAND TO WEST END. WOULD HAVE BEEN DEFINED UP TO INTERSTATE 4 40 $35 WEST END AGAIN UP TO INTERSTATE 4 42 OPRYLAND AIRPORT $35. AN INCREASE IN THE MILES RATE OF 25 CENTS FOR 1/10 OF A MILE FOR A MAXIMUM OF 200 TO $2.50 PER MILE. TIME. 35 CENTS PER MINIMUM OR A MAXIMUM OF $21 PER HOUR. AND THEN AN INCREASE OF THE ADDITIONAL PERSON. $22 THIRD PERSON. I THINK, SINCE IT'S BEEN SINCE 2000 AND THREE THESE ARE MODEST. IN MY OPINION, VERY MODEST INCREASES IN THE RIGHT PROBABLY. BELOW WHAT THEIR COST OF INSURANCE HAS BEEN. OR INCREASE IN THAT. OH, AND WITH AN EFFECTIVE DATE OF JANUARY 1ST 2022.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR. MANY DAYS. MOTION PASSED. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK. WE HAVE ANOTHER PUBLIC HEARING TODAY. I'VE BEEN ASKED TO REVIEW A REQUEST. FOR AN EMERGENCY NON CONSENT RECORD RATE INCREASE. FIELD. DECORATE YOUR STANDARD RESTAURANT COUNCIL. HOME. SO YOU'RE ROLLING THIS WOULD BE, UH, MAKING IF YOU CHOSE TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION. THERE'S ALSO. A COUPLE OF LANGUAGE ISSUES THAT I THINK THEY WANT TO TALK WITH YOU ABOUT THAT WOULD LIKE THEY'D LIKE TO SUGGEST GOES INTO THE ORDINANCE AS WELL. THE COMPANIES OF. THE EMERGENCY COMPANIES AS A GROUP HAVE WORKED TOGETHER.

I BELIEVE THAT. COTTONS AND DAD'S, WHICH IS COTTON'S IN TOW, PROLE AND. DAD'S AND WEST NASHVILLE ANYWAY THEY HAVE THE OPERATE MULTIPLE ZONES. THEY ALSO HAD RUN THE HEAVY RECORDS IN TOWN. SO UH, THEY HAVE REPRESENTATIVES HERE AND THEY'RE MAKING THEIR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES AS WELL. BUT THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT EXPENSES AND, UH, THAT. THAT ARE DRIVING THIS REQUEST THE THEY HAD AN INCREASED THREE OR FOUR YEARS AGO. UM THREE. I THINK AND FROM LOOKING AT, UM. AT INVOICES AND LOOKING AT BILLS AND LOOKING AT NEW REGULATIONS, THE DIESEL CHANGES THAT YOU ALL HAVE HAD TO MAKE AND RECOVERIES AND ALL SORT OF INTERESTING THINGS THAT I GET IN THERE SHOPS AND DON'T UNDERSTAND MOST OF IT. UH THEY'VE THEY HAVE CONCERNS AND IN SOME WAYS, THIS IS ACTUALLY SIMPLIFYING BECAUSE IT'S REDUCING SOME LANGUAGE.

BUT THERE ARE SOME INCREASES AND AGAIN THEY'RE HERE, AND THEY'RE PRESENTLY GLAD TO SPEAK. ALL RIGHT. IF YOU PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND IF YOU'D LIKE TO SPEAK ON THE ISSUE. MR MITCHELL. HELLO. I'M JIM MITCHELL. UH, WITH IS TELLING IN WEST NATIONAL RECORD. I'M ALSO THE PRESIDENT OF THE DAVIS COUNTY EMERGENCY TELLING ASSOCIATION. I REPRESENT JUST HIS OWN COMPANIES IN TOWN. I SPOKE WITH MANY OF THEM IN COURSE THEY'RE ALL IN FAVOR OF THE INCREASE, OF COURSE. I'D LIKE TO FIRST GO OVER OR JUST A FEW OF THE REASONS THAT WE HAVE COME TO THE.

IN NEED OF THIS, AND THEN I'LL GO OVER SOME OF THE OBSTACLES THAT ARE SORT OF IN A WAY THIS. MAKING THE STRUGGLE TO CONTINUE TO RUNNING. ONE OF OUR MAIN PROBLEMS IS LOCATING IT IN KEEPING EMPLOYEES AND OUR WAGES ARE UP ABOUT 30% THIS YEAR JUST TO MAINTAIN THE DRIVERS THAT WE'VE HAD. DRIVERS ARE BEING PURSUED AT AN UNBELIEVABLE RATE AND MANY DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS AND WE'RE LOSING A LOT OF. UH A FUEL PRICES COURSE YOU'LL KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENED TO FUEL IN THE LAST, YOU KNOW, YEAR AND A HALF OR SO IT'S ALMOST DOUBLED IN DIESEL NOW. ARE ALL IS JUST EVEN WORSE THAN THE FUEL OR WHICH DIESELS HAVE TO BE SERVICE. QUITE OFTEN REGULAR OR THE ENGINES FAILED. INJECTORS FAIL, AND IT'S UP ABOUT 55.

OUR TIRE COST? YEAH ANYTHING RELATED TO PETROLEUM, WHICH IT TIRES. THE IS JUST GONE COMPLETELY CRAZY. AND HORSE. PART OF THAT IS GETTING THE TIRES NOW IS BECOME BECOME A PROBLEM. WE'RE STRUGGLING ON MANY OF THE ATOMS TO KEEP HER TRUCKS RUNNING BECAUSE OF THE EVERYBODY'S OUT OF PARTS AND TIRES AND. JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING RELATED TO THE OPERATION TO VEHICLES CHIPS. UH GOOD YEARS, EXPECTING TO HAVE AT LEAST ANOTHER 8% INCREASE BEFORE THE END OF THIS YEAR, WHICH IS NOT VERY LONG. OUR TRUCK COSTS ARE UP MORE THAN 10% THIS YEAR AND WE CAME BACK. TRUCKS HAVE. ABOUT TWO TRUCKS THIS YEAR AT SIX ORDER TO GET TO HAVE TO STILL ON ORDER THAT ARE NOT EXPECTED TO COME BACK EVEN BY THE END OF THE YEAR. OUR TRUCK COST AND I'LL SHOW YOU WHAT TO WHAT OUR COST IS. I BROUGHT A COUPLE OF INVOICES OF THE LAST TWO TRUCKS OF ALL. JUST A FEW YEARS AGO, WE WERE PAYING 65 TO PLAY 72,004 ROLLBACK TRUCK. YOU CAN'T TOUCH ONE NOW FOR UNDER 95 TO $105,000, DEPENDING ON HOW WELL IT'S A QUICK. IF YOU CAN FIND ONE RIGHT NOW. UM. UNLESS YOU HAVE A CONNECTION SOMEWHERE.

YOU CAN'T BUY A ROBOT THERE. NONE AH, PURSUIT UNLESS IT'S A USE ROLLBACK EVERY NOW AND YOU CAN FIND IT. USE ONE SOMEWHERE, WHICH I HAVE PURCHASED A USED ONE JUST RECENTLY. UH, PARTS COST IS UP 5 TO 7% EVEN THEIR COOLANT ANTIFREEZE COOLING, WHICH HAS TO BE SERVICE REAL RECORD ON DIESELS. IS F 18. ONE OF THE FACTORS THAT WE RUN INTO THAT WE'VE COLLEGES TO INCREASE AS FOR AN INCREASE IS. TIME TO RUN A CALL USED TO TAKE APPROXIMATELY HOUR IN NATIONAL AND NOW WITH THE TRAFFIC WORD EXPERIENCING AGAIN. WE CAN'T BE TO CALL IN NASHVILLE. WE. WE SPEND AT LEAST TWO HOURS ON THE CALL NOW, HOUR AND 40 MINUTES TO TWO HOURS ON THE CAR, WHICH DOUBLES YOUR TIME AND SLOW YOUR DRIVER'S ABILITY DOWN TO BE ABLE TO RUN THE COWS OR INSURANCE COSTS IS RAISED TREMENDOUSLY, MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE INJURIES WE'VE DRIVERS HAVE HAD ENDED DESTITUTE.

JEROME BACK DRIVERS. WE'VE ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTED SEVERAL DIFFERENT UH, REQUESTS THAT WE MAKE OUR DRIVERS DO WHEN THEY'RE ON INTERSTATE NOW TO KEEP FROM GETTING FIELD. OR SERIOUSLY INJURED. UM THIS IS SOME OF THE THINGS THAT. THAT WE'RE EXPERIENCING. I'LL KEEP ME OUR TRUCKS RUNNING IS RIGHT NOW. THE. TIFF SYSTEM, WHICH IS THE AFTER TREATMENT SYSTEM THAT PURIFIES THE FUMES FROM THE TRUCK. PARTS SUPPLY FORM OR GONE. THERE'S WE CAN'T BUY THE PARTS FROM THEM. SOME OF OUR TRUCK. WE'VE HAD FOUR TRUCKS TO SITTING FOR MOST OF THIS YEAR NOW WAITING ON PARTS AND CAN'T GET HIM STILL. THAT'S THE ONE THE REASONS WE HAVE TO HAVE SO MANY SPARE TRUCKS. JUST TO BE ABLE TO KEEP THE DEMAND. GOING. THE AFTER TREATMENT SYSTEMS. UH, NOT EXPECTING TO SEE THE PARTS THERE TO FILL THE ORDERS FOR THE DUDA'S FIRST AND WE GET AFTER THAT. WE'RE ALLOWED TO RECEIVE THE ORDERS AND. COURSE YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS THAT WE'RE SECOND TO GET INTO THE PARTS THAT COME IN, SO IT'S BECOMING MORE AND MORE DIFFICULT TO GET THE PARTS TO FIX THEIR TREATMENT SYSTEMS.

THE ENGINES ARE. TOOK FOUR MONTHS TO GET AN ENGINE TO REFURBISH MORE OF THE TRUCKS JUST ORDER A NEW MOTOR. IT TOOK FOUR MONTHS TO GET THE MOTORING. NOW THAT'S JUST, YOU KNOW, USED TO BE ORDER MOTOR IN THREE DAYS LATER, YOU HEADED ON YOUR DOCK. YOU READY TO GO? BUT YOU CAN'T YOU CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE. MILLER IS PREDICTED TEMPERATURE INCREASE IN SALES, WHICH THEY CAN'T EVEN SUPPLY THE TRUCKS. NOW THAT WE'RE ORDERING THE KINGDOM CAN'T COME UP WITH. OR TO BUY DIRECTLY FROM MILLER TO CROUCH RECORD SERVICES. THANK YOU. SORRY I'VE GOT TWO ORDERS RIGHT NOW. AND DON'T EXPECT TO SEE HIM THIS YEAR. IT'S DIFFICULT TO COMPLETE THE JOBS NOW WHEN YOU CANNOT GET THE EQUIPMENT TO DO IT WITH ANYMORE, AND WHICH THAT MEANS WE'RE HAVING TO REPAIR THE OLDER TRUCKS MORE AND MORE AND MORE, WHICH IS. GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO DO BECAUSE THE CHIPS PROCESSORS EVERYTHING WE NEED TO KEEP THEM RUNNING IS NOT AVAILABLE.

WE'RE STRUGGLING JUST TO GET ONE OF MY TRUCKS RUNNING THE OTHER DAY I HAD ACTUALLY GO AND GET A USED PART FOR WHICH I DON'T LIKE TO DO UNLESS IT'S A EMERGENCY, BUT I HAD NO CHOICE. BECAUSE I WAS EXPECTING SIX MONTHS BEFORE THIS FAR TO BE AVAILABLE IN A KNOCK SENSOR SIMPLE AS A KNOCK SENSOR. UM. YOU KNOW THE COURSE I DON'T EVEN HAVE TO MENTION THE COST OF PROPERTY TAXES. I KNOW EVERYONE KNOWS THAT WHAT WE'VE HAD INVOLVED IN THAT WHICH WHICH STARTS SOON. BUT THERE'S MANY, MANY OTHER THINGS THAT GO ALONG WITH THAT, AND I UNDERSTAND WHY EVERYBODY'S HAD TO GO UP ON THIS BECAUSE THEY'RE IN THE SAME POSITION. WE'RE IN. THESE ARE THE MAIN REASONS WE REQUESTED IT, UH, I BELIEVE THAT WOULD BE FULLY AVAILABLE AT IT TILL WE DO HAVE SOME KIND OF INCREASE TO MAKE IT PROFITABLE AND BE ABLE TO CONTINUE.

UM PROPOSED RATE INCREASE. LONG 0.80. CAN I'M ASSUMING THAT THIS RED LINE IS WHAT KEEP IN REFERRING TO IN TERMS OF WHAT THE INCREASE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE TO GO TO X RAYS. YES THAT'S CORRECT FOR YOU LOOKING INTO VEHICLES UNDER £7000. YES. IT WORST 1 55. WE'RE ASKING FOR 2 50, THE WHAT IS THE. SAYS WHEN THE USE OF AIRBAGS REGARDING SPECIAL RECOVERY CIRCUMSTANCES IN ADDITIONAL RATE. OF CURRENTLY IT'S 5000 INCREASE IT TO 7000 MAYBE CHARGE. WHAT IS WHAT IS THAT? EVERY BAGS ARE ASSISTANT THAT WE USED TO STAND THE 18 LITERS WHEN THEY ROLL OVER. IN THE WORDS I HAVE A FUTURE OF MY PHONE. I'LL TRY TO GET PULLED UP. MAYBE ONE OF Y'ALL PULL ONE UP FOR ME, SO I CAN SURE IT'S REALLY YOU REALLY NEED TO SEE HOW THIS WORKS. UH IT'S AN AIR BAG BIG ENOUGH FOR 26 AIRBAGS CAN ACTUALLY LIFT A LOADED TRAILER UP TO THE POINT WHERE.

THE TRUCK SHOULD RECOVER. IN OTHER WORDS, THEY'RE SO HEAVY IN THEIR POSITION SO BAD THAT OUR ROTATOR CZAR SLIDING ACROSS THE ROAD TO PICK HIM UP. SO WE CAN'T STOP WE GET THEM UP ENOUGH THAT WE GET TO AIR BAGS ON HER. WE AIR. THE AIR BAGS UP IN THE AIR BAGS HELPED LIFT THE TRAILERS UP. AND THEN THE TRUCKS CAN PULL THEM ON OVER EACH. THE COST OF THESE AIRBAGS ARE LIKE $3000 A BAG AND SO YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT RUBBER AGAINST METAL NOW HOW EASY IT IS TO DAMAGE IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

I DON'T THINK. EVER COME IN WITHOUT AT LEAST EVERY OTHER TIME WITHOUT HAVING TO REPAIR REPLACE ONE OF THEM. SOMETIMES WE ARE ABLE TO REPAIR THERE ARE REPAIR KIDS FORM WHICH HELPS US SON. TAKING ALL WE REPAIRED SO MANY TIMES TO BUT IT IS IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU HAVE TO DO WITH EVERY TIME YOU'RE OUT, BUT IT'S SOMETHING THAT IT'S A. A BETTER $70,000 EXPERIENCE TO MAINTAIN THE AIRBAGS. GIVE HIM THE CHIEF OF MAN. I'LL BRING YOURSELF OKAY. SHOW YOU THIS YEAR. THAT'S THE ORANGE OF THE AEROBATICS COURSE HELPED LIFT TRY. OKAY? AS I SAY. IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT INVOLVES CARS IS RIGHT? WOW. DONE. AND YOU FOR MOST WITH. WHAT STANDARD THAT WE NEED TO APPLY AS A COMMISSION. WE'RE GOING TO MAKE A RECOMMENDATION ABOUT RATE INCREASES BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO BE. REASONABLE OR WHAT? JUST YOU. YOU'RE CONSTRAINED BY THIS THING. CRAFTING THOSE HAVE. TO RECOMMENDATIONS. COUNCIL WOULD THEN HAVE TO CHANGE THE CODE, BUT COORDINATES UM SO WHEN THE TLT PASSES ANY MOTION, UM YOUR OBLIGATION IS TO REFRAIN FROM BEING ARBITRARY.

PRECIOUS. THAT MORE THAN EVIDENCE UPON WHICH TODAY. BURN KIND OF LIKE A BEST PRACTICE FOR YOU ON RING EMOTIONS ON THE RECORD. WITH REFERENCE TO THE EVIDENCE. WHY DID UM UH PEOPLE WHO HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU? OFF COMMENTS, UM OR WRITTEN MATERIAL. MR MITCHELL. I KNOW I'VE HEARD YOU EXPLAIN, YOU KNOW? PRETTY WELL WHY THERE NEEDS TO BE A NUMBER OF RATE INCREASES. COULD YOU TALK TO THE STORAGE? THE IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WANT TO PRIEST THAT QUITE A BIT. 40 TO $100 PER DAY, AND I ASKED MAINLY BECAUSE THIS IS A. YOU KNOW THIS IS A NON CONSENT. SITUATION WHERE YOU'VE GOT CAR OWNER OR TRUCK ON HER. CAR IS BEING TOWED. IMAGINE AND THEY MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT IT FOR SEVERAL HOURS. DIDN'T REALIZE THEY ALSO GOT STORAGE B THROUGH THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN MOST QUICKLY, YOU KNOW, SOUND. SOME OF THEM ARE JUST. JUST LIVED AND NEVER COME AND GET THEM AND THAT'S WHERE YOU LOSE TREMENDOUSLY. THEY NEVER PLAYED. THE NOBILITY NEVER TOOK HIM UP.

TO DISPOSE OF THE BEST WAY YOU CAN. BUT THE COST TO PROVIDE THE PROPERTY TO STORE THESE VEHICLES NOW FINDING IT INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY IN NASHVILLE. GOOD LUCK. IT IS JUST UNBELIEVABLE. WANT TO HAVE TO PAY FOR A SMALL PIECE OF INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY. IF YOU CAN FIND IT. I WISH WE COULD A LOTS OF MORE INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY AROUND SOMEWHERE BECAUSE WE DEFINITELY NEEDED. AND THE ONLY THING WE CAN BE ON HIS INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY. YOU KNOW, IT HAS TO BE ZONED PROPERLY FOR THAT. SO, UH, WE WOULD COURSE HAVE TO PURCHASE IT OR RENT MOST OF TIME. I'M NOT HAD A LOT OF LUCK RAINING.

USUALLY EVERY TIME I RENTED SOMETHING WITHIN A FEW MONTHS, IT'S SOLD. BUT WHEN I PURCHASE IT, IT'S GOING EARLIER FROM OTHER. YOU THINK YOU HAVE TO MOVE AGAIN AND THAT IS LAST GENERATION. ONE REASON WE'VE HAD SOME MERCHANT COMPANIES. I WOULD SAY THE ONLY REASON THEY WENT OUT OF BUSINESS, BUT THEY WERE. WE'VE HAD SOME RENTALS THAN THEY LOST. THE RENT CONFINED. INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY NOT AGAIN ISOLATED, BUT IT'S VERY LIMITED. ON WHAT'S AVAILABLE IN THE COUNTY BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN ROUNDED AROUND WITH THEM. GET THEM. GET THEM MAPS OUT. LOOK AT FOR INDUSTRIAL AND THE OUR ZONING IS IT'S. IT'S LIMITED, IT REALLY IS OR AND IN A NON CONSENT.

SELLING SITUATION ARE THE COMPANIES REQUIRED. TAKE THE CAR TO A LOT WITHIN A CERTAIN. AREA OR THEY CAN'T LIKE TAKE IT OUT TO THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE COUNTY. NOT UNLESS THAT'S THE FURTHER I MEAN, THEY'RE ALL. MOST OF THEM ARE CENTRAL OR CLOSE TO THE MIDDLE'S. AT LEAST THAT'S WHAT THEY WORK FOR. IN SOME CASES, HOWEVER, UH AND I WON'T SPEAK FOR DAVID WAVES OF COTTONS. BUT FOR INSTANCE, YOU KNOW IF YOU GO TO COTTON'S YOUR. YOU ARE OUT ON A VICAR BOULEVARD IS IN THE CANON. BUT THAT'S WHERE THE ZONE I MEAN IT'S IN THE ZONE, AND THAT'S WHERE INDUSTRIAL PROPERTIES AVAILABLE. UH AND IN THE SAME WAY YOU DIDN'T MENTION THE BABY EQUIPMENT. AND YOU DID SAY ROTATOR ROTATE IS BASICALLY A TRUCK WITH A CRANE ON TO BACK UP. I MEAN, WAY OUT DESCRIBED AS ALIGNMENT THAT'S JUST ONE PART OF THE LARGE RECOVERY AND THE LARGE CLEANUPS NOW. THIS FEELS FEELS THAT ALL SPILLS SKID STEER THE BOBCATS.

THE BULLDOZERS, EXCAVATORS THAT'S REQUIRED TO DO THE CLEANUP. OR. I MEAN, WE WERE IS NO WAY WE CAN BUY MODERN EQUIPMENT. WE HAVE TO OLD AND REFURBISH EQUIPMENT BECAUSE IT'S IMPOSSIBLE. THIS EQUIPMENT IS JUST UNBELIEVABLY HARD. SO WE HAVE TO CONSTANTLY MAINTAIN OLDER EQUIPMENT TO DO THESE CLEAN UP WITH THIS. IF I TOLD YOU, WOULD YOU THOSE ARE ESCALATING COSTS. YOU THINK I'M KIDDING? THEY'RE JUST GONE CRAZY ON THEM IS SO, UH SO I'LL BUY OUR EQUIPMENT. MOST OF IT DATES BACK INTO THE EIGHTIES AND EARLY NINETIES OWN OLIVE. WE KEEP IT MAINTAINED WELL ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO USE IT STILL, BUT WE STILL HAVE TO WE STILL HAVE TO MAINTAIN IT TO THE POINT WHERE IT'S WHEN WE GO OUT TO DO IT.

WE'RE NOT OUT THERE FOR DAYS DOING ONE DAY JOB. WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO DO THEM QUICKLY. I BELIEVE BOTH COMPANIES ARE EXTREMELY GOOD AT REMOVING LOSING GETTING THE INTERSTATES OPEN. PROBABLY FACTORED IN ANY OTHER COUNTRIES CAN DO IT. THANK YOU, MISS. THE CAT, MR METRIC A COUPLE OBSERVATIONS AND ASKING FOR YOU AND PUT BACK ON BEFORE YOU SIT DOWN. YOU TALKED ABOUT. TRUCK PRICES UP ABOUT 10% CARDS GOING FROM 5 TO 7% INCREASE COOLING UP 18. AND THEN YOU SHARED WITH US A LOT OF THINGS THAT WERE UNAVAILABLE NOW. DRIVER SHORTAGES, TIRES ARE HARD TO COME BY PART TO UNAVAILABLE. SO YOU KEEP AN OLDER EQUIPMENT GOING. BUT WHEN I DID IT RANDOM RANDOMLY GOING THROUGH THE REQUEST FOR THE INCREASE IS HERE. THEY'RE IN THE RANGE OF 42% 44% 67% FOR LABOR INCREASES. WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT 10 OR 15% INCREASE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. YOU KNOW THE 40 TO 50 67% INCREASE IN EVERYTHING. SOME OF THEM ARE, BUT SOME OF THEM ARE NOT THERE, BUT WELL, LET'S LET'S TAKE THIS ONE HERE FOR RECORD COMPANIES AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE AN ADDITIONAL FEE FOR 20. IT WAS $50. AND YOU WANT $300 NOW? I DIDN'T EVEN ADD THAT ONE IN THERE.

I WAS TRYING TO TAKE SOME OF THE ONES. BUT MOST OF OUR FROM LIKE 175, THEY'RE GOING UP $75. AT THE 42% INCREASE, OR THE WINCHING WENT SO FAR OFF THE ROAD IT REQUIRES, UH, WHEN IT GETS TO THAT POINT WAS THAT FAR THROUGH IT REQUIRES SOMETHING OTHER THAN WHEN OUR TRUCKS LIKE A SKETCHER AS TO GO OUT THERE TO DO THAT. TO UNDERSTAND YOU CAN'T BE DOING WITH JUST THE TRUCK THEN. WHY ARE YOU ASKING FOR ROUGHLY 40 TO 60% INCREASES ON EVERYTHING ON THE FEES WHEN YOU'RE TELLING ME THAT YOUR YOUR ACTUAL COST OR MORE IN LINE LIKE 10 TO 10 TO 20% WELL, I BELIEVE YOU PUT TOGETHER, THE INCREASE OF THE INSURANCE INCREASED PROPERTY TAXES. THE INCREASE OF. THE UNBELIEVABLE AMOUNT OF SALARIES THAT WE'RE HAVING PLAYED NOW TO KEEP THEM IN. JUST TO MAINTAIN THE EMPLOYEES WE HAVE RIGHT NOW. THEIR SALARIES HAVE GONE UP THIS YEAR ALONE TREMENDOUSLY.

MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE OFF. SURELY YOU'VE NOTICED AS WELL AS I HAVE ALL THE SIGNS FOR DRIVERS EVERYWHERE IN TOWN ARE DRIVERS WILL. BELIEVE US VERY QUICKLY IF WE DON'T PAY THEM ENOUGH TO SURVIVE. SO OUR SALARIES ARE UP JUST A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT. WHAT PERCENTAGE WELL. JUST MY MIND. HEAVIER DRIVERS HAS GONE UP AT LEAST 25% JUST MY MIND. HEAVY DRIVE. EVEN BY LIGHT DUTY DRIVERS HAD GONE UP MORE THAN THAT, WITH SOME OF THEM SOME OF THE BEGINNERS IT'S NOT. BUT AFTER THEY GET TO EXPERIENCE, THEN IT WILL OR THEY LEAVE. AND YOU CAN'T BLAME THEM. THEY'RE OUT TO DO THE BEST THEY CAN FOR THEIR FAMILY. I'VE LOST MORE EMPLOYEES TOWING INDUSTRY THAT I LOST IT. AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY AND ONE YEAR AND THE WHOLE LOT. THE AUTOMOTIVE REPAIR INDUSTRY. ONE YEAR. IT'S HARDEST INDUSTRY I'VE EVER SEEN TO MAINTAIN.

KEEP EMPLOYEES HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS. AND I WILL ACKNOWLEDGE RIGHT NOW THAT I HAVE APPRECIATED YOU COMING DOWN HERE MANY TIMES WITH PEOPLE HAD FELONY CONVICTIONS AND YOUR WILLINGNESS TO PUT THEM TO WORK AND GIVE THEM A CHANCE BECAUSE THERE AREN'T MANY PLACES OUT THERE THAT GIVE PEOPLE WHO ARE CONVICTED FELON. FELONY. AN OPPORTUNITY TO WORK SO WELL, YOU KNOW, I REALLY BEEN VERY FORTUNATE IN THAT AREA BECAUSE I DO KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON AND WHEN WE DO THAT, BUT ALSO.

YOU KNOW, I TRY TO PICK THE ONES THAT I FEEL LIKE WE'RE REALLY DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE AND. FROM INTERVIEWING HIM, AND I'LL BE REALIZED WE HAVE GOT A FEW WITH ME RIGHT NOW. ALL THEY HAVE DONE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC JOB. TRUST HIM, 100. WHEN I'VE JUST RECENTLY HIRED JUST JUST TO DO MY LOT WORK. COURSE, ALL MENTIONING NIGHT, BUT HE IS JUST HELP MY BUSINESS MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE JUST BEING ORGANIZED. AND IF I TOLD YOU WHAT HE WAS IN FOR YOU WOULD SCARE YOU TO DEATH, BUT HE'S JUST GOING TO FANTASTIC JOB. I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THE REASON I'M ASKING THE SOMEWHAT HARD QUESTIONS OF IS BECAUSE YOU MAY HAVE HEARD.

WE HAVE. WHEN WE MAKE A RECOMMENDATION TO THE METRO COUNCIL, WE HAVE TO HAVE SOME RATIONAL, LOGICAL REASON. FOR WITH OUR VERY, VERY SUBSTANTIAL INCREASES IN C YES, SIR. SURE I UNDERSTAND. LOOK, WHY IS WHY IS THE PART OF THE RECORD COMPANIES. PROPOSING A CONSOLIDATED ONE RATE. AS THE RECOVERY BASE RATE FOR VEHICLES. OVER £7000, A BIG PART OF THAT WAS TO ELIMINATE PAPERWORK AND CONFUSION. CONFUSION OF THIS ONE WAS THIS AND THIS WAS THIS AND HAVING TO FIGURE IT. HE'S TRIED TO COME TO A SET RIGHT? IN IN IN THAT RIGHT? IT CONCLUDES WHATEVER WE HAVE TO DO TO DO THIS. SO JUST LIKE, JUST TAKE THE WATER RECOVERY, RIGHT? JUST TO GET A DIVER NOW WHICH, LOCALLY WE'VE GOT TWO CERTIFIED DRIVERS ON STAFF. NOW YOU KNOW WHAT IT COSTS TO BUY THE EQUIPMENT FOR DIVER AND CERTIFIED DIVER. JUST ONE DIVERS ABOUT 20,000. JUST HAVING EQUIPMENT MEANT THE. ON PAGE ONE. IT HAS A. DISTINCTION BETWEEN A TOWED VEHICLE DRIVEN VEHICLE AND ERECT VEHICLE CURRENTLY AND UNDER THE PROPOSAL.

YOU'RE JUST HAVE ONE CHARGES IT TOWED VEHICLE, NO MATTER IF IT'S CONSIDERED A DRIVEN, MOVE OR WRECKED VEHICLE, AND I ASK BECAUSE THERE'S A. YOU KNOW CURRENTLY IS A BIG DIFFERENCE IN PRICING DEPENDING ON IF IT'S A DRIVEN VEHICLE OR FOR DIRECT VEHICLE. WELL, IF IT'S DRIVEN VEHICLE TOW FEES DOESN'T APPLY TO IT. BUT IF IT'S A DIRECT VEHICLE HAS TO BE TOLD IT HAS TO BE TOWED TO BE THOSE PRICES. I DON'T THINK I'VE GONE OUT AND DRIVEN ANY OF A MAN IN A LONG TIME. TO BE HONEST WITH YOU. YOU KNOW, REALLY? AND TRULY, I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER REQUESTED A MAN TO DRIVE ONE IN. ALL THAT IN THE RED LINE THAT IS ASKED ME ELIMINATED, IT SAYS THAT TOWED VEHICLES OR VEHICLE WHICH CAN BE DRIVEN.

BUT IT'S TOWED TO THE LOT ANYWAY. THE REQUEST OF THE YEAH, I SAY THAT'S PROBABLY JUST SOME OF THE TERMINOLOGY THAT WAS IN THE PAST BECAUSE I CAN'T REMEMBER. CAN YOU REMEMBER DRIVING ONE AGAIN? REMEMBER DRIVING ONE HAND? YEAH UH, PROBABLY SOME OF THE OLD LITERATURE THAT WAS IN IT BEFORE. BECAUSE I CAN'T REMEMBER DRIVING ONE YOU NEVER. I'VE BEEN DOING THIS A LONG TIME. I'VE NEVER DRIVEN ONE OF ME. HONESTLY I DON'T WANT TO DRIVE SOMEONE'S CARS IN YOU. YOU KNOW YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT CAR AND THEN RIGHT WHEN IT'S ON THE TRUCK, IT'S CALLED ON HOOK INSURANCE PLAN. IF YOU'RE DRIVING, YOU DON'T HAVE INSURANCE ON THAT CAR IF YOU'RE DRIVING.

THE WAY WE ONLY WE CAN DRIVE, BUT WE JUST WENT THROUGH THIS ON THE TRUCKING COMPANY. THEY WANT TO SPEAK UP TO TRUCKS FOR HIM. ONE OF THEM THOSE TRUCKS TRUCKS WAS DRIVING, BUT THERE WERE IN NORTH CAROLINA. SO THEY WANTED TO DRIVE ONE BAG AND IN TOW ONE BAGS IN TWO MINUTES TRUCK SO I SAID, I REQUESTED PROOF OF INSURANCE ON THE TRUCK THAT WE'RE PICKING UP. OF COURSE HE DIDN'T PROVIDE IT SO I COULD NOT DRIVE IT BACK. SO, UH, YOU KNOW, IT'S MY DRIVERS HAVE INSURANCE ON, OF COURSE, BUT IT. THEY CAN'T PROVE TO ME. THEY HAVE INSURANCE ON THEIR TRUCK AND WE GET INVOLVED. ACCENT. GUESS WHO'S RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT, YOU KNOW, AND THERE'S ONLY ABOUT THREE COMPANIES THAT ARE ENSURING TOW COMPANIES AROUND HOW MANY YOU'VE GOT TO BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL WITH THIS. BUT YOU DO TOLD CARS THAT ARE DRIVE A BLE, BUT THE DRIVER MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE. THE DRIVER REQUEST THAT YOU TOW IT IN RATHER THAN THEM DRIVE, RIGHT? YES, SIR.

WE TOLD WE TOLD ME FOR CUSTOMER REQUEST IS TO DRIVE TO TOY DRIVING CAR IN YESTERDAY. IT'S BUT THAT'S NOT WINCHING. WE WON'T BE WATCHING THEM THEN OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. THAT'S JUST DRIVING. THAT'S JUST YOUR STANDARD TROPHY. OKAY? SINCE JUST IN LOOKING AT THIS AND KIND OF MOVING PAST THE RATES, UM. ON THE THIRD PAGE. YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT DRIVER'S PERMIT REQUIRED FOR DRIVERS AND DRIVERS, HELPERS AND, UM, PROPOSING TO ELIMINATE THE REQUIREMENTS. THEY HAVE A TENNESSEE DRIVER'S LICENSE. WE'VE ASKED TO SEE IF IT'S POSSIBLE TO HAVE A SAY, AND I'M NOT SURE THAT THIS IS POSSIBLE. IS IT POSSIBLE, HOWEVER. WE'RE SEARCHING FOR DRIVERS. SO YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THE REASON FOR THAT IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE. A DRIVER WITH A RECORD PERMIT FROM OUT OF STATE DRIVE FORCE.

I'M NOT SURE IT'S POSSIBLE OR NOT. WE PRESENTED THAT AND IT MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE. UH, THAT'S HISTORY QUEST. IN OUR DESPERATION OF TRYING TO FIND DRIVERS. I SPENT APPROXIMATELY 2 TO 3 HOURS A DAY JUST HUNTING EMPLOYEES EVERY DAY. SIX DAYS AWAY. JUST TRYING TO GET EMPLOYEES INTERVIEWING MY INTERVIEW. START USALLY SOMEWHERE AROUND SIX O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING. JUST TRYING TO FIND I'VE JUST NEVER SEEN ANYTHING QUITE LIKE. ALONGSIDE BEEN GOING ON. ABOUT 18 MONTHS, OKAY? ANALOGOUS TO WHAT MANY OTHER EMPLOYERS ARE EXPERIENCING.

YES, SIR. SEE JUST TO HIRE IF WE HAVE FRESH DRIVER. TO PUT INTO TRAINING IF WE CAN HAVE HIM, TOBIAS FIRST VEHICLE OF COURSE, WE'VE GOT TO PLAY HIM WHILE WE'RE TURNING THEM. NORMALLY HE WOULD BE PAYING US TO TRAINING. BUT OF COURSE, CAN'T DO THAT. BUT IF WE HIRED DRIVER IF WE GET HIM TO TELL A VEHICLE AND 46 WEEKS, IT'S A MIRACLE. THE FIRST VEHICLE. IT'S A TREMENDOUS INVESTMENT JUST TO GET ONE TRYING. SO WE HUNT THROUGH THE DIFFERENT COLLEGES AND STUFF THAT ARE. AUTOMOTIVE DIESEL REPAIR COLLEGE STUDENTS THAT MAYBE HAVE DECIDED THEY'RE NOT INTERESTED IN BEING MECHANIC. BUT THERE WERE INSTEAD OF BEING A DRIVER TRIED TO CONVERT THEM INTO DRIVERS AND TRYING TO MAKE THAT POINT. WE'VE HAD SOME SUCCESS WITH IT. NOT A LOT, BUT SOME THANK YOU, MR MITCHELL. THERE. ANYONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO THE ISSUE.

INCREASING EMERGENCY NOT SENT HER THE RATES. MHM. RIGHT? AT THIS POINT WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING UNLESS THE COMMISSIONER 70 FURTHER QUESTIONS. AND WE CAN DELIBERATE ON THE ISSUE. THERE IS ONE OTHER THEY'RE ALSO MAKING A RURAL REQUEST. ROOT RULE CHANGE. WHICH. IS CURRENTLY THE RULE IS OF EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER. 14 2011 RECORD VEHICLES WILL BE LATER WITH THE NAME OF ENTITY OPERATING RECORD, AND THEN IT SAYS NO NAME OF DISTINCTIVE LOGO OR ANOTHER LESSON COMING UP HERE ON. AT THAT TIME, THERE WERE NO COMPANIES THAT UP THAT ACTUALLY HAD. AN OPERATOR THAT MAY OPERATE TWO OR THREE ZONES. IN THIS CASE, WE'VE GOT THREE COMPANIES THAT OPERATE MULTIPLE ZONES. AND THAT'S THAT HAS BEEN AN ISSUE IF. YOU KNOW FROM FROM, I THINK ITS STAFF PROTECTIVE. WE DON'T REALLY CARE. WE JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE IT'S IDENTIFIED AND IF THEY'RE OPERATING MULTIPLE ZONES, WHAT HAS BEEN THE PRACTICE? IF IT'S A CAR JUST CALLED TOPO COULDN'T GO.

SO EMAIL. TEL PRO AND COTTONS AR OWNED BY THE SAME PERSON AND DESIGN AND THEY MIGHT HAVE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT THAT'S READY TO GO. THAT COULD. COULD TAKE IT, SO I THINK IT'S JUST AN ISSUE THAT WOULD TAKE A REAL CHANGE. THANK YOU, MR FIELDS WITH RESPECT TO THE DRIVER'S LICENSE IF. UM, A LITTLE ISSUE EVER HAVE IS JUST MAKE SURE WE HAVE VERY ACCURATE DRIVING RECORDS AND THAT HISTORICALLY, THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. THAT'S REASON SAY TENNESSEE LICENSE, BUT. WELL. IT'S. REALLY DIFFER MORE BACK TO THE STILL BUT TO BE HONEST WITH YOU BECAUSE THEY FOLKS HAVINGTO DEAL WITH IT. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS JUST THE WAY THE DOCUMENTS COME. AS YOU KNOW, FROM LOOKING AT THE RECORDS WE HAVE IN TENNESSEE. YOU'RE LOOKING AT TENNESSEE RECORD, AND THEN YOU LOOK AT A KENTUCKY RECORD AND THEY CAN BE VERY CONFUSED.

OR YOU ARE A LITTLE ANNOYED OR CALIFORNIA OR WHATEVER. AND WHEN WE DO HAVE DRIVERS, NOT JUST. THAT JUST RECORD DRIVERS THAT COME IN WITH OUR STATE DRIVER'S LICENSE, AND I THINK THE OTHER SIDE IS. DISORDERS WAS ORIGINALLY WRITTEN IN 1998 PASSED IN 1999. I BELIEVE.AND AT THE TIME IT WASN'T AN ISSUE AND YOU KNOW, 22 YEARS LATER, IT MAY BE AN ISSUE AND I THINK THAT'S THE REASON I WANTED TO BRING IT TO YOU.

I'M VERY MIXED EMOTIONS. I DON'T AGAIN. I STILL LOVE THAT. AND I'M NOT TRYING TO PUT ON SPOT. I THINK IT'S HARDER ON STAFF WHEN IT'S NOT ALL THE SAME. THAT'S REASON SO MANY OF OUR ORGANS IS OUR. IDENTICAL SO IT'S EASIER FOR INTERPRETATION BY STAFF AND THAT SORT OF THING SO THAT THAT'S THE REAL ISSUE. I THINK WE WOULD. LIVING IN BOWLING GREEN. WORKING IN NASHVILLE. WHAT IS TRYING TO ENVISION IS, I THINK IF YOU RESIDE IN THE TENNESSEE AFTER 30 DAYS, YOU'RE REQUIRED TO GET A TENNESSEE DRIVER'S LICENSE IF YOU ESTABLISH DOMICILE HERE. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE PERSON WHO MR MITCHELL'S ABLE TO RECRUIT FROM WARREN COUNTY OR FRANKLIN COUNTY, KENTUCKY, AND THEY COME DOWN HERE TO WORK. AND THEY HAVE A KENTUCKY LIFE. THEY CAN'T GET A TENDENCY LIKE. AND THERE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO BEFORE PERMIT OR SOMEONE WAS WILLING TO DRIVE UP FROM HUNTSVILLE. LONG WAY. AND. ON THE BACK OF THE FARE INCREASE. YEAH. THESE RATES WERE INCREASE WHEN YOU SAID THREE OR FOUR YEARS AFTER THE LAST TIME THEY WERE IN CRUISED WAS.

2018 I THINK IT WAS LAST AMENDMENT WHEN IT FINALLY GOT INTO THE, UH THAT DOUBLE SHOWING AT THE BOTTOM OF BELIEVERS 2018. KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING. WE'RE DOING NOW. WELL I MEAN, I DO HAVE THE SAME CONCERNS THAT MR MCNALLY HAS ABOUT JUST THE. THE SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE. CROSS THE BOARD. FOR A NUMBER OF THE RATE INCREASES. SOME OF THEM ARE. MORE THAN 100% INCREASE. AND I HAVEN'T REALLY HEARD ENOUGH. FROM MR MITCHELL. WHO WAS TO GATHER WITH SPEAKING FOR SO PROUD FROM THE OTHER COMPANIES AS WELL, BUT. THAT WOULD SUPPORT FROM ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVE. NEED FOR SUCH A LARGE INCREASE. CERTAINLY IF WE HEARD. FROM MR MITCHELL ABOUT A NEED FOR AN INCREASE, SUGGESTING WE SHOULDN'T BE AN INCREASE, IF THAT'S WHAT THE COMMISSION WOULD LIKE TO DO. THESE ARE REALLY. BIG INCREASES REQUESTED. TAKEN ABACK BY THAT TEAM. DARK IN HERE. I WAS SAYING, I WAS TAKEN ABACK BY THAT, TOO, AND REVEALING THIS WEEK. REALLY? I TRIED TO LOOK UP COPS AND OTHER CITY. ANYTHING IT'S VERY HARD WHEN YOU START AT RECORD RATES. THERE'S A LOT OF CITIES DON'T THEY DON'T REGULATE. OKAY, SO THAT WAS HARD TO DO.

THANK EVERYBODY HERE SYMPATHETICALLY IDEAS THERE. PROBABLY IS THE NEED FOR INCREASED WITH LABOUR COST GOING UP. BUT HOW DO WE ASCERTAIN WHAT THE REASONABLE RIGHT INCREASE. SITTING HERE. TODAY. HOW DOES THIS GROUP DO THAT? THAT'S WHY I ASKED MR STONE AS IF THERE WAS A STANDARD. IT SOUNDS LIKE REALLY. THE ONLY STANDARD BEHALF IS. THAT OUR RECOMMENDATION OF THE ARBITRARY AND CAPRICIOUS BUT THERE'S. NOT HARDER THAN NOT A WHOLE LOT OF MEAT IN THE BONE ON THAT. STANDARD. LIKE THAT ABUSE OF DISCRETION. YEAH, I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO SEND THIS OUT TO A COMMITTEE TO STUDY IT FOR US AND COME BACK WITH RECOMMENDATIONS AND I TAKE WHAT MR MITCHELL SAYS. GREAT CREDIBILITY OF CONSIDER YOU A VERY CREDIBLE INDIVIDUAL, AND I APPRECIATE IT EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE FOR THIS COMMISSION.

BUT I DON'T SEE HOW WE HERE TODAY. OR EVEN ANY OTHER TIME. CONSIDER HERE AND DO A STUDY AND BE ABLE TO COME BACK WITH. RATE INCREASE THAT WE CAN SIT HERE AND SAY HERE'S HERE'S WHY, WITH REAL AS YOU SAY, MEAT ON THE BONE. AND WHAT DO WE DO? DO WE KNOW WHAT THE RATING BLAST RATE INCREASES WERE IN TERMS? WE COULD GET THEM FOR YOU. I COULD DO THAT RIGHT NOW, WHILE I'M SITTING HERE, MAYBE I'LL TRY THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR STARTERS FOR THE RATE INCREASE. I THINK MOST OF IT, MA'AM, MY MEMORY OF IT OVER THE YEARS, IT WAS LOOKED AT WHAT THE RATES WERE 18.

AND THEN YOU LOOK AT, UH. YOU HAD A VERY SIMILAR PRESENTATION. THE LAST TIME THE COST OF EQUIPMENT THE COST OF TIRES THAT COST OF TAXES, THE COST OF RENTAL AND OR PURCHASE AND I THINK THAT'S WHY THAT DECISION WAS MADE. THE LAST TIME IF YOU WANT. WE CERTAINLY CAN WORK WITH WITH THE RECORD COMPANIES AND TRY. TO LISA THANK TO LOOK AT OTHER CITIES AND SEE IF THERE'S ANY COMPARABLE SO IF THERE'S ANYTHING COMPARABLE OUT THERE. BUT AGAIN, I THINK EVERYTHING THERE'S SOME INTANGIBLES AND. THAT YOU JUST CAN YOU BECAUSE I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS TO. IT WAS LIKE THE ONE THAT JUMPED OUT AND THEY WILL REMEMBER THE CONVERSATION ASKED. THERE WAS SOMETHING HERE ABOUT BOATS AND THAT'S IT. GOOD, GOD $150, OR BOAT. AND I THINK, MR MITCHELL AND MR WAVES BOTH LOOKED AT ME AND SAID BILLY THE LAST AND THEY WERE JUST ABOUT THE SAME.

ONE OF THEM HAD A BOAT. THERE WAS JUST A REGULAR BOAT. IT COST HIM $500 TO GET RID OF IT. BECAUSE NOBODY WANTED IT. THEY TRIED TO AUCTION IT. NOBODY CAME TO THE AUCTION, SO THEY BASICALLY PAID A SCRAP COMPANY TO COME. THEY PAY THEM. I THINK TO TAKE IT APART. THEY WANTED $500, WHICH. WAS AMAZING ME AGAIN. I'M NOT NECESSARILY ADVOCATING PRICES, BUT I THINK. AND VERY MUCH LIKE THE VICE CHAIR OUT, TRUST THEIR OPINIONS, BUT I ALSO WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT. THAT YOU'RE ON SOLID FOOTING, RIGHT? SO IF, LIKE, YOU KNOW, WE'VE. HAD A PUBLIC HEARING AND WE GO GATHER SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AND WORK WITH HIM.

MR MITCHELL STANDING. SO, UM. MHM THERE MAY BE A LITTLE BIT MORE TO OUR POSITION, AND THEN A LOT OF PEOPLE REALIZE I DON'T KNOW. ANYWAY I'LL TRAVEL BROADLY PARKWAY NOTICED THE HOUSE TRADER WAS LEFT ON BRILEY PARKWAY. OF COURSE WE WERE WE HAD TO REMOVE IT. PORTION. NO ONE WOULD CLAIM IT. WE HAD TO REMOVE IT. THIS SMILING DISPOSE OF IT. AND THAT WAS THE TUNE OF ABOUT $2200 WHEN WE FINISH THAT JUST COST JUST EXPENSES, NOT INCLUDING THE TIME LOST TO DO THIS. THAT'S ONE OF THEM. TWO BOATS WHO PAYS FOR THAT? NO ONE NO ONE NO ONE. SO WHO CALLS YOU TO COME REMOVE? IT TOOK PLACE THE POLICE THERE? YES AND YOU'RE OBLIGATED TO IT BECAUSE IT'S EMERGENCY. NOW, THE NEXT TWO, THERE'S TWO MORE JUST BRING TO MY MIND READING JUST.

THAT I DID MYSELF WAS TWO BOLTS WAS A 38 FOOTBALL. THAT WE DISPOSED OF THAT, UH, THE ONLY PLACE IT WOULD TAKE THE BOAT TO SPRINGFIELD. OH, FACILITIES.I ACTUALLY TALKED ABOUT THEIR MYSELF ACROSS THE SCALE WITH IT. DISPOSED OF IT. IN THE PROCESS OF THIS REASON I DID IT MYSELF. SO OF COURSE, I WOULDN'T HAVE TO FIGHT THE MAN TO DO IT.

THE OTHER, BUT WE HAD WAS 32 FT ONE THAT RAN UP THE WALL AND BROUGHT IT PART. WE FELL OFF THE TRAILER BECAUSE IT'S BEING TOWED BY INFERIOR VEHICLES. AFTER A WHILE WE WERE LEFT WITH IT DISPOSE OF IT THE SAME WAY. THERE'S ZERO. WE TOLD A LOT OF VEHICLES THAT DO NOT EVEN COME CLOSE AGAIN PAID FOR BUT WHAT DO WE WANT TO DO? LEAVE THEM ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TO LEAVE THEM ON THE INTERSTATE OR LEAVE THEM ON RILEY PARK LIKE. SURELY YOU'VE SEEN ONE SITTING THERE THAT SET FOR A WHILE AND WHILE AND WILD AND ONE OF OUR COMPANIES THE LARGER STUFF HAS TO DO THIS. MEANWHILE, ACTUALLY RESOLUTION BECAUSE APPARENTLY THERE WAS ANOTHER BILL IN 2017. HAD CHANGED A NUMBER OF THE BASE AND THEN.

AUTHORIZED AMENDMENTS TO IT TO BE ADOPTED BY RESOLUTION AND THEN FOLLOW UP WITH THE RESOLUTION IN 2018 CHANGED A FEW MORE OF THE RATE SO IT LOOKS LIKE 2017 BUILD 2017 9 84. APPROVAL RATE INCREASES FOR GOING AND RECOVERING BRAIDS DUE TO AN INCREASE IN EXPENSES FOR EQUIPMENT, INSURANCE, TAXES AND FUEL. UM. THERE WAS SOME CONFUSION ABOUT A WINCHING PROVISIONS. UM AND THEN, IT SAYS, WHEREAS CURRENTLY THE MAXIMUM STORAGE OF ANY CAR OR PICKUP TRUCK REMOVED FROM PRIVATE PROPERTIES $30 PER DAY. FOR THE RECORD COMPANY REQUESTS TO THE TRANSPORTATION LICENSING COMMISSION, WHICH WAS APPROVED THE STORAGE FEE SHOULD BE INCREASED FROM $30 TO $40 PER DAY TO REFLECT INCREASING EXPENSES FOR EQUIPMENT. INSURANCE TAXES AND FUEL, WHEREAS AMENDMENTS TO 2017 9 84 MAYBE PROOF RESOLUTION. WHERE YEAH, THAT'S THAT'S ALL THE SUBSTANTIVE PORTION OF THE RECITALS. CAN LOOK AT THE 2017 BILL. IS THAT ALL THAT CHANGED? WAS IT LOOKS LIKE MORE CHANGED IN 2017.

UH, WHAT DID I JUST SAY? 17 94 THANK YOU. MR MITCHELL. I CAN'T REMEMBER WAS PRESENT AT THE LAST TIME. THERE WAS A REQUEST FOR US TO CONSIDER THE INCREASES, BUT. AND I LIKE MR NOW I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR REGULAR APPEARANCE BEFORE US. USUALLY. I KNOW HOW KIND CONSUMING THAT IS. IT COULD BE REGULATED HERE BEFORE, SO I REALLY APPRECIATE IT. AND I APPRECIATE EVERYTHING YOU'RE PRESENTED JUST TODAY. I JUST DON'T REMEMBER. HAVING THE SAME HESITATION THE LAST TIME IT MAY BE THAT SOMETHING FREE. I'M SURE THAT THERE ARE, UH THAT THAT'S YOUR CONCERN, AND I UNDERSTAND WHY, BUT IT'S NOT LIKE A WOULD GET A REGULAR INCREASE EVERY YEAR, WHICH YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE. SOME OF YOU MAY REMEMBER. WE TRIED TO DO THAT. AT ONE TIME WHERE THERE WAS A SMALL RIVER INCREASE EVERY YEAR, AND WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO WORRY WITH THIS. BUT IF YOU GO THIS MANY YEARS, AND HOW MANY YEARS AGO WELL BEFORE THERE WERE CHANGES AGAIN. AND AS EVERYTHING CHANGES IN NETWORK TREMENDOUSLY EVERY DAY. YES, YOU ARE VERY WELL. NO, JUST.

YOU KNOW, TRYING TO LOCATE THE RENTAL PROPERTY FOR TWO DRIVERS FROM OUT OF STATE TO MOVE IN. IN JUSTIFIED, UH, THREE BEDROOM RENTAL. I THINK THE CHEAPEST WE WERE ABLE TO FIND AND. NEITHER ONE OF THE DRIVERS WOULD ACCEPT THESE PROPERTIES. WAS 13 TO $1500 A MONTH JUST TO GET A VERY, VERY. ORDERED RENTAL PRICE OF A PROPERTY LIVE ON TO START OUT. JUST TO GET RENTAL PROPERTY IN NASHVILLE ABOUT $2000 THAT SOMETHING CAN RECORD THREE BEDROOM. TO BRING SOMEONE IN FROM OUT OF STATE. YOU KNOW, WE ALMOST HAVE TO HELP HIM IN SOME WAY BECAUSE WE BELIEVE EXHAUSTED. THE SOURCES IN THIS AREA IS FIGHTING DRIVERS. I MEAN, THAT THE GENTLEMAN CAN VOUCH FOR IS WHAT WE'VE GOT TO TRY TO TELL YOU. HOW MANY ADS WERE RUNNING RIGHT NOW. YOU WOULD JUST NOT BELIEVE. HOW MANY CITIES I RUN THE HEADS. HAVE ANY RELOCATION FEES. WE DO TRY TO GET THEM TO MOVE IN. I HAVE NEVER WORKED SO HARD TO TRACK TIME. PROBABLY SOME MORE. AND I'VE BEEN IN BUSINESS MOST OF MY LIFE, SO IT'S JUST, UH, I KNOW IT'S THE CHANGING TIMES THAT WE'RE IN RIGHT NOW.

SOMETHING GOT TO CHANGE TO MAKE IT WHERE PEOPLE ARE ENJOY WORKING AND WANT TO WORK AGAIN. BECAUSE WE'RE GONNA WHERE STROKE OF EVERYTHING BEFORE. DID RECITALS ARE PRETTY SHORT AND SWEET, MOSTLY REFER TO THE HEARING BEFORE THE TLC. WHICH RECOGNIZED THAT BUSINESS EXPENSES FOR EQUIPMENT, INSURANCE, TAXES AND FUEL HAVE INCREASED SINCE THE RECORD IN TOWING SERVICES RATES WERE SET IN 2012. SO APPARENTLY BEFORE 2017 THEY HAD BEEN RAISED IN FIVE YEARS. UM AND THEN IT SAYS THE TRANSPORTATION LICENSING COMMISSION APPROVED AN INCREASE IN RECORD AND TOWING SERVICE RATES ON JUNE 22 7 2017, SO IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE TO LOOK AT THE MINUTES FOR THE JUNE 22 2017 MEETING AND SEE MORE DETAIL ABOUT WHAT THE RATIONALE WAS THAT INCREASE.

JUST A LAYOUT OF WHAT THE INCREASES WERE. UM YES. IN THE BODY OF IT. LIKE THEM. HAVE TO LIKE REFERENCE THE CODE SECTIONS, WHICH IS HARD TO DO WHILE APPARENTLY A $125 FEET FOR SOMETHING WAS INCREASED TO 1 35. 1 $35 FOR SOMETHING WAS INCREASED TO 1 45 1 $45 FEE WAS INCREASED TO 1 55. UM OR TWO DIFFERENT 1 $45 FEES WERE INCREASED TO 1 55. I CAN'T WITHOUT. IT'S JUST REFERS TO THE SECTIONS OF THE CODE WITHOUT CROSS REFERENCING. TELL YOU WHAT DOES. THINGS ARE ALL FOUR, UM, AND THEN MODEST INCREASES. ONE OF THEM MAY HAVE BEEN DECREASED. FAMILIAR THESE FEES WERE JUST OCCASIONAL THINGS THAT OCCURRED JUST EVERY NOW AND SUCH AS THEIR BAGS AND THE WAGING. IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU DO WITH EVERY CAR THAT COMES IN. THE GENERAL EITHER. ARE YOU JUST YOUR GENERAL TOWING? IS YOUR MAIN ONES THAT WE DO CONCERNS MOST OF THE. CITIZENS IN NASHVILLE THAT THEY HAD TO HAVE A VEHICLE TOLD YOU CAN SEE WHAT THE INCREASE IS ONLY IT.

FROM THE IT SAYS IT DOES SAY THAT ON ABOUT 58 30. THE $3.50 PER MILE RATE WAS INCREASED TO $4.50 PER MILE. WE'RE LOOKING AT 60. I MEAN, THERE'S A TABLE. WITH DIFFERENT KIND OF RAPES FOR TOAD AND WRECK. LARGER VEHICLES. I DON'T KNOW THAT I CAN TELL WHAT IT WAS BEFORE BECAUSE IT'S JUST SUBSTITUTED. UH, B TWO E. WAS INCREASED FROM $3000 TO $5000. THAT'S A PRETTY BIG INCREASE. IS THEIR BAGS. WHATEVER BAG IS ABOUT $3000.28 $2900 FOR ONE BAG. ANOTHER 3/5 OR 215. FT INCREASED TO 3 15. FOR C 1 35 OR 35 INCREASED TO 60 FOR C TWO D. SO THAT'S A PRETTY BIG INCREASE. MM. $175 FEE FOR C THREE INCREASED TO 2 50.

UM. UNDER G $55 WAS INCREASED TO $75 AND $140 WAS INCREASED $275. H, UM. WHAT WOULD WHAT ANALYSIS WENT INTO YOUR. JUSTIFICATION FOR THE RACING CREEK PROPOSED RATE INCREASE. I MEAN, WHAT KIND OF CALCULATION DID YOU DO? YOU YOUR PRIOR HISTORY WITH EACH OF THE TYPES OF. CHARGES TO SEE YOU KNOW WHERE YOU MAKING MONEY FROM? LIKE, FOR EXAMPLE, YOU USE OF THE AIRBAGS WAS A GOOD EXAMPLE. YOU CAN. YEAH. WHEN YOU GET TO THE POINT WHERE YOU'RE. YOUR BANK ACCOUNT STAYS THE SAME THING EVERY MONTH. YOU'RE NOT MAKING MONEY. THAT'S WHERE IT GOT TO THIS MORNING. WELL MY QUESTION IS A LITTLE MORE SPECIFIC BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY. I MEAN, SOME OF THEIRS VARIATIONS AND, YOU KNOW, LINE ITEM CHARGES, SO I'M LIKE, FOR EXAMPLE.

LET'S JUST GO WITH THE REAL BASIC ONE. OKAY? YOU'RE PROPOSING TO INCREASE ALL. TOWING AND RECOVERY, UH, FOR A NORMAL VEHICLE FROM 1 75 TO 50. WHAT ANALYSIS WENT INTO THAT PROPOSED RATE INCREASE TO PRESENT TO US THAT WE NEED TO ALLOW AN INCREASED IT TO 50. WELL HOW A PATROL IS NEARLY THAT MUCH, BUT NOW AND EVERY ONE OF THEIR CALLS RIGHT NOW TO 25 BEEN NOWHERE. HERE'S ANY MILEAGE IS TRADITIONALLY THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS ALSO THE. THE GENERAL COST. WE LOOK AT THE GENERAL INCREASE WE HAD IN THE PERCENTAGE OF THE INCREASES WE HAD, WHICH IS OVER 30% OF INCREASE WE HAD AND ALL OF OUR EXPENSES NOT TO SAY THAT THE COST OF THE TRUCKS IN THE REPAIRS. THE TRUCKS. IS IT'S HARD TO DETERMINE THE EXACT CAUSE OF IT BECAUSE WE CAN'T GET THEM FIXED.

WE'VE GOT SO MANY TRUCKS SITTING NOW WE CAN'T WE CAN'T GET PUT TOGETHER. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL END SOON I SURE HOPE IT DOES. BECAUSE WHEN YOU'VE GOT TRUCKS ARE JUST A FEW YEARS OLD THAT ARE NOT. OPERATIONAL YOU'RE PAYING INSURANCE ON EVERY DAY THAT YOU KNOW YOU HELPED IT ENDS QUICKLY. BUT JUST JUST THINGS LIKE THAT CHIPS FOR THE COMPUTERS. WE'VE GOT TRUCKS DOWN FOR WAITING MONTHS FOR CHIP FOR COMPUTER. THAT TRUCK IS ZERO PROFITABLE TIME. SO YOU CAN'T TAKE YOUR INSURANCE OFF OF IT BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS IF IT SOMETHING HAPPENS IN THE TRUCK. YOU GET STOLEN OR HE GETS. RUN INTO OR ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN TO US. SO YOU STILL MAINTAIN YOUR INSURANCE ON. THERE'S A LOT OF HIDDEN EXPENSES. AND OPERATING DAILY, ESPECIALLY THESE LEVELS THAT KEEPS YOU WHERE YOU CAN MAINTAIN. SERVICE THAT WE GIVE. WE WERE ABLE TO ONE TIME ON WAGES. OF COURSE THEY THEY ENDED. WE WERE ABLE TO IT ONE TIME THAT HELPED US BE HONEST WITH THAT WE HAD THAT I'M NOT SO SURE WE'D STILL BE OPERATE.

HEARING HERE IS RATE INCREASES ARE TOO HELP YOU. GET THROUGH THIS PANDEMIC AND LABOR SHORTAGES THAT WE'RE SUFFERING THROUGH RIGHT NOW. YES, AND I KNOW THE FEDERAL FUNDS THAT WERE BEING ISSUED OR TO HELP SMALL BUSINESSES. DO THAT, RATHER THAN ASKING THE COMMISSION TO RAISE YOUR RATES. THAT'S CORRECT. YES. I'M WONDERING IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY GOTTEN. SOME FEDERAL FUNDING TO BE ABLE TO ALL SET THESE LABOUR SHORTAGES. WE DID GET ONE CREASE IN PRICES OF VARIOUS DIFFERENT THINGS. WE WERE ABLE TO GET ONE LITTLE RELIEF, WHICH IS THE FIRST RELIEF I'VE EVER EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE.

EVERY TIME YOU THINK WE WERE ABLE TO GET ONE RELIEF THAT HELPS US WHERE THE WAGES OF COURSE IT ONE TIME. BECAUSE IF THINGS DO SUBSIDE. I DON'T THINK YOU'RE GOING TO COME BACK AND ASK US TO REDUCE THE RATE INCREASES. WELL THAT WOULD BE UNUSUAL TO, BUT YEAH, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I'M NOT A GREEDY PERSON. I WOULD DEFINITELY BE WILLING TO DO ANYTHING REASONABLE. IT'S NOT A SITUATION WHERE IF IT DID CHANGES, I WOULD NOT BE IN A POSITION TO DO THAT. IT'S A LITTLE OVER 30% OF LIKE 31.7% OF WHAT IT INCREASED. DO A LOT OFFACTORS, BUT.

I GUESS IN MY MIND IF MOST OF THESE WERE AROUND A 30% INCREASE, THEN THEY. IT COULD MAKE MORE SENSE OF IT. BUT IT IS THE FACT THAT SOME OF THEM ARE POSTED 50 16. I HEARD THEM. WHAT THEY USED TO LEAST, IS WHERE I'M STRONG. WITH SOME OF THOSE LIKE THAT, LIKE SOME OF THOSE ARE JUST OCCASIONALLY YOU SELECT THE ARABIC AND THE WINCHING. THAT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS. BUT JUST EVERY NOW AND THEN, AND WHEN YOU TAKE THE WINCHING THE EXPENSES FOR THE WINCH CABLES AND THE WINCH MOTORS AND.

AND THE TIME INVOLVED IN DOING IT WHETHER HE SAID A GENTLEMAN OUT IN THE VEHICLES 50 TO 125 YARDS OFF THE ROAD. HE'S NOT OUT THERE AN HOUR, TWO HOURS 103 OR FOUR HOURS TO DO THIS SOMETIMES. AND QUITE OFTEN, WE HAVE TO SEND A SKID STEER AFTER. TO EVEN GETTING CLOSER TO THE TRUCK SO WE CAN EVEN DO THIS. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO GET THEM INDIVIDUALLY. YOU KNOW THOSE SENSES ARE. AND THAT'S THE CONFUSING PART OF THIS IS THOSE ARE JUST OCCASIONAL ONES. IT'S NOT LIKE SO IF EVERY ONE OF Y'ALL HAD A TOW, MAYBE ONE OF Y'ALL WOULD HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THAT, RATHER THAN EVERY ONE OF THEM. GETTING THAT EXPENSE INCREASE. IT WOULD BE. THE GENERAL THANK, JUST OCCASION OCCASIONALLY HAPPENS. IT DOESN'T HAPPEN WITH EVERY TUB THEIR BAGS. WE DON'T USE IT ON EVERY TIME WE DO ONE OF THEM, PROBABLY THE LAST. I'LL TELL YOU THE LAST 10 RECOVERIES THAT WE DID ON THE BIG TRUCKS. WE USE AIRBAGS TWICE. WHEN YOU CONSIDER THAT THE TIME THE OPEN THE INTERSTATE OFFLOADING THE TRUCK ON THE SIDE OF INTERSTATE CAN TAKE A DAY TO TWO DAYS.

AND IF WE CAN AIR BAG IT CAN TAKE 2 TO 5 HOURS. AND THE DECREASE IN THE SECONDARY REX. IT HAPPENED BECAUSE OF THAT, RICK BEING ON THE INTERSTATE. THE TIME WE GET OFF THE INTERSTATE QUICKER INCREASES. DECREASES THE CHANCE OF ADDITIONAL ACCIDENTS TREMENDOUSLY. AND BELIEVE ME, I'VE SEEN AS MANY AS 10 ACCIDENTS OCCUR BECAUSE OF ONE RIG SITTING ON THE INTERSTATE. I'M ALSO SYMPATHETIC TO THE INDIVIDUAL WHOSE CAR GETS TOWED IN HIS. STORY TO BE. IT'S GOING FROM $40 TO $100. 150% INCREASE. UM CAR SITS THERE TO IT TO IT. TWO OR THREE DAYS, AND THEY'RE UP TO $300, AND THEY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO GET THEIR CAR OUT. IT'S TRUE, BUT MOST OF OUR PICKED UP WITHIN TWO HOURS IF IT'S. AND THAT'S $100 FOR TWO HOURS. JUST NO CHARGE TWO HOURS, OKAY? MAYBE THREE OR FOUR OR FIVE HOURS IF IT'S 20 UP TO 24 HOURS AFTER THE 24 HOURS, IT'S ONE DAY STORAGE.

OKAY SO THE 1ST 24 HOURS. IT'S FREE. NO SHE'S THE FIRST TWO HOURS DESTROYED. 24 HOURS. 20 STORAGE. YEAH. SO. TWO HOURS. ONE MINUTE UP TO 24 HOURS IS $100 WERE NOT THAT WAY WAY. I PROBABLY GET MORE STORAGE WIND YOU COULD POSSIBLY IMAGINE, BUT I AM SYMPATHETIC. YES, SIR. I AGREE. IS IN AN ACCIDENT THERE IN THE HOSPITAL A COUPLE OF DAYS THE FAMILY GETS AROUND AND GETTING THE CAR OUT AND FIVE DAYS OR SO IN THERE, $500. THAT'S A LOT OF MONEY. YES, SIR. IT IS. YOU KNOW, IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF AN INCENTIVE TO COME ON AND GET THEM OUT OF THERE TOO BECAUSE WE DON'T WE ADVERTISE OUR PRICES. WE DON'T MAKE IT VERY CLEAR THAT THEY NEED TO BE PICKED UP. A LOT OF TIMES WERE CAUGHT OFF YOU.

SORRY BUT OFTEN YOU'RE NOT THINKING ABOUT THE STORAGE FEE WHEN YOU'RE DEALING WITH. OH YEAH, I AGREE. AND THE OTHER SIDE OF IT IS IF YOU'VE GOT 10 CARS SITTING THERE AND STORAGE, YOU'RE MAKING $1000 A DAY. AND THAT'S JUST FOR THE ONES THAT ARE UNDER £7000. YES, SIR. MOST OF THEM ARE UNDER THAT 20 YOU'VE GOT YOU KNOW HOW MUCH OF THE DAY. AND THEN THERE'S THE CARS THAT ARE DAMAGED CAN'T BE DRIVEN AND YOU'VE GOT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT. REPAIR SHOP TO GET THEM TO WHICH TAKES A DAY OR TWO AND THEN INSURANCES. MOST CLEARLY WHEN WE TOLD THEM INSURANCE DOESN'T PAY $100 A DAY FOR STORAGE ON WRECKED VEHICLE. USUALLY WE WORK WITH WHATEVER THE INSURANCE IS, UH. WE WORK CLOSELY WITH THE INSURANCE COMPANIES. MOST EVERYTHING. AND I'M OBVIOUSLY YOU'RE RIGHT TO DISCUSS AND CONTINUE. UH. IT MAY MAKE SOME SENSE TO ALLOW. STAFF GO BACK WITH THE COMPANY'S LET'S LET'S SEE IF WE CAN GATHER SOME COMPARABLES AND PRODUCING COMPARISON. AND, UM BRING BACK THE FINE. OKAY? I MEAN, DON'T YEAH. YOU PUT THEM OFF BECAUSE AGAIN, I THINK THEY DID IT INCREASE AGAIN.

THERE'S ALWAYS A DEBATE ABOUT INCREASES. WHAT SHOULD BE A MATTER OF THAT AMOUNT? WELL, I MEAN, THE ONLY THING I'VE HEARD. TERMS OF. ACTUAL SUPPORT FOR AN INCREASE IS MAYBE. 30 OR 35% ACROSS THE BOARD. UH, TO, UH, THAT WOULD JUSTIFY YOU KNOW AN INCREASE AND THAT'S STILL SUBSTANTIAL. PROBABLY MAKING THAT MOTION YOU MIGHT NEED WITH THEIR HELP IN TERMS OF. YOU HAVE THIS VERY SPECIFIC SECTION 50 TO SOMEBODY WHO KIND OF HAVE TO GO THROUGH AND DO THE MATH AND FIGURE OUT WHAT AN INCREASE OF 30 OR 35% WOULD MEAN FOR EACH OF THESE. RATHER DIFFERENT KINDS OF CHARGES IN SOME CASES. UM SO, UM. I MEAN, I THINK YOU COULD MAKE THAT MOTION TO RECOMMEND THAT PATINO. RIGHT YOU MIGHT WANT TO GO AHEAD AND ASK TO SEE THEIR BRIEF LIKE THE REWRITTEN RED LINE AT THE NEXT MEETING. AND THEN KIND OF VALIDATES THAT. YEAH, THAT'S WHAT YOU MEANT. AND I ALSO THINK THAT IF THERE'S A RECOMMENDATION STATION COMING FROM MR FIELDS AND HIS STAFF.

THAT IT. ONE WOULD HAVE A BETTER APPEARANCE ON THE RECORD THAT WERE THAT IT'S BEEN LOOKED AT CAREFULLY INTO COMING FROM RECOMMENDATION FROM THE DIRECTOR. AGAIN SURE, MIDDLE. I'VE ALWAYS APPRECIATED YOUR APPEARANCE HERE, AND I'M NOT. SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT IT ALREADY, BUT ALL RIGHT, BUT. YOU ARE THE ONE WHO'S GOING TO BENEFIT FROM THIS. YEAH I HOPE SO. YEAH AND TO HAVE SOMEONE WHO CAN COME AFTER LOOK AT THE NUMBERS WITH YOU AND COME BACK TO US WITH THE RECOMMENDATIONS. THINK WITH PROBABLY GARRETT, GO. FURTHER AT METRO COUNCIL, THEN IT MIGHT JUST, UH THAT'S WHY WE HAVE TO. WE HAVE TO WORK WITH THE EMERGING COMPANIES TO DEVELOP PLANS. THAT'S WHAT THE COMMISSION WOULD LIKE. WITH THAT IDEA. AND I DON'T THINK THAT REQUIRE ANY ACTION TODAY OTHER THAN TELLING ME TO GO.

YEAH, THEY DO THAT. BUT IT HAS BEEN HELPFUL TODAY TO EXPLORE THIS AND LOOK AT IT CAREFULLY. MM I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME. WE'RE MORE WILLING TO DO THAT. THANK YOU. MY GOODNESS, RACHEL. MISS FIELDS. I APPRECIATE YOUR WILLINGNESS TO TAKE THAT ON YOUR SUGGESTION. MHM CERTAINLY. COLLECTIVE FOLLOW THE WILL OF THE CONNECTION. OUR NEXT IS WE'VE GOT A PRESENTATION OF METRICS FOR FUTURE FLEET INCREASES OR DECREASES FOR S U. M. D S. ONE OF THE THINGS WHEN THEY ISSUE MDS SCOOTERS AS WE LIKE TO CALL THEM AND ELECTRIC BIKES, UH, THERE THERE ARE A COUPLE THINGS THAT, UH. THAT NEED TO BE DONE. ONE THERE ARE NO METRICS IN THE ORDINANCE REQUIRES THE COMMISSION TO ESTABLISH A PROCESS BY WHICH FLEETS COULD BE INCREASED OR DECREASED. UH AND THEY ALSO HAVE A PILOT PROJECT. THEY'LL PROBABLY WANT TO MAKE IT ALL IN ONE KIND OF HAVE A PILOT PROJECT THEY'VE BEEN WORKING WITH WE GO AND THE TRUMP DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. UM SO THEY.

AND ORIGINAL INTENTION WAS COME WITH A RURAL REQUEST TODAY, AND I SUGGESTED IT MAY MAKE SOME SENSE TO HAVE A CONVERSATION VERY MUCH LIKE YOU JUST HAD WITH THE EMERGENCY COMPANIES TO TALK ABOUT. WHAT THEY'RE SEEING AS THE WAY FORWARD IF THEY'RE ALREADY FLEET INCREASES, AND, UH AND ALSO THAT PILOT PROJECT. AND I THINK THEY'RE ALL REPRESENTED. THANKS FOR HAVING ME TODAY. IT'S UH I'M SAM REED. I'M REPRESENTING BIRD. WE HAVE FOLKS WITH SPIN AND LIME HERE AS WELL. UM. EXCITED TO BE BACK IN FRONT OF YOU. IT'S BEEN SEVERAL MONTHS SINCE WE'VE TALKED ABOUT OUR FAVORITE TOPIC OF SCOOTERS. UM. IN THAT TIME WE'VE BEEN MEETING MONTHLY WITH THE CITY, SOMETIMES MORE OFTEN WITH BILLY REPRESENTATIVES OF N DOT METRO POLICE WITH WE GO AS WELL AND SOMETHING I WANT TO SPEAK ABOUT HERE MOMENTARILY ABOUT THAT. WE'VE BEEN COORDINATING ON MESSAGING. TWO RIDERS.

WE'VE BEEN COLLABORATING ON BIG EVENTS LIKE JULY 4TH. UM WE'VE BEEN DOING OUR VERY BEST TO RESPOND VERY QUICKLY TO ISSUES. UM THAT ARISE. UH AND. I'M HERE TO REPORT THAT RIDERSHIP IS VERY, VERY STRONG IN NASHVILLE. IN FACT, WE'VE BEEN SHARING SOME OF THAT WITH THE CITY, AND NOW THEY HAVE, UH, THE POPULIST, UM. PLATFORM IN PLACE OF INDEPENDENTLY VERIFY A LOT OF THIS, UM, THE NUMBERS THAT WE'VE BEEN SHARING, BUT WE LOOKED AT CITIES ACROSS THE WORLD WITH. 500 SCOOTERS ARE LESS AND THERE'S ABOUT 50 OF THEM WHERE WE CURRENTLY OPERATE. UH, AND NASHVILLE'S NUMBER TWO IN TOTAL RIDES AMONGST THOSE 50 AND NUMBER. FOUR IN, UH, RIDES DEPLOYED FOR PER VEHICLE. THIRD DAY, SO RIGHT AT THE VERY, VERY TOP OF RIDERSHIP ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. UM UH, THE. LAST TIME WE WERE HERE WE INCREASE THE HOURS OF OPERATION OF SCOOTERS FROM NINE PM TO 11. PM MORE. JUST QUICKLY REPORT WHAT WE'RE SEEING AS A RESULT OF THAT.

OBVIOUSLY DIFFERED ABILITY FROM WHAT THEY'VE HEARD ON THE CITY SIDE. BUT IN TERMS OF OUR WRITER INCIDENT REPORTS, WE'VE SEEN ABSOLUTELY NO INCREASE IN ACCIDENTS OR INCIDENTS, IN FACT, ARE. OUR SELF REPORTING ON INCIDENTS, YOU KNOW, SINCE WE'VE HAD THOSE INCREASE HOURS REMAIN EXACTLY FLAT, WHICH IT'S FAR LESS THAN 1% OF IT OF. ANY SCOOTER RIGHTWARD INCIDENT IS REPORTED UNDERSTANDING THAT THAT IS NOT PERFECT. THIS SELF REPORTING MECHANISM THROUGH THE APP, BUT CERTAINLY IN TERMS OF WHAT WE WHAT WE'VE HEARD FROM THE CITY AS WELL. AND FROM POLICE. WE'VE NOT SEEN ANY INCREASE IN INCIDENTS. SO THE 11 P.M. I THINK WE SORT OF WANTED TO WAIT AND SEE WHAT THE IMPACT OF THAT BEFORE REVISITING THAT, AND SO HOPEFULLY YOU HERE IN THE MONTHS AHEAD, THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING WE COULD REVISIT GIVEN.

FACT THAT WE HAVE HAD A PRETTY GOOD RECORD IN THAT REGARD. UM THE FIRST THING I WANT TO TALK ABOUT, OBVIOUSLY WAS THE UNFINISHED BUSINESS THAT BILLY REFERRED TO REGARDING THE FUTURE INCREASES AND DECREASES AND WHY DON'T NEED TO REMIND THIS. COMMISSION THAT WE THE LAST TIME WE WERE DOING CLEAN INCREASES AND DECREASES. UM. THERE WAS SOME ISSUES WITH THE WAY THAT THAT WAS WORKING, I THINK, AND IT LED TO A LOT OF PROBLEMS. UM I THINK THAT THERE WAS A YOU KNOW, WE WERE INCREASING BY TOO MUCH EACH TIME.

UM THERE WAS VERY LITTLE DISCRETION AND I THINK NUMBER OF THE. MEMBERS EXPRESSED THAT THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE REAL AUTHORITY TO I REALLY COULDN'T SAY YES OR NO, IT WAS SORT OF. YOU KNOW, BUT DONE BY THE IF WE IF WE MET THESE METRICS, THEN WE WOULD WE WOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE A FLEET INCREASE, AND THERE WAS VERY LITTLE BY WAY OF SORT OF PERFORMANCE METRICS RIGHT THAT. HOW ARE WE DOING WHERE WE'RE DOING A GOOD JOB BUT WE'RE BEING RESPONSIVE. IT WAS SIMPLY WHERE WE HAVING THE. RIGHT AMOUNT OF RODS AND THEREFORE WE WILL BE ENTITLED TO A VERY, VERY LARGE INCREASE UNDER THE PREVIOUS STATUTE. IT WAS 250 EACH TIME THAT WE THINK WE WOULD ALL AGREE. THAT'S FAR FAR TOO MANY. AND SO WHAT WE WANTED TO PROPOSE IS BOTH, UH WAY OF INCREASING IN A WAY OF DECREASING OUR FLEET SIZES OR AT LEAST THROW IT OUT FOR DISCUSSION AND GET YOUR THOUGHTS OVER THE NEXT MONTH AND POTENTIALLY LOOK AT.

davidson county

PUTTING SOMETHING IN PLACE AT NEXT MONTH'S MEETING. UM AND WHAT WE WHAT WE HAVE WHAT? WE HAVE PROPOSED WHAT WE'VE SHARED WITH THE CITY AND I WILL SHARE THIS IN WRITING WITH YOU LATER IS THAT COMPANIES WOULD BE ALLOWED TO INCREASE THEIR FLEET BY NO MORE THAN 50 SCOOTERS AT A TIME. UPON AN AFFIRMATIVE VOTE OF YOUR BODY.

UM IF THE COMPANY SHOWS TWO THINGS ONE WOULD BE THE COMPANY IS IN COMPLIANCE WITH CURRENT REGULATIONS OF THE TLC WITH REGARD TO SCOOTER OPERATIONS, RESPONSIVENESS. AND OTHER COMPLIANCE MEASURES THAT MAY BE ATTRACTED BY TIME TO TIME AND THAT. SHOWING THAT OUR CURRENT FLEET IS NOT MEETING WRITER DEMAND BECAUSE THE FLEET IS AVERAGING TWO OR MORE RIDES PER DAY OF OPERATION ON AVERAGE ON OPERATION AND THAT NUMBER TWO. OBVIOUSLY, WE THINK THERE'S SOME FLEXIBILITY IN THEIR 2.5. YOU KNOW SOME POTENTIALLY MORE THINK FOR THE FLEET DECREASE? WE WOULD WE WOULD SUGGEST, UM, SOMETHING VERY, VERY SIMILAR TO THE DECREASE, WOULD, UH.

COULD BE DONE BY UP TO 50 SCOOTERS AT A TIME BY AN AFFIRMATIVE VOTE OF YOUR BODY IF WE'RE NOT IN COMPLIANCE WITH CURRENT REGULATIONS OF THE TLC. LOOTING OPERATION RESPONSIVE NO, THE COMPLIANCE MEASURES THAT YOU MAY ADOPT. AND WE FAILED TO CORRECT THOSE MEASURES AND SHOWING THAT THE CURRENT FLEET IS OVER DEPLOYED BECAUSE WE'RE AVERAGING LESS THAN ONE RIDE PER DAY.

AND SO. THAT WAS WHAT WE WANTED TO PRESENT TO YOU ALL GET YOUR THOUGHTS AGAIN. WHAT OUR GOAL REALLY IS HERE IS TO REWARD GOOD BEHAVIOR AND PUNISH BAD BEHAVIOR, WHICH IS SORT OF WHAT WE WANT TO SET UP REALLY WITH THE RFE. UM, SLOW CONTROLLED GROWTH. NOTHING IN HERE WOULD REQUIRE YOU TO LEAD US TO HAVE ALL 50 EACH TIME. UM NOTHING WOULD BE REQUIRED IN HERE WOULD REQUIRE YOU TO APPROVE THEM. UM, IT GIVES YOU A LOT OF DISCRETION. UM AND ALL OF THE NUMBERS NOW WOULD BE ABLE TO BE INDEPENDENTLY VERIFIED THROUGH THE POPULIST PROGRAM. AND SO THAT WAS WHAT WE WANTED TO PUT ON THE TABLE FOR DISCUSSION AND SEE IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT WE'RE MISSING. YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE OTHER THINGS WE'VE TALKED ABOUT IS YOU KNOW WHERE THEY CAN BE DEPLOYED. UM UH, YOU KNOW, WOULD CERTAIN NUMBER OF THE EACH INCREASE ONLY A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE COULD BE DEPLOYED IN THE DOWNTOWN ZONE FOR IT'S OTHER THINGS WE WILL BE OPEN TO, BUT I THINK, GIVEN THE FACT THAT WE HAVE VERY HIGH RIDERSHIP HERE, IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO AT LEAST CONSIDER, AS WE NOW ARE SORT OF ABOUT 56 MONTHS INTO THE FIRST YEAR.

GOING AS A NUMBER OF RIDES PER DAY. YES IT CHANGES, OBVIOUSLY ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS OR RIDERSHIP ON THE WEEKENDS AS FAR FAR HIGHER. IN FACT, OUR RIDERSHIP ON THE WEEKENDS WE CAN SEE 567 SOMETIMES DURING TIMES. PER DAY ARE RIDERSHIP DURING THE WEEK AS MUCH LOWER, MORE LIKE IN THE 1 TO 2 RIDES GETS ME TO MY QUESTION. YOU SAID THAT YOU WERE PROPOSING. TO GO UP IF IT'S ONE RIDE TWO RIDES PER DAY. THAT PER SCOOTER, RIGHT? YES OKAY. AND THEN OKAY OR 2.5 FLEXIBLE THERE OR GO DOWN IF IT'S LESS THAN ONE RIGHT FOR DAY.

NOW HOW ARE WE GOING TO MEASURE THAT AVERAGE OF ONE RIDE PER DAY? BECAUSE YOU JUST SAID, VARY SO MUCH BETWEEN THE WEEKENDS AND SAY MONDAY AFTERNOON? YEAH. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO USE FOR YOUR AVERAGE PRIOR 21 DAY AVERAGE. OKAY? WHICH WOULD YOU KNOW, OBVIOUSLY HAVE WEEKDAYS. POOR NUMBERS DOWN WEEKENDS. PUT OUR NUMBERS UP. AND I'M GUESSING. THAT YOU PROBABLY ARE AVERAGING MORE THAN ONE RIDE PER DAY FOR THIS 21 DAY PERIOD. THERE'S NO QUESTION. I THINK WE WOULD MEET THESE. YOU'RE GONNA BE COMING IN ASKING FOR ADDITIONAL 50 NOT REDUCING IT BY FIVE. RIGHT BASED ON HOW THINGS ARE GOING. ABSOLUTELY BUT I THINK THE CONTEXT THERE IS IMPORTANT RIGHT AND WE'RE ONE OF THE HIGHEST RIDERSHIP CITIES. LIKE I SAID, IN ALL THE WORLD, SO IT'S THIS IS, UM. YOU KNOW THE PRESSURES ON US A LITTLE BIT TO TRY TO MAKE SURE WE CAN MEET WHAT WE. ARE SEEING A LOT OF UNMET DEMAND OUT THERE. AND WHAT IS THE PERIOD OF TIME THAT YOU WOULD BE COMING BACK? WHAT'S A PERIOD OF TIME YOU'RE PROPOSING TO BECOMING BACK TO ASK FOR EITHER AN INCREASE OF 50 OR DECREASE OF 50.

FOR A YEAR. UH, SO. WE WOULD FIRST HAVE TO THE COMMISSION WOULD HAVE TO ADOPT THE RULE WHATEVER THE RULE IS, AND THEN AT SUBSEQUENT MEETINGS, WE WOULD OBVIOUSLY HAVE TO PUT. THE COMMISSION ON NOTICE THAT WE WOULD EACH INDIVIDUAL COMPANY WOULD LIKE TO UM. INCREASE THEIR SCOOTERS. THEY ASKED FOR NO MORE THAN 50 AND THEN THE COMMISSION, USING THOSE METRICS OF WHICH IT ADOPTS THEM WOULD DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT WE'VE. BOTH FULFILLED DEMAND REQUIREMENT. AND ARE WE IN SUBSTANTIAL? ARE WE IN FULL COMPLIANCE AND AGAIN WITH. YOUR FULL DISCRETION TO SAY YES OR NO? BUT WOULD YOU BE COMING BACK EVERY POTENTIALLY EVERY MONTH OR EVERY YEAR OR EVERY SIX MONTHS, OR WHAT? YOUR WHAT YOUR ENVISION. I MEAN, I THINK DURING THIS DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS, AND IF WE SEE RIDERSHIP LIKE WE'VE SEEN THIS LAST SUMMER. AND YES, I WOULD THINK WE'D BE WE'D BE BACK. YOU KNOW, EVERY MONTH OR TO HAVE A LOOK AT THIS. BUT AGAIN, YOU KNOW THE PROGRAM RESTARTS EVERY YEAR, SO WE'RE ALMOST HALFWAY THROUGH. I'M AT WORK WERE CERTAINLY THROUGH OUR HIGHEST RIDERSHIP PERIOD OF THE YEAR.

SO AGAIN, THIS IS REALLY JUST. FOR PURPOSES OF DISCUSSION OF HOW WE'RE GOING TO ACTUALLY DETERMINE THIS RULE. AS IS REQUIRED BY THE. RFP AND THE EXISTING STATUTE. HOW'D YOU PICK THE NUMBER? 50? FELT THAT IT WAS VERY, YOU KNOW, LET 10% OR LESS OF OUR CURRENT FLEET, UM, FELT THAT IT WAS. SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD VERY MUCH INCREMENTALLY CONTROL 50 YEARS. PROBABLY WOULDN'T BE NOTICED. UM, ANOTHER 200 WOULD BE UM, CERTAINLY IF IT'S EACH COMPANY SO IT WAS REALLY. I MEAN, LOOK, I'VE BEEN INVOLVED IN THIS SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING AND WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON'T END UP IN A PLACE WHERE THERE'S ALL OF A SUDDEN TOO MANY, AND I THINK THAT'S PART IN PART WHERE WE'VE GONE THROUGH THE PROCESS WE HAVE AND WHAT WE WANT TO BE VERY, VERY UM DELIBERATE AND CAREFUL. AS WE CONTEMPLATE ANY MORE GROWTH OF AT ALL.

HOW DO WE TAKE? YOU'VE GIVEN US ONE FACTOR THAT YOU'RE PROPOSING, WHICH IS THE NUMBER OF RIDES. PER DAY PER UNIT. WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER, LESS TANGIBLE FACTORS LIKE COMMUNITY SENTIMENT? UM. SCOOTERS ON THE GREENWAY OR OR THE POLICE INPUT ABOUT. THAT THEY'RE GREAT THEY'RE HELPING OR THAT THEY'RE NOT IN THE INPUT OF LIKE, LIKE WALK NASHVILLE, WHICH IS A FAVORITE SCOOTER. HOW DO WE FACT? WHAT WOULD BE YOUR PROPOSAL FOR FACTORING IN THOSE LESS TANGIBLE CONSIDERATIONS, RIGHT? I AGAIN AGAIN BY SURE. I THINK IT'S THAT'S YOUR DISCRETION. YOU KNOW I MEAN, I THINK EACH EACH MEMBER COMES WITH THEIR OWN FEELINGS.

YOU KNOW, WE CAN CERTAINLY DESCRIBE WHAT WE'VE DONE IN TERMS OF YOU KNOW? BOOTS ON THE GROUND AND FACTS OF WHAT OUR NUMBERS SAY. AND HOW MANY FOLKS WE HAVE OUT THERE MOVING THINGS AND WHAT WE'RE DOING TO EDUCATE OUR RIDERS. BUT IF YOUR FEELING AT THE WHEN WE'RE REQUESTING. YOU KNOW ADDITIONAL SCOOTERS THEN AND YOU'RE NOT. HAPPY WITH THE PERFORMANCE. THAT'S YOUR DISCRETION AT THAT POINT, RIGHT? I MEAN, I THINK THAT'S WHAT THAT'S IT'S REALLY CRITICAL. I THINK THAT ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE FACTORED IN. AND. I DON'T WANT TO PUT TOO MUCH OF A BURDEN ON THIS COMMISSION. BUT I THINK YOU'RE. YOU'RE CERTAINLY CAPABLE OF REFLECTING THE COMMUNITY SENTIMENT. THAT'S WHY WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE BUILDING.

IN THAT DISCRETION TO THESE RULES THAT WAS LOOKING AT SOME THINGS LIKE THE ADDITIONAL, UH, BIKE SCOOTER LANES THAT. YOU HAVE COORDINATED WITH WITH BIKE WALK. NASHVILLE? YES, AND, UH. AS A LESS TANGIBLE FACTORS TO CONSIDER. SORT OF AS A CARROT IN FRONT OF AS A CARROT TO, UH, POTENTIAL INCREASES. YOU KNOW WHAT? THE THINGS THAT YOU'RE HELPING TO DEVELOP IN THE COMMUNITY? UH, THAT ARE NOT JUST. CONNECTED TO HIM. HE RIDES ARE YOU GETTING A DAY? YES, YES. NO ABSOLUTELY. I THINK THAT ALL MEAN THAT OUR JOB TO COME HERE AND SAY, HEY, WE'RE DOING INNOVATIVE THINGS TO HELP IMPROVE.

MOBILITY IN NASHVILLE, HELP IMPROVE COMPLIANCE OF RIDERSHIP. AGAIN I THINK THOSE ALL OF THOSE SOFT FEATURES WILL WILL PLAY INTO YOUR DECISION MAKING. I'M IMAGINING A LOT OF THOSE BECAUSE I WANT TO HEAR THAT WHEN YOU COME IN TO ASK FOR ADDITIONAL SCHOOLS. YOU CAN BET YOU WILL HEAR THAT GOOD. IN FACT, WHAT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT NEXT IS AN EXCITING. PILOT PROGRAM THAT WE'RE WORKING ON WITH. WE GO IN TERMS OF LAST MILE TRANSIT. SO, UM, BUT. WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HEAR FROM OTHERS SO THAT WE CAN. BUILDING ADDITIONAL FACTORS AS WE THINK ABOUT HOW. FLEETS WOULD BE INCREASED OR DECREASED, BUT POINT WELL TAKEN. THANK YOU SHARE. ONE THING TO WIN EXPORTS VERY BRIEFLY, IS. THE IDEA THAT WE KNOW THE RIDERSHIP IS UP ON THE WEEKENDS, SO THE QUESTION MIGHT BE. IS THERE A WAY TO OPERATE ADDITIONAL SCOOTERS ON THE WEEKENDS? THEN BRING THEM BACK OUT OF MONEY, SO THEY THEY'VE BEEN VERY UM.

FLEXIBLE IN TERMS OF THE CONVERSATIONS THAT WE'VE HAD AND. GIVEN DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, UH, MULTI MODAL INFRASTRUCTURE. UH, USED TO BE PUBLIC WORKS. YEAH IT'S CERTAINLY INTERESTED IN THAT IN THAT IS VERY INTERESTED IN. THE PROCESS OF SCOOTERS, REPLACING OTHER KINDS OF TRANSPORTATION FOR A SPECIALLY SHORT AND THAT'S WHAT'S GOING TO TALK ABOUT NOW THAT THE UH, FIRST AND LAST MILE. PROJECT THAT WERE MET. THEY ASKED TO ENTER IN WITH WE GO AND WE GO IS EAGER. YEAH AND I THINK IT GETS TO SOME OF THE POINTS WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. SO WHEN WE SEE WHEN YOU'RE IN A MARKET WHERE SCOOTER RIDERSHIP IS EXTRAORDINARILY HIGH, YOU KNOW? ARE FROM A BUSINESS STANDPOINT. WE WANT TO MEET THAT DEMAND. RIGHT? AND WHERE ARE WE? SEEING? THE DEMAND IS IN THE AREAS WHERE THERE IS A LOT OF TRAFFIC AND WHERE PEOPLE ARE MOVING AROUND IN SHORT DISTANCES.

WE WANT TO GET TO PLACE PLACEMENT, PARTICULARLY. UM YOU KNOW WHAT WE SEE IS THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEKEND ON THE WEEKENDS. WHAT. BY HAVING WHAT IS YOU KNOW FOR ASSAD CITY OF NASHVILLE SIZE A PRETTY MODEST FLEET BASED ON OUR RIDERSHIP LEVELS FOR SURE. WE WANTED TO EXPLORE WHAT WE GO AND WITH DEPARTMENT TRANSPORTATION, UM IF THERE WAS A WAY THAT WE CAN HELP. UM WITH SOME OF THE LAST MILE, UM. CONNECTIVITY THAT WE SEE ALONG SOME OF THE, UH, MAJOR BUS CAR CORRIDORS. UM SO IF YOU LOOK DOWN WHAT I WOULD, YOU KNOW, SORT OF REALLY BUSY ONES. YOU KNOW GALLATIN DICKERSON. PARTIAL PIE. CHARLOTTENOLAN'S BILL MURPHY'S BURROW GOING ALL THE WAY OUT TO MADISON ALL THE WAY OUT TO BELLEVUE AND ANTIOCH, YOU KNOW, GIVEN OUR RESTRAINED FLEET SIZE. UM. AND REALLY, WHAT WOULD BE EXPERIMENTATION AROUND RIDERSHIP? UM IT DOESN'T REALLY MAKE SENSE FOR US TO PUT A SUBSTANTIAL PART OF OUR FLEET ALONG THOSE CORRIDORS TODAY, EVEN THOUGH WE BELIEVE THERE COULD BE SIGNIFICANT DEMAND.

AND SO WHAT? WE'VE BEEN TALKING TO WE GO ABOUT? WE'VE HAD ONE REAL LONG, DEEP DIVE MEETING WITH THEM TO START TALKING ABOUT SOME OF THE LOGISTICS OF HOW THIS WOULD WORK WOULD BE TO SET ASIDE SORT OF A 150 UNITS. WOULD NOT BE PART OF. THE CITY'S OVERALL CAP, AND THOSE UNITS WOULD BE JUST SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO BE PUT OUT ALONG TRANSIT CORRIDORS RIGHT NEAR BUS STOPS, OBVIOUSLY, PLACES WHERE PART OF WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT IS MAKING SURE THAT WORK. NOT BLOCKING ANY ACCESS AND SOME BUS STOPS THAT WILL WORK BETTER THAN OTHERS WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE NEAR EITHER.

BIG, UM. EMPLOYMENT HUBS, JOB CENTRES OR MULTI FAMILY HOUSING CONCENTRATIONS SO THAT WE CAN HELP. UM BE PART OF THAT LAST MILE, RIGHT? I MEAN THE BUS STOPS WHERE THEY ARE MANY TIMES. PEOPLE WILL HAVE MILE TWO MILE WALKS, AND IF WE CAN HELP. GET FOLKS TO THAT LAST MILE. UM WE WOULD LIKE TO, WE WOULD LIKE TO DO THAT. AND WE COULD TAKE THESE SCOOTERS OUT YOU KNOW, SORT OF OUTSIDE OF OUR NORMAL SYSTEM. UH, MEASURE THE RIDERSHIP REALLY WORKING IN CLOSE TANDEM TO MOVE THEM TO DIFFERENT TRANSIT STOPS, GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THEY'RE WORKING AND COME BACK TO THIS COMMISSION AND 56 MONTHS AND REPORT. YOU KNOW, HERE'S WHAT HERE'S WHAT WE'VE SEEN.

YOU KNOW, WE'D LIKE TO THINK THAT WE'D BE GETTING QUITE A BIT OF RIDERSHIP THAT THINGS WILL BE WORKING WELL, WE MAY FIND THAT THERE'S NOT A WHOLE LOT OF DEMAND, BUT YOU KNOW, WE WON'T KNOW UNTIL WE TRY. PART OF WHAT WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO DO IS REALLY PUSH SOME OF OUR EQUITY PROGRAMS. EACH OF OUR EACH OF THE COMPANIES HAVE VARIOUS SORT OF LOW COST OPTION FOR, UM, FOLKS THAT HAVE A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT. WAYS TO QUALIFY FOR IT. PART OF THE THAT PROGRAM WOULD BE. REALLY PUSHING THOSE THOSE EQUITY PROGRAM. SO UM, THAT'S THE SORT OF OVERARCHING UM. IDEA WOULD WE GO AND REALLY THE UH, OBVIOUSLY, FOR US, IT'S HOW DO WE POSITION THE SCOOTERS IN THIS MARKET IS NOT JUST SOMETHING THAT FOLKS ARE HAVING FUN WITH ON THE WEEKENDS, BUT OUR TOOLS TO ACTUALLY.

GET PEOPLE WHERE THEY NEED TO GO. UM AND SO PART OF IT IS, UM, IS TRYING TO SHOW THAT OBVIOUSLY IN PARTNERSHIP WE GO. WE'VE STILL GOT A LITTLE BIT OF WORK TO DO BEFORE WE ARE. READY TO DEPLOY, BUT WE WANTED TO GIVE YOU SORT OF A BROADER CONTEXT AND. TAKE ANY QUESTIONS OR ANY SUGGESTIONS. REGARDING WHAT THAT MIGHT LOOK LIKE. DOESN'T DOESN'T WE GO HAVE A NAP SIMILAR TO YOURS DOES YES. ARE YOU GOING TO BE INTEGRATED INTO THEIR CAN, AND WE'VE DONE THAT IN MANY OTHER CITIES. THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION.

SO WHERE YOU WOULD SEE ON THE APP WHERE YOU'RE SEEING BUS STOPS AND BUS TIMES AND LOCATIONS. YOU WOULD ALSO SEE THE LOCATION OF THE SCOOTERS. NOW WE WOULD WOULD UNLIKELY WOULD BE ABLE TO PROCESS PAYMENTS THROUGH THE WE GO OUT. SO IT WOULD. HERE'S HERE'S WHERE A BIRD OR A SCOOTER IS. YOU CLICK ON IT, AND THEN IT WOULD THEN OPEN THE OUR APPS. AND THEN YOU CAN THEN TAKE THE RIDE. BUT YES, WE THAT IS SOMETHING WE TALKED ABOUT IN OUR MEETINGS.

SO YOUR PRESENTATION TODAY MR REEDIE WAS JUST TO GET US TO BE THINKING ABOUT THESE ISSUES. ARE YOU PLANNING TO MAKE A FORMAL. MM PROPOSAL FOR US TO CONSIDER. UH YES, SIR. CHAIR SO, PARTICULARLY ON THE FIRST POINT ON THE FLEET INCREASES AND DECREASES, UH, THAT THAT WOULD EXACTLY WHERE I WANTED TO GET A LITTLE BIT OF FEEDBACK. SEND YOU SEND YOU ALL SOMETHING IN WRITING HERE IN THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS, AND THEN I WOULD LIKE TO COME BACK AND. AND CONSIDER VOTING ON THAT METRIC AND THEN OBVIOUSLY FUTURE MONTHS DOWN THE ROAD WE WOULD ACTUALLY CONSIDER THOSE LEAD INCREASES OR DECREASES FOR THE FOR THE SECOND THING WITH WITH WE GO.

WE CERTAINLY IF WE NEED TO ASK FOR PERMISSION TO CONTINUE DOWN THAT ROAD. THAT'S SOMETHING I'M HAPPY TO ASK FOR TODAY, UH, WITH AN UPPER LIMIT TO IF THAT MEANS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE, BUT YOU KNOW, WE WOULD LIKE I WOULD BE SURPRISED IF WE WERE READY TO DEPLOY WITHIN THE NEXT MONTH AROUND THAT PILOT PROGRAM, BUT IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE'RE ACTIVELY ENGAGED ON. I'M WORKING ON, UM.

AND SO YET, TO THE EXTENT THAT WE CAN, WE CAN CONTINUE TO DO THAT AND NOT NECESSARILY NEED TO COME IN AND ASK FOR ADDITIONAL APPROVALS. THAT WOULD BE NICE TO BE ABLE TO DO I THINK SO. UH, WE'VE. WE'VE HAD MULTIPLE CONVERSATIONS, THIS PARTICULAR PART AND I DID PARTICIPATE IN THE CONVERSATION WITH WE GO. WE GO AGAIN. I CAN'T SPEAK FOR WE GO, BUT THEY CERTAINLY CERTAINLY SEEMED ENTHUSIASTIC.

THEY ARE F P PART OF THE RFP WAS ANTICIPATING THAT THERE WOULD BE PART OF PROGRAMS AND PILOT PROGRAMS. AT LEAST THE ONES HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH WITHIN THE GOVERNMENT. THE MORE NIMBLE THAT CAN BE THE BETTER. WE'RE GOING TO BE TO BE ABLE TO MOVE QUICKLY AND BE ABLE TO DEPLOY QUICKLY OR COMPLETE PROJECTS QUICKLY. OUR. I HAVE NO DESIRE TO USURP THE AUTHORITY OF THE COMMISSION. UH, YOU'VE GOT. INHABIT BUT IF THERE ARE A WAY TO, UH, TO ALLOW AN UPPER LIMIT OF X NUMBER OF SCOOTERS PER COMPANY, WITH DURING A PILOT PROJECT THAT YOU KNOW I WOULD SUGGEST THAT NEED TO BE AT LEAST SIX MONTHS, WHICH WOULD TAKE IF WE WERE.

LET'S SAY WE STARTED OCTOBER 15TH. WE WOULD BE COMING BACK SOMETIME AFTER THE FIRST OF THE YEAR. IT. IT'S INTERESTING FROM THE STANDPOINT. IF THEY'RE USED SUCCESSFULLY IN THOSE TIME PERIODS, IT WILL BE DIFFERENT THAN THE RECREATIONAL BECAUSE THAT'S GOING TO ACTUALLY BE THERE. DOWNTIME RELATIVELY SPEAKING THAT ALTHOUGH WE DO SEEM TO BE WORKING PRETTY HARD, MOSTLY HERE ON THOSE SCOOTERS. BUT WHAT IT WOULD MEAN IS THOSE PEOPLE WERE GOING TO BE MEASURABLE ARE POPULIST PROGRAM, WHICH WE HAVE CONTRACT WITH IS GOING TO GIVE US THE DATA, AND I HAVE ABSOLUTELY TRUST IN THESE COMPANIES.

THERE IS THE ORDINANCE REQUIRES THERE ARE PARTNERS. AND SO I DO TRUST THEM. BY THE SAME TOKEN, WE'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO VALIDATE THAT INFORMATION. THE NUMBERS THAT I'VE LOOKED AT ARE VERY SIMILAR TO WHAT THEY'RE SHOWING. THEY ARE VERY HIGH NUMBERS, ESPECIALLY ON THE WEEKENDS. UM SO YOU KNOW? UH WE'RE IN THE IN DOT THE DEPARTMENT TRANSPORTATION. INTER, UH, MULTI MODAL INFRASTRUCTURE. UH IT IS VERY INTERESTING TO SEE COULD THIS MAY HAVE AN IMPACT IN NEIGHBORHOODS? WE DO HAVE THE EQUITY ISSUES WERE ACTUALLY WORKING ON WHAT WOULD THOSE EQUITIES ZONES B AND THAT'S ALSO ANOTHER CHALLENGE THAT REQUIRES MORE THAN JUST US SAYING, HEY, THIS IS IT. UH, BUT IF THERE WERE A WAY I KNOW HIM TOO LONG WITHIN THAT APOLOGIZE.

IF THERE WERE AWAY TO ALLOW US TO BEGIN. OPERATIONS OF A. OF A PILOT PROGRAM AIMED AT SPECIFICALLY AIMED AT THOSE FIRST AND LAST MILES AND IN FULL COOPERATION WITH WIGO HELPING IDENTIFY BECAUSE WE CERTAINLY CAN'T SAY WHERE THE HIGHEST BUS RIDERS ARE. THEY CAN. THEY CAN SAY WHERE THEY SEE PINCH POINTS AND NOT PINCH POINTS AND ALSO SEE THE PLACES WHERE IT MAKES SENSE IN SOME PLACES MAY HAVE HIGH RIDERSHIP AND DIDN'T MAKE SENSE. BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT A PLACE TO PUT SCOOTERS. WE ALSO WILL HAVE TO WORK OUT TO MAKE SURE WE DON'T PUT FOR YOU SAYING, YOU KNOW, THEY PUT 20 THEY PUT 20 THEY PUT ONE SO IT'S GOING TO TAKE A COOPERATIVE SPIRIT. AND UH, I WILL SAY, UH, I BELIEVE I CAN SAY WITHOUT HESITATION. WE HAVE OUR COMPANIES IN NASHVILLE ARE COOPERATING, PROBABLY TOGETHER AT A HIGHER LEVEL THAN MOST EVERY OTHER CITY IN THE COUNTRY THAT HAVE LET THEM SPEAK TO THAT, BUT THEY UNDERSTAND THAT THEY RISE TOGETHER FALL TOGETHER ISSUES FOR ONE OF THE ISSUES FOR ALL SCOOTERS ON THE SIDEWALKS ARE PROBLEMS.

SCOOTERS LEFT WHERE THEY'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE. EVEN THOUGH WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THIS WEEK IN THE RIVER. AND THE BUTCHER. VERY INTERESTING TO LOOK AT. NOT THAT MANY. BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT YOUR MAP, AND YOU SAID, YOU SAID, DOT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RIVER, YOU GO MM. AND YOU KNOW, SO WE'RE EXPLORING THAT WITH THEM, BUT IT COULD CHANGE DEMAND. INTERESTING PROCESS. I MET WITH THE COUNTERPART FROM PORTLAND. NOT TENNESSEE TWO WEEKS AGO, AND HE. I ACTUALLY THOUGHT THAT'S WHO IT WAS WHEN HE CALLED, UH. THE UH WE HAD A VERY PRODUCTIVE MEETING. HE OFFERED ANY ASSISTANCE HE COULD OFFER PORTLAND IS ADVANCED FROM US. FROM THE STANDPOINT, THEY'VE BEEN DOING IT LONGER. THEY'RE MORE RESOURCES TO WORK WITH. WE HAVE LIMITED RESOURCES, BUT AGAIN IF THERE'S A WAY TO DO IT, AND. AND I THINK YOU CAN. IT'S JUST A MATTER OF SAYING THIS IS THIS IS THE ALLIES OF THE PILOT. THESE ARE THE NUMBERS WE WOULD ALLOW. AND THEN TAKE. LET'S GO TO THE STREET WORKING WITH WE GO WORKING AND WITH METROPOLITAN POLICE AND OTHERS THAT WOULD MAKE SURE WE'RE GOING THE RIGHT SPACE AND THEN DETERMINING ON THE FRONT END.

WE ALSO WORKING WITH THE MAYOR'S OFFICE OF. OF PERFORMANCE MEASURES AND TO MAKE SURE WE CAN ACTUALLY MEASURE THOSE KIND OF THINGS THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT THERE THEY'VE BEEN MEETING THEIR MEETING WITH THIS MONTHLY AS WELL TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN. SO AGAIN. I WOULD ASK YOU. BECAUSE I THINK YOU'VE GOT TO AGENCY OF IT HAPPEN. I'D LIKE TO GETO SEE- PERMISSION FOR THEM TO PROCEED WITH THE PILOT. UH, VERY CLOSE SUPERVISION. WITH THEIR UNDERSTANDING THAT WE CAN'T EXERCISE. THE DIRECTOR CAN EXERCISE THOSE EMERGENCY POWERS THAT HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO ALLOW ME TO SAY NO STOP. AND THAT'S ALREADY AVAILABLE. YEAH, YOU'RE BASICALLY ASKING. WE'RE BLESSING THAT THEY CAN INCREASE THE NUMBER OF SCOOTERS FOR THESE PILOT PROGRAMS OVER WHAT'S BEEN ALREADY OFFER ONLY IN THE PILOT PROJECT, BUT THAT'S WHAT IT REALLY COMES DOWN, AND THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE TOLD HIM.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO IDENTIFY IF THEY DO UP TO 150. I WANT TO SEE. YOU KNOW I KNOW I'VE GOT ONE THROUGH 500 IN THIS PART OF TOWN. I WANT TO SEE A ONE A TWO A THREE AND THERE WAS OTHER PART OF TOWN. IN OTHER WORDS, I WANT SOME SEPARATE JUSTIFICATIONS. I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT. THEY REALLY GOOD TECHNOLOGY. I MEAN, I THINK THAT REALLY ISN'T AN INTERESTING ISSUE, AND I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA TO DO THAT KIND OF A PILOT. UM AND I REALLY LIKE THE IDEA OF BEING ABLE TO LOOK AT SOME OF THE FIRST AND LAST MILE STUFF.

I MEAN, I THINK THAT WE GO PROBABLY HAS DECENT DATA, FOR EXAMPLE ON RIDERSHIP. I KNOW THAT THIS TRANSPORTATION FOLKS LOOK AT. WHERE THE EMPLOYMENT HUBS ARE. EMPLOYER HUBS WHERE MULTI FAMILY IS I GUESS, YOU KNOW. I DO THINK IT'S GOOD TO BE FLEXIBLE. I'D BE INTERESTED IN THOSE DATA TO SAY IT LOOKS LIKE. 30 HERE AND 20 THERE, AND JUST SO IS IT 1 50, IS IT 100? IS IT. 1 75, YOU KNOW VERY WELL BE AND AGAIN, I THINK FROM FROM OUR PARTNERSHIP PERSPECTIVE IS WE WILL BE REPORTING BACK TO THE COMMISSION BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE IN THIS COMMUNITY, AND THERE'S SOME VERY.

UH THERE ARE BURIED OPINIONS ON WHETHER OR NOT UH, THEY SHOULD EVEN BE HERE BY THE SAME TOKEN OF WITH THE POTENTIAL. OF MAKING AN IMPACT ON TRAFFIC AND CONGESTION IN THE CITY BY SOME SIMPLE BUT DOING SOME SIMPLE DEPLOYMENTS. WE THINK PRETTY GOOD, SO WE'D BE HAPPY TO COME BACK AND REPORT. UH WHAT WE FIND AND DO IT REGULARLY AND NOT JUST AT THE MONTHLY MEETING. WE CONCERN BECAUSE IT'S PUBLIC RECORD ANYWAY, SO WE CAN CERTAINLY PUSH IT BACK OUT.

AND WE AUTHORIZE YOU TO HAVE THE DISCRETION TO WORK ON THE PILOT PILOT PROGRAMS. MHM. LANGUAGE. UHH! TRIBES THE PARENT PARAMETERS FOR YOUR AUTHORITY. YES. DO AS THE DOCTOR DIDN'T BE ABLE TO UNITED INVENTED 12 62. OH, TWO. SUBSECTION B. SAYS IN PERTINENT PART, THE EMPTY ELSIE. OKAY FUTURE POST RFP INCREASES IN THIS SPECIFIC OPERATORS, SOMETHING FLEET SIZE SHALL BE DETERMINED BY THE TLC BASED UPON REASONABLE AND OBJECTIVE CRITERIA TO BE DEVELOPED BY THE TLC. INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, AND OPERATOR'S ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS TO ACHIEVE THE GOALS OF THIS CHAPTER.SO THAT WORD SHALL IN THERE TO ME, SUGGESTS.

THAT YOU ALL ARE REQUIRED TO DO IT AS A BODY. BUT, UM. THAT THE GOALS OF THE CHAPTER I THINK ARE THEN SET OUT IN THE 17 CRITERIA THAT INFORMED THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE EARTH. P. THAT ARE ALSO IN 12 6 OR 12 62. OH 20. AND THAT WOULD INCLUDE, FOR EXAMPLE, THE EQUITY PIECE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT. MM. HAND COORDINATION AND COOPERATION BY THE COMPUTER COMPANIES WITH METRO, THE PILOT, THE POTENTIAL OPERATORS, WILLINGNESS AND ABILITY TO PERFORM WITH REGULATORY PILOT ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH POTENTIAL SOLUTIONS ARE TESTED. UNDER VARIED CIRCUMSTANCES IN ORDER TO DETERMINE BEST PRACTICES AND APPROACHES. UM. BUT LAST FROM THERE MAKES IT DOES MAKE IT SOUND LIKE THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO APPROVE. EVEN FOR OUR PILOT PROGRAM. AS OPPOSED. TO I DO BELIEVE YOU HAVE TO PUT IN OTHER WORDS, I THINK YOU HAVE TO SAY THAT YOU COULD HAVE 250 OR 150 OR 100 OR OR, YOU KNOW, MAYBE THEY WOULD COME BACK AND ASK FOR MORE.

BUT I THINK AGAIN BASED ON WHAT SHE'S DESCRIBING, I THINK YOU ALSO SAY THEY MUST NOT BE A PART OF THE CURRENT THAT IT WOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED. UH HUH. YES. CAN YOU TELL ME HOW MANY CORRIDORS YOU'RE LOOKING AT WITH WE GO. SURE ABSOLUTELY. IT'S GREAT. IT'S A GREAT QUESTION. IN FACT, I'VE GOT A MAP HERE. I'M HAPPY TO PASS AROUND. BUT THIS IS WHAT WE GO. SHOULD. THIS IS BASED ON BUS RIDERSHIP. THIS IS THE ENTIRE COUNTY YOU CAN SEE. THESE BIG DOTS OR WHERE THEY% HAVE A LOT OF RIDERSHIP. RIGHT SO THESE ARE CURRENTLY AREAS WE DO. WE HAVE NO ABILITY TO SERVE TODAY, RIGHT? SO I THINK THE IDEA WOULD BE IS REALLY TO GO INTO PLACES THAT WE HAVE NOT EXPLORED AT ALL YET. UH AND SO. YOU KNOW THE MAIN CORRIDORS OUT OF TOWN, GALLATIN AND, UM, YOU KNOW DIXON, CLARKSVILLE PIKE, NOLAN'S VILLE, OF COURSE, UM CHARLOTTE.

YOU KNOW, AGAIN, PLACES THAT WE JUST ARE UNABLE TO SURVIVE. OCCASIONALLY, WE'LL SEE SOMEONE THAT'S. BEEN BRAVE ENOUGH TO RIDE ALL THE WAY FROM DOWNTOWN OUT ONE OF THOSE CORRIDORS BUT YOU KNOW WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO DO IS TO OFFER PEOPLE IN OTHER MODE, UM, THAT WE JUST WE CAN'T DO TODAY. AND I MEAN, A LOT OF THESE STATIONS ARE FAR FAR FAR OUTSIDE OF. THE AREA WHERE WE SERVE TODAY OUTSIDE THE 4 40 LOOP, RIGHT? SO UM, I MEAN, WOULD YOU BE THINKING ABOUT. PILOTING ON ALL OF THOSE CORRIDORS.

ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH THE HIGHEST RIDERSHIP FOR SURE, LIKE THREE? YEAH JUST TRYING TO GET A SENSE OF TO ME. THERE ARE THREE OR FOUR THAT WOULD REALLY UM, BE PRIDE. YES. AND I'M HAPPY. TO SHARE THOSE WITH YOU. AND I MEAN NUMBER OF SCOOTERS MATTERS, RIGHT IF YOU'RE GONNA BE ON 10 CORRIDORS THAN. ITSOUNDS LIKE YOU'VE HAD SOME DISCUSSION ALREADY AMONGST THE COMPANIES AND MR FIELDS SAID. THIS PILOT PROGRAM WAS WE GO WITH MAKES SENSE TO START WITH 150 OR 50 PER COMPANY TO SEE HOW THEY THAT'S RIGHT. YEAH I MEAN, WE STARTED AT A HIGHER NUMBER IN WHICH SORT OF SORT OF SETTLED UPON. I THINK YOU KNOW TO START WITH 150 EACH. AND EACH TAKING OUR EACH. YES JUST FOR FLEXIBILITY. AND I THINK YOU KNOW, WE MEAN IT COULD BE WHAT I'M LOOKING HERE AT, YOU KNOW, 75 80 BUS STOPS. AND YOU KNOW 5 TO 10 AT EACH ACROSS THREE COMPANIES, YOU KNOW, AS A YOU JUST. SE HOW IT GOES, RIGHT? I MEAN, I THINK THE VARIETY OF WHAT WE WANTED WE CLEARLY THE LARGE HELPS ARE GOING TO BE PLACES WHERE WE WON'T LOOK ATWELL, MOSTLY THE SMALLER HUBS TO SEE IF THERE'S A WRITER, YOU KNOW, SEE.

IS THERE ANY NEED THERE? BECAUSE THERE MAY BE MORE PEOPLE LOADING. AT. THE MADISON STATION, WHICH I THINK MAYBE THEIR HIGHEST AND 500 RIDERS A DAY. YES HOW MANY BUT NORTH OF $500 A DAY. SO YOU KNOW YOU GO TO A PLACE LIKE THAT, BUT YOU MAY ALSO WANT TO GO TO A PLACE THAT'S MIDWAY AT CHARLOTTE. IT MAY NOT BE AGAIN. IT MAY NOT BE IN BELLEVUE. BUT IT MAY BE IN BELLEVUE, WHERE THERE'S A RIDERSHIP, BUT IT'S NOT. IT'S NOT MAYBE 500 A DAY SO. HAVE A THINK AS WE AS I LOOKED AT THE ORDINANCE, BUT WE WERE TRYING TO DETERMINE IS. WHERE COULD WE EXPERIMENT? WHERE COULD WE SEE IF THIS REALLY DOES MAKE SENSE? BECAUSE FRANKLY, AND I'VE SAID THIS PUBLICLY, SO IT'S NO SURPRISE TO ANYBODY. PROBABLY WE DON'T EXCUSE YOU GOT HERE. THEY CAME TO ME AND I SAID, NO, I DON'T WANT HIM NOT GOING TO TAKE THEM.

AND OVER THE LAST GOSH HAS HAVE BEEN THREE YEARS. YEAH THE LAST THREE YEARS I'VE SAW I'VE SEEN AND I'VE LEARNED THAT IT'S POSSIBLE. UH AND THEN YOU LOOK AT OTHER CITIES AND YOU LOOK AT OTHER COUNTRIES AND YOU GO. WHAT'S MORE THAN POSSIBLE? THE QUESTION IS, HOW WELL DO WE EDUCATE THE PUBLIC AND WHAT DO WE PROVIDE INFRASTRUCTURE THAT'S AVAILABLE NOT ONLY FOR SCOOTERS BUT FOR BICYCLES AS WELL. HOW DO WE PROVIDE THAT WHERE IT MAKES SENSE? AND I JUST KIND OF THINK WE HAVE TO. THIS MIGHT BE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY, JUMP OFF THE EDGE AND LET'S SEE WHAT HAPPENS. AND AGAIN, ALL OF IT. YOU'RE NOT GIVING PERMISSION FOR US TO GO AND PUT. BUNCH SCOOTERS OUT TOMORROW THIS IS EVERYTHING THAT WE WILL DO REGARDING THIS PILOT PROGRAM WILL BE COMPLETELY AT BILLY AND WE GOES DISCRETION AND I WOULD IMAGINE IT WOULD START SMALL AND.

POTENTIALLY GROW. I THINK THE 1 50 NUMBER WAS JUST, UM, CONTEMPLATING SOME FLEXIBILITY OVER A SIX MONTH PERIOD OF TIME. BUT IF HE WERE MORE COMFORTABLE TO LOWER NUMBER START AND THEN WE CAN REPORT BACK IN A COUPLE MONTHS. UM YEAH, SO 1 50 IS REALLY 4 50. TOOK TOTAL POTENTIALLY RIGHT AGAIN. BUT THIS IS THESE ARE NOT, YOU KNOW, I WOULD BE SHOCKED. IF WE'RE ALWAYS WE'RE ALL YOU KNOW, A MONTH FROM NOW DEPLOYING AT THAT FULL RIGHT? ACROSS THE SEA.

THESE ARE GONNA WE'RE GONNA HAVE TO IDENTIFY THESE STATIONS. MAKE SURE WE'VE GOT APPROPRIATE PARKING NEARBY. GET SIGNED OFF FROM WE GO. RIGHT, SO THIS IS ALL GOING TO BE DONE VERY MUCH AS A PARTNERSHIP, NOT AS A. LET'S JUST GO THROW THINGS OUT AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. I KNOW I SEE. THEY ARE YOUR FORMER NEIGHBORHOOD. YOU WERE. SOME OF THE SIDEWALKS ARE NOT AS WHITE AS IN OTHER PARTS, ABSOLUTELY PARK THEM AND THEN IT'S THEY DO GET BLOCKED FOR ANYBODY WITH AN 88 ISSUE, SO IN THESE XTRA NEIGHBORHOODS THAT THEY WILL NOT BE IN, BUT. THIS LETTER THE METRICS. WHAT ARE YOU ALL LOOKING AT? TO MAKE SURE THAT THAT IS NOT THE CASE. BUT THEY DO HAVE PART. SOME DON'T EVEN HAVE SIDEWALKS, SO I% DON'T EVEN NEIGHBORS DON'T EVEN HAVE SOMEONE. SEVERAL. E ARE FORTUNATE. I THINK THAT'S THAT'S PART OF THE CHALLENGE IS TO WHAT CAN WE DO? UH, I'M NOT GETTING A WHOLE LOT OF COMPLAINTS RIGHT NOW.

BUT THEY DO EXIST BECAUSE I DON'T WE SEE IT. UM. AGAIN I THINK PART OF THIS EXPERIMENT, SEE IF IT DOES WORK. BUT IF. IF IT'S POSITIVE HERE IN ITS NEGATIVE HERE, THAT'S WHERE THE COMMISSION WILL HAVE TO COME BACK AND MAYBE SAY, YEAH, IT'S REALLY WORKING WELL, BUT THEY'RE LEAVING THEM ALL IN THE WRONG SPOT. YOU KNOW, IT GOES BACK TO A LOT OF IT GOES RIGHT TO THE COMPANY'S THEIR ABILITY TO EDUCATE THE RIDERS AND OUR ABILITY TO HELP THEM EDUCATE, BUT IT'S PRIMARILY ON THEIR SHOULDERS AND I THINK IT'S CLEAR IN THE RFP PROCESS AND THE CONTRACTS THAT WERE SIGNED THAT IT'S THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE IT WORK. AND I HEAR YOU. YES I DON'T HAVE AN ANSWER. THEY MAY HAVE SOMETHING THEY COULD RESPOND TO TELL YOU HOW HOW WE WOULD VISIT IT FROM CERTAINLY FROM BIRDS.

PERSPECTIVE IS WE WOULD GO. USING THE BUS MAP KNOWING WHAT THE RIDERSHIP IS. WE'RE IN THE PROCESS OF EVALUATING ALL THESE PLACES. UM AND COMING BACK WITH A SPECIFIC. DEPLOYMENT LOCATION THAT IS THAT IS TAKES INTO ACCOUNT. UM YOU KNOW, SIZE OF SIDEWALKS, MAKING SURE WE'RE NOT BLOCKING. ANY SORT OF IDEA. UH, OR CREATING ANY OTHER TYPE OF OBSTRUCTION AND GETTING ACTUALLY ACTUAL SIGN OFF ON YES, THAT'S AN APPROPRIATE PLACE FOR YOU TO PUT THEM AND THAT'S WHERE WE WILL DEPLOY AND REBALANCE THEM TO EVERY DAY.

I'M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND. WHAT THE PURPOSE IS GOING TO BE. YOU'RE GOING TO GO TO THE BUS STOP. YOU'RE GOING TO SET UP A PARKING AREA LIKE WE'VE DONE ALREADY FOR THE SCOOTERS. SO SOMEONE WHO RIDES THE BUS HOME FROM DOWNTOWN. AND GETS OFF THE BUS STOP GETS ON A SCOOTER AND RIGHTS AT THAT LAST MILE HOME? YES, OKAY. AND THEY DROPPED THEIR SCOOTER OFF AT THEIR HOUSE. WE COME PICK IT UP. YOU COME PICK IT UP. OKAY? ANOTHER RIDER RIDES MUCH LIKE YOU HAVE THE INDEPENDENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE TRUCKS AND WHAT NOT TO RIDE AROUND, PICK UP THE SCOOTERS AND TAKE THEM HOME, CHARGE HIM AND THEN BRING THEM BACK TO THEIR. THAT'S CORRECT PLACE OF ORIGIN AGAIN. OKAY NOW, HOW'S IT WORK THE OTHER WAY. I GET OUT OF THE DOOR OF MY HOUSE. I GOT TO TAKE THAT FIRST MILE TO THE BUS STOP. WHERE'S MY SCOOTER? YEAH SO THESE ARE THE THESE ARE THE CHALLENGES THAT WILL HAVE TO WORK ON. WE'VE GOT INTO SOME OF THIS.

UM I THINK YOU KNOW, WEWILL KNOW RIDERSHIP LIKE THE IDEA OF LEAVING IT AT HOME PLUG. IT IS ABSOLUTELY SOMETHING THAT WE COULD DO. YEAH BECAUSE I'M LOOKING AT THAT FIRST MILE TO GET TO THE BOAT. THAT'S RIGHT. AS YOU KNOW, THERE'S NO SCOOTER AT MY HOUSE. THAT'S RIGHT, UM, THAT THERE'S. IT COULD CERTAINLY DO. LEAVE IT RIGHT THERE AT MY DRIVEWAY AND THEN YOUR PERSON YOUR INDEPENDENT PERSON IS GOING TO COME BY PICK AND UNLIKELY TO YOUR APARTMENT COMPLEX. SOMEBODY'S GOING TO COME BY AND PICK IT UP AND. TAKE IT BACK TO THE GARAGE AND CHARGE THEM AND THEN BRING THEM BACK TO THE BUS STOP. RIGHT SO WITH WITH OUR NEWEST MODEL SCOOTERS, I MEAN THEY CAN RIDE 789 RIDE. SEVEN HAVE A PRETTY. GOOD BATTERY POWER. SO I THINK AGAIN. THESE ARE THE DETAILS THAT WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WORK OUT AS WE GET INTO IT. CERTAINLY WE DON'T WANT TO TAKE SOMEBODY'S SCOOTER AWAY THAT THEY'RE GOING TO USE THE NEXT MORNING.

AND PART OF THAT PART OF. WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT TO SORT OF FIGURE OUT HOW HOW WE. WORK THROUGH THAT ISSUE. I'M JUST TRYING TO ENVISION ABSOLUTELY WHAT THIS WHAT THIS GOAL IS WITH WE GO. YEAH I MEAN, IT'S I THINK IT'S TOO, UM, OFFER PEOPLE AN ALTERNATIVE FROM HAVING TO WALK, YOU KNOW, TWO MILES FROM A BUS STOP. AND POTENTIAL. FOR INSTANCE, OUT THERE IN BELLEVUE AT THE BUS STOP THAT'S THERE AT THE RECYCLING CENTER. THERE'S A LARGE PARKING LOT. AND PEOPLE DRIVE FROM THEIR HOMES AND PARKED THERE AND GET ON THE BUS AND RIDE DOWNTOWN. IT'S EXPRESS ROUTE. AND THEN THEY CATCH IT BACK AT 5 36 O'CLOCK AND GET IN THEIR CAR AND DRIVE HOME. AND I'M JUST TRYING TO ENVISION USING THAT SCOOTER INSTEAD OF THEIR CAR.

THAT'S RIGHT ON GOOD DAYS. THAT'S RIGHT. THAT'S DOUBTING BITES GOING TO WANT TO DO IT IN THE RAIN. THAT'S RIGHT. YEAH, AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT. THE GOAL IS TO FIGURE THIS OUT, RIGHT? AND UM, BUT THEN STARTING IN THE MORNING, SO YOU DON'T TAKE YOUR CAR OUT OF THE GARAGE. WHERE'S MY SCOOTER? WE DO HAVE. I MEAN, ONE OF THE THINGS WE CAN DO IS WE CAN WE CAN RENT YOU A SCOOTER ON A MONTHLY BASIS. WE CAN, UM HI. WE CAN PUT SCOOTERS IN OTHER LOCATIONS BASED ON IF SOMEONE REQUESTS ONE. ARE YOU WRITING SCOOTERS NOW? FROM ON A MONTHLY BASIS. YOU CAN DO THAT. YES, PROGRAM IS THAT PART OF THE 500 WE'VE AUTHORIZED. AND UH, NO, NOT IN MY UNDERSTAND, BUT I DON'T. KNOW HOW MANY OF THOSE CUSTOMERS WE HAVE HERE? I'M NOT AWARE. BUT YOU CAN. RENT YOUR OWN WITH YOUR OWN LOCK. UH AND IT WORKS THROUGH THE APP ON YOUR PHONE. YOU CAN LOCK IT NEAR THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN ACCESS.

AND I COULD BE CORRECT. I'M HAPPY TO BE CORRECTED. THE RE BALANCING PROCESS IN TERMS OF MOVING SCOOTERS AFTER THEY'RE USED BACK AND FORTH CHARGE AND SO FORTH IF THOSE MANAGERS ARE STILL AVAILABLE. OF THEY HAVE A TIME PERIOD. I THINK IT'S 48 HOURS THAT SCOOTER IS SUPPOSED TO BE UH, CAN BE STATIONED HERE MORE THAN 48 HOURS. THAT IS CORRECT. SO IF A SCOOTER WOULD SEND IN FRONT OF YOUR HOUSE FROM THE NIGHT. IF THEY KNOW THAT'S PART OF THIS PILOT, AND IT WOULD BE AND THEY'RE PARKED IN FRONT OF YOUR HOUSE. AND THEY KNOW THE NEXT DAY THAT IT DISAPPEARS BACK DOWN HERE AND THEY CAN TRACK IT AND THEY WOULD BE AT THAT POINT. THEY WOULD. NO, WAIT A MINUTE.

THERE'S A. PERSON USING IT, THAT'S IT SO THEY DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE TO MOVE THEM EVERY DAY. AND IN FACT, WE HAVEN'T GONE TO THAT DETAIL IN MY MIND. I WOULD EXPECT THEM NOT TO DO A LOT OF MOVING UNLESS THEY'RE BLOCKING THE PUBLIC RIGHT AWAY. UNLESS THEY'RE PUT ON PRIVATE PROPERTY IN AN INAPPROPRIATE WAY, OR IT MIGHT BE NICE TO ON THE APP TO SAY, HEY, I WANT TO HANG ON TO IT TILL TOMORROW MORNING. THERE'S YOUR INNOVATORS RIGHT THERE. YOU JUST GAVE HIM AN IDEA. YOU KNOW, BUT THE PROBLEM IS AGAIN GETTING CHARGED UP, BUT WE'RE NOT HERE TO TAKE ALL THESE PROBLEMS TODAY. WE SHOULD ALSO REMEMBER THEY'RE NOT NECESSARILY GOING TO BE IT. INDIVIDUAL PRIVATE. ALRIGHT? YEAH. I MEAN, THEY COULD BE AN APARTMENT BUILDING APARTMENT BUILDINGS AND BUILD YOU NOW ANOTHER PART OF TOWN AND CERTAINLY. PART OF THE PILOT IS TO FIGURE OUT HOW WOULD IT WORK FOR AN APARTMENT COMPLEX? YOU'VE GOT 800 UNITS AND YOU'VE GOT 50 PEOPLE WERE GOING TO RIDE SCOOTERS.

IF I WERE THE APARTMENT OWNER, AND IF I WERE MY PARTNERS I'D BE TAKING, YOU KNOW. LOOK WHAT WE'VE GOT HERE. MAYBE THERE NEEDS TO BE A CORRAL SET HERE. WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO DO THAT? THERE MAY BE AND THEN THEY COME UP, SO THERE IS NOT THE ISSUE OF ANY ISSUES THERE ON THEIR PROPER DATA. THAT'S WHAT THE MORE YOU THINK ABOUT IT. AND I'M SAYING YOU'RE SAYING THAT THE LIGHT BULBS GOING OFF THE MORE YOU THINK WHICH GO WELL. IF THIS HAPPENED IN THAT HAPPENED, THEN WE'VE GOT SUCCESS. SO I THINK WE'RE I THINK WE'VE NOW BEGUN TO SEE WHAT SUCCESS COULD LOOK LIKE.

WILL IT BE SUCCESSFUL? I DON'T KNOW. YEAH I BELIEVE THAT'S A THAT'S A REALLY GOOD IDEA IN TERMS OF LOOKING INTO WHERE FOLKS ARE GOING TO THE INDIVIDUAL HOMES. I THINK PART OF THIS IS STARTING AT THE TRANSIT CENTERS AND THEN SEEING WHERE FOLKS GOING. AND IF THERE ARE, YOU KNOW, BIG EMPLOYMENT CENTERS OR IF THERE ARE, YOU KNOW, BIG APARTMENT COMPLEXES OR, UH AND WE'RE SEEING FREQUENT RIDES DAILY. THEN WE'LL WANT TO WANT TO GO BOTH PLACES, RIGHT? SO THAT'S PART OF THE EXPERIMENTATION HERE AND AREAS TODAY AGAIN WHERE WE HAVE ZERO SERVICE. A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE, I THINK WORRY ABOUT THE. ASSURANCE OF THE, UM. SENSIBLE PATH OF TRAVEL ON THE SIDEWALK AND, UM SO I WOULD THINK THAT. IT WOULD BE GOOD FOR THERE TO BE SOME KIND OF SOLUTION. LIKE IF THE TECHNOLOGY IS. SPECIFIC ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO SEE IF THE VEHICLE IS PARKED ON THE SIDEWALK.

SIDEWALKS AND RESIDENTIAL AREAS ARE GENERALLY GOING TO BE LIKE FIVE FT. NARROW SIDEWALKS, SO IF YOU LEAVE A SCOOTER IN THE MIDDLE THAT'S RIGHT. AND SO A LOT OF CERTAINLY SEEN THAT. AND SO A CONCERN WOULD BE, YOU KNOW, IN TERMS OF METRO'S ABILITY TO COMPLY WITH THE IDEA. ARE OBLIGATION LEGALLY. UM. BUT YOU KNOW IT'S WHAT IS THE SOLUTION TO ENSURE THAT WE CAN TELL IF WE'RE LEAVING SCOOTERS IN FRONT OF HOUSES OVERNIGHT, BUT THEY ARE NOT IMPROPERLY.

SO WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM US TODAY? WELL, IF WE WANT IF. YOU AGREE THAT IT MAKES SOME SENSE TO START A PATH. THEN WHAT I THINK WE NEED TO DO I'LL LOOK BACK TO THE TO OUR ATTORNEY IS TO SAY YOU MAY USE THIS MINI SCOOTERS PER COMPANY. UH, FOR A SIX MONTH PERIOD. DURING THAT TIME YOU'LL BE REPORTING BACK TO THE COMMISSION WILL BE SHARING DATA. UH AND CONTINUING COOPERATIVE EFFORT AND CLEARLY THAT WE GO CONTINUES TO BE A PART AND CONTINUES TO BE A PART. AND I MEAN, MORE THAN JUST COURSE WE'RE IN INDIA, BUT NOT JUST OUR PART OF THE OTHER THE PLANNERS AND THAT SORT OF THING ON THIS PROCESS. ONE AND PT, OR THEY PART OF THE. THEY GENERALLY AWARE OF IT, BUT THEY HAVE NOT BEEN A PART OF THE PLANNING PROCESS. BECAUSE AGAIN WE WERE LOOKING MORE THE DATA RELATED TO THE RIDERSHIP. DO YOU THINK? AREAS WHERE THERE ARE NOT SIDEWALKS OR THE STREETS SAFE. AND JUST LIKE YOU'RE SAYING EVEN THE NARROW SIDEWALK TELL WHO LIVES WHERE IS IT SAFE TO HAVE THEM ON BOARD CHAIRS THERE.

I BELIEVE THE REGULATIONS SPECIFICALLY PROHIBIT PARKING SOMEBODY ON A PAR WALK IF IT'S LESS THAN EIGHT, FT WIDE. WELL YOU BRING THE SIDEWALKS TO SOME NEIGHBORHOODS. WE'LL LET YOU PARK I HAD ONE QUESTION OF YOU ANTICIPATE HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT EACH COMPANY BE ON EACH ROUTE? OR WILL THEY DIVIDE UP LIKE ONE DOING? GALLATIN ONES WILL KNOW AT ALL. DISCUSS THAT I HAVE NOT SPECIFICALLY. THOUGHT HOW THAT WOULD WORK IN TERMS OF BEING PUT 10 AND THIS ONE PUTS THREE YOU PUT FORWARD YOU PUT THREE ALRIGHT AGAIN FROM THE COOPERATION.

I EXPECT THEM TO SORT OF WORK THOSE DETAILS OUT THAT IF, SAY, IT'S 10. IT'S 10, NETHERLANDS, BECAUSE WHAT WE'RE BEEN EQUITY ISSUES AND THE TERMS OF. WHERE HOW MANY EACH ONE COULD PUT AT EACH PLAYS OR YOU TAKE THAT ONE. I'LL TAKE THIS ONE AND GO FROM THERE AND THEY'RE GOING TO REBALANCE THEMSELVES. ASSUME LIKE LIKE EVERYWHERE ELSE. STANDARD. AND IT'S NOT INAPPROPRIATE. AT LEAST I DON'T THINK IF I IF I WANTED TO RIDE A SCOOTER, AND I'M NOT RIDING SCOOTERS, NOT BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE THEM. I JUST GOT THIS WELL ANYWAY. OH, THE. IT IT WOULD NOT BE APPROPRIATE. I RODE A SCOOTER TO MY HOUSE TO PUT IT IN MY DRIVEWAY. IT MIGHT BE APPROPRIATE TO PUT IT IN THE GARAGE, BUT IT WOULD NOT BE IN A PRO FOR ME. I MEAN, AS A WRITER, I COULD DO THAT.

AND YOU WOULD SEE IT JUST AS WELL ON THE DRIVEWAY IN THE ONE ADVANTAGE OUT IN THE SUBURBS. THEY CAN SEE THE SCHOOLS A WHOLE LOT BETTER THERE THAN THEY CAN DOWNTOWN BECAUSE HIGH RISES DOWNTOWN AND P WITH CURRENT TECHNOLOGY TECHNOLOGY GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME. THEY'RE ALL THAT TECHNOLOGY MUCH BETTER TODAY. IT WAS THREE YEARS AGO. EVEN. SOON THEY'RE GONNA BE ABLE TO KNOW WHEN THAT'S AS GOOD AS ON THE SIDEWALK AND NOT ALLOW IT TO STOP.

NOT ALLOW THE RIDE TO END. THEY'RE GOING TO GET IT TO THE RIGHT PLACE OR THEY'RE GOING TO KEEP GETTING CHARGED. THAT IS TRUE. YES ON OUR VERY NEXT MODEL THAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN HERE. THEY'RE ALL IN THE SAME GENERAL TECHNOLOGY LANE. WE ALL HAVE OUR LATEST AND GREATEST EQUIPMENT HERE IN NASHVILLE. YEAH. MM. MORE QUESTIONS YOU MENTIONED. YOU DON'T HAVE IT ALL AWAY TO DISTINGUISH, YOU KNOW, THINKING. YOUR BEST DROPS OVER AND EDGE BUILDINGS.

NASHVILLE IF ONE OF THOSE. YOU GET PICKED UP BECAUSE THERE'S STILL A LOT OF AIRBNB S OVER THERE AND TOURISTS THAT RIDE THEM INTO DOWNTOWN. IS THERE A WAY TO DISTINGUISH THAT THAT IS IN ADDITION TO THE NORMAL 500 THAT WOULD BE IN THE TOURIST AREA IS REALLY TO DISTINGUISH THOSE AND GET THEM TAKE THEM BACK TO AND I GUESS VICE VERSA. YOU CAN SEE PEOPLE WRITING THEM FROM. DOWNTOWN AREA OVER TO ONE OF THOSE YEAH, IT IS. HOW WOULD YOU DISTINGUISH THAT WHICH ARE PART OF THE PILOT IN WHICH ARE. YEAH. SORT OF LIVE OUTSIDE THE OTHER NORMAL SCOOTERS BECAUSE IT BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO WE'RE GOING TO WANT ALL THAT DATA RIGHT? THAT'S SPECIFIC TO THE PILOT PROGRAMS THERE WAS LIVE OUTSIDE.

THE NORMAL 500 BE MEASURED. INDEPENDENTLY. SOMEONE PICKED UP ON GALLONS. BY SOMEBODY VISITING AND TAKEN INTO DOWNTOWN. YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THAT GO PICK THAT UP AND TAKE IT BACK TO THE BUS STOP. AND AS WE SEE THE SCOOTERS NOW, FOR INSTANCE, YOU KNOW, QUITE. COINCIDENCE IF YOU SEE A BIRD ON ONE OF OUR MAPS, IT'S BLACK. IF YOU SEE A LIVE IT IS A NICE LIME GREEN. AND IF YOU C SPAN, IT'S ORANGE. WHAT WE WOULD VERY LIKELY TO. JUST TO MAKE IT EASY IS TALK ABOUT DIFFERENT COLOR, DIFFERENT COLOR RATIONS AND THAT SORT OF THING FOR THE. UH WHERE THERE ARE VERY CLEAR AND I THINK THE OTHER SIDE OF IT. NO EDGEFIELD IN INTERNATIONAL VERY WELL. IT STRIKES ME THAT THERE MAY BE SOME PLACES EVEN THOUGH THERE WILL BE A RIDERSHIP FROM A PILOTING STANDPOINT MAKE, BUT WE MAY WANT TO AVOID SOME THINGS JUST TO AVOID BUMPS THAT WE KNOW ARE COMING.

BECAUSE. THE INNER CITY HAS MANY STRANGE AND STRESSES AND CHALLENGES. WE DO NOT WANT TO ADD ANY MORE STRAINS AND CHALLENGES AND PLUS, I SUSPECT THE BUS STOPS IN EAST NASHVILLE, AND MANY OF THEM ARE CLOSER TO HOMES AND SOME WHEN YOU GET TO BELLEVUE. OR GET OUT AND HER OUT. CHARLOTTE OUT DICK SHOW THAT WORKS FOR US.

SO IT'LL AGAIN IT'S GONNA. I MEAN, IT'S LIKE WHERE I'M ASKED FOR MORE WORK, BUT THE TRUTH MATTER IS THAT IT'S INTERESTING TO LOOK AT. SO, BILLY, HOW MANY SCOOTERS DO YOU ENVISION NEEDING FOR THE PILOT PROGRAM? HAVE TO DIFFER. THEY STARTED OUT AT 2 58 AND I SAID, I THINK THAT'S TOO MANY AND THEY CAME TO 1 50. I SAID, WELL, WHAT ABOUT 100? THEY SAID, WELL, WHAT ABOUT 150? HERE'S WHY. AND AGAIN, THEY TALKED ABOUT WHAT GOES BACK THAT FLEXIBILITY SOME OF IT IF, BECAUSE THEY WILL. LET'S SAY THE PALACE STARTS TOMORROW. I CONFIDENT THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DEPLOY 100 AND 51ST DAY BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO SPEND ANY MORE THEIR RESOURCES DO.

OVER DEPLOY, SO WHAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO IS START PUTTING THEM IN PLACES AND SEE WHAT DID THEY LOOK LIKE ONE OF THOSE NUMBERS AND SEE IF THEY WILL BE LOOKING AT ROGER. EVERY RIGHT. WE DO NOT SEE EVERYWHERE. THAT'S NOT PART OF THE CONTRACT, SO I CAN'T SEE EVERY SCOOTER EVERY MINUTE. THEY CAN. SO THEY'LL BE TRACKING THAT. AND YOU KNOW, WHILE THEY WON'T REPORT SPECIFIC. THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO. THEY CANNOT TELL ME BY CAR CONTRACT.

THEY CANNOT TELL ME SPECIFICS ABOUT THAT SCHOOL, BUT WHAT THEY CAN AND ZIP CODES AND NEIGHBORS SAYING HERE'S WHAT WE'RE SEEING FROM THIS. WE'RE SEEING 14 SCOOTERS. ARE GOING INTO THIS GENERAL AREA AND 15 GOING COMING BACK, AND SO THEY'LL BE PROVIDING THAT KIND OF INFORMATION BACK AND AGAIN. IT SEEMS LIKE I'M SPEAKING FOR THEM, ALMOST LIKE A MORE THAN THEM, BUT AGAIN REQUIRES THIS COMMISSION TO BE A PARTNER TO THIS. AND WE SIGNED A CONTRACT AND YOU GAVE HIM A CERTIFICATE. SO I'VE TRIED TO TAKE THAT SERIOUS. CAN WITH THE 150 EACH SOUND. WE'RE GONNA SECRET POLITICAL. SO IS THERE A NUMBER YOU FEEL BETTER WITH? I LIKE THE IDEA OF THE PILOT AND THE PARTNERSHIP WITH WE GO. I.

I LIKE THE IDEA OF IT, BUT I ALSO YOU KNOW, CRINGE AND MORE DENSE NEIGHBORHOODS THAT HAVE SEEN A LOT OF THEM AND HAVE FINALLY SEEN SOME RELIEF. BUT THEY'RE NOT ALL OVER THE SIDEWALKS ANYMORE. HAVING TO, YOU KNOW THE ANSWER TO RIGHT NOW. THERE'S 50 MORE IN THERE. AND I REALIZED IT WOULDN'T ALL BE RIGHT THERE. BUT. I'M NOT SAYING I COULDN'T BE SWAYED. AS I USED TO BE OUR NEIGHBORS, SO I UNDERSTAND THAT IF 125. AGAIN WE'RE 100 FIFTY'S JUST FINE. WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT? I THINK, 100.

I'M GOING TO MAKE A MOTION. WE NEED EMOTION, 100. DO WE NEED EMOTION? YEAH, I'M GONNA MAKE ONE FOR 100 AND 50. I THINK IT SOUNDS JUST FINE. AND LIKE I SAY, BRING THOSE EAST NASHVILLE SIDEWALKS TO INGLEWOOD. SO I MOVE WE GIVE THE DIRECTOR AUTHORITY TO START THE PILOT PROJECT. WITH 150 SCOOTERS FOR EACH COMPANY SENT AN APPROPRIATE MOTION. TO A SECOND. WELL, SECOND ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, ALRIGHT? AS OPPOSED. HER NAME. NO. YEAH. DID YOU ABSTAIN? I THINK I'M STAYING OUT OF 100. I'LL SAY NO. SAY NO. WELL, THE CAR MOTION FAILS. MAKE A MOTION THAT WE APPROVE 100 SCOOTERS AND GIVE THE DIRECTOR THE AUTHORITY TO ENGAGE IN THE PILOT PROGRAM WITH WE GO AND THE S U. N. D. I'LL SECOND THAT ALL THOSE IN FAVOR. UH, MOTION PASSES. THANK YOU ALL WILL BE BACK TO REPORT ON THE 1ST 100 HERE IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

THANK YOU CAN ALWAYS IMPROVE MORE. I MEAN, THE PILOTS 50 MORE CITIES ANYWAY, THAT'S RIGHT. ALRIGHT CAN SURE WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT THE FIRST ISSUE THEY BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION ABOUT THE. METRICS FOR THEIR PROPOSALS TO COME BACK FOR 50 MORE EVENTUALLY, UM ARE IS SOMEONE GOING TO DRAFT A PROPOSAL OR OKAY, WHAT DOES THE RFP SAY? GENERALLY ABOUT. PROVING FUTURE INCREASES IS IT'S SO VAGUE THAT TO ALLOW THIS KIND OF. PROPOSAL TO BE MADE TO US BY THE COMPANIES AS TO AS A PROCEDURE ON THE METRICS OR METRICS. OR C. IS SORT OF SECONDARY AT THIS POINT, SINCE YOU KNOW THE RPS. RESULTED IN AN AWARD RIGHT HAS RESULTED IN THE CONTRACT. AND THE CONTRACT. AMONG OTHER THINGS, OF COURSE, INCORPORATES BY REFERENCE. YOU KNOW THE CODE AND THE EXISTING REGULATIONS ADOPTED BY THIS COMMISSION. UM SO YOU KNOW, THAT KIND OF TAKES US BACK TO THE LANGUAGE THAT I WAS READING TO YOU IN TERMS OF FUTURE POST RFP INCREASES IN SPECIFIC OPERATOR SOMEBODY FLEET SHALL BE DETERMINED BY THE TLC.

BASED UPON REASONABLE AND OBJECTIVE CRITERIA TO BE DEVELOPED BY THE M. TLC INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO AN OPERATOR'S ABILITY AND WILLINGNESS TO ACHIEVE THE GOALS OF THIS CHAPTER. SO CERTAINLY, I THINK, UM. THE TWO CRITERIA THAT MR REID PROPOSED IN TERMS OF THE KIND OF ANALYSIS OF THE DEGREE OF RIDERSHIP PER SOMEDAY. UM UH, YOU KNOW, CAN BE COULD BE ONE OF THOSE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO. BUT THE MORE IMPORTANT ONE PERHAPS, IS THE COMPLIANCE WITH THE GOALS OF THE CHAPTER CHAPTER. 12 62. AND UM, SO ALL OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT DURING THIS MEETING OR PART OF THOSE GOALS, YOU KNOW, IDIOT COMPLIANCE IS A PART OF THOSE SCHOOLS.

UH ENSURING EQUITY AND AVAILABILITY IN ALL NEIGHBORHOODS IS PART OF THOSE GOALS. UM DOING PILOTS AS APART THOSE GOALS SO YOU KNOW YOU'RE. DISCUSSING ALL THE RIGHT THINGS I GUESS IS WHAT I'M SAYING. BUT, UM UH. YES I THINK THAT THE DIVISION OF THAT CODE PROVISIONS UM WOULD BE THAT YOU ALL WOULD ACTUALLY ADOPT A RULE WITH SOME OBJECTIVE CRITERIA FOR FLEET INCREASES. AND MAYBE FEARFULLY DECREASES. IF, UM IF UH, ON, UM UH, YOU KNOW, THE COMPANIES ARE NOT COMPLYING WITH THE RULES AND THE CODE PROVISIONS AS THEY SHOULD BE SO UM, I THINK THAT IS, UM.

WITHIN YOUR DISCRETION AND YOUR RULE MAKING AUTHORITY. YOU, MR STONER. ALL RIGHT. WELL, THANK YOU, MR WE WILL LOOK FORWARD TO IN YOUR PROPOSAL. SEND ON BEHALF. WHAT I READ OUT AND WRITING TO THE COMMISSION. AND WE'LL BE GLAD TO GET ANY ADDITIONAL FEEDBACK AND HOPEFULLY BACK HERE NEXT MONTH. FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHAT THAT MATTER IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE. THANK YOU. NEXT TIME ON THE ON THE AGENDA IS UNDER LOW SPEED VEHICLES. WE HAVE TWO DRIVER APPLICATIONS MARILIA WEATHERS AND TERRY MOORE. FIELDS WHEN MISS CHOIR WAS COMPLETED APPLICATION SHE FAILED TO DISCLOSE 2010 AND 17. DO YOU CHARGE AND LEAVING THE SCENE? SHE'S QUALIFIED, BUT SHE FAILED TO LISTEN.

MS CUEVAS. NOT HERE. MM BERYLLIUM QUIVERS. NOT PRESIDENT. AND WE HEARD ANYTHING FROM HER. AFFECT ANYTHING. ALL RIGHT. LOOKS LIKE WE'VE GOT A COUPLE OPTIONS HERE. WE CAN DEFER HER TWO NEXT MONTH. WE COULD DENY THE APPLICATION. I MEAN, WE COULD APPROVE IT IN THEORY, BUT. IS NOT HERE TO EXPLAIN WHY SHE DIDN'T DISCLOSE THE EARLIER. ISSUES AND MAKE A MOTION TO DEFER TO THE NEXT MEETING. GIVE HER A CHANCE TO SHOW UP. SECOND ALL THOSE IN FAVOR MOTION PASSES. MR MOORE. WELL. OH, AND MAKING THE APPLICATION. I BELIEVE HE DISCLOSED EVERYTHING. HOWEVER HE HAD A VERY LENGTHY RECORD. UH INTERVIEWING IT AGAIN. WE BELIEVE THAT HE QUALIFIES AGAIN. IT'S LENGTHY ENOUGH. UH, BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU SAW. WHAT IS HE APPLYING TO DRIVE? LOW SPEED VEHICLE. GOLF COURT OVER OKAY. AND YOU'VE ALREADY GOT A. AN OFFER FROM GEORGE ROD.

IS THAT RIGHT? YES, SIR. THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS THAT WERE DISMISSED THAT LISTED ON HIS RECORD AND FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND. HE'S NOT MISREPRESENTING ME. YEAH AFTER NOW THAT WE'RE AWARE OF, YOU KNOW, I HAVE TO HAVE TO GIVE YOU A CREDIT. MR MR MOORE. YOU CERTAINLY DID IDENTIFY EVERYTHING, EVEN THE ONES THAT TOWARD NO CONVICTION AND DISMISSALS. AND THEN A LOT OF THESE ARE ALSO PROBATION VIOLATIONS THAT HE'S LISTED, UM. I'M ASSUMING THERE WERE SOME DIFFICULTIES WHILE YOU'RE ON PROBATION AND YOU'VE GOT VIOLATIONS, AND THEN YOU GOT BACK AND COMPLIANCE. YES, SIR.

PROBABLY ALL STEMMING FROM THE ORIGINAL CHARGE THAT YOU REPLACED ON PROBATION FOR RIGHT. TO MAKE MY OBSERVATION IS THAT MANY OF THESE ARE NOT NECESSARILY NEW OFFENSIVE. WHAT WAS THE THERE'S A SEPTEMBER 15TH 2020. THEFT OF. $1000 AND YOU PLAYED GUILTY TO A LESSER CHARGE. COULD YOU TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT? YES UH, I WAS CONVICTED OF THAT AND I ACTUALLY JUST SERVE TIME FOR THAT. I JUST TOOK A 45 DAY SENTENCE FOR IT, OKAY? AND YOU HAD ANOTHER ONE IN 2019.

WHAT ARE THE CIRCUIT AND THEN WATCH. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S ONE IN 2016. WHERE WERE YOU? WHERE YOU. WHERE WE ORDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THOSE. ELVIS HAD A SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROBLEM. AND, UH, I'VE SINCE SEAT OUT FOR THAT, AND. COMPLETED AND 98 PROGRAM FOR THAT, AND, UH, AS WELL AS THE 28 DAY PROGRAM. BUT THAT WAS MAINLY THE REASON THAT I WAS DOING THE THINGS I WAS DOING. YOU KNOW IT WAS. IT WASN'T THAT I WAS A BAD PERSON PER SE. IT WAS JUST I WAS DOING WHAT I HAD TO DO TO SUPPORT MY HABIT. HONESTLY. WHERE MOST OF THESE CHARGES OUT OF DAVIDSON COUNTY. YEAH. IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE ANY FELONY CONVICTIONS. NO, NO, SIR. BUT THE FELTON WE DID HAVE FELONY CHARGES, BUT THEY WERE REDUCED TO MISDEMEANORS.

YES, SIR. WHAT WERE YOU STEALING? OH, JUST DIFFERENT STUFF LIKE. ELECTRONICS AND JEWELRY, LITTLE STUFF LIKE THAT. WAL MART AND. BELIEVE THAT THERE WAS, YEAH, MAINLY WALMART AND, UH, ONE OF THEM WAS A LAPTOP THAT ACTUALLY BELONGED TO MY WIFE. BUT IT WAS MINE AS WELL. WE BOUGHT IT TOGETHER AND I WAS CHARGED FOR PAWNING IT. YOUR WIFE CHARGED YOU? SHE DID? YEAH. STILL MARRIED NOW WE'RE GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE RIGHT NOW. IMAGINE THAT. YEAH. SHE DROPPED THE CHARGES, THOUGH. NO, SHE DIDN'T. SHE ACTUALLY. PRESS THEM, BUT THEY DROPPED IT TO A LESSER CHARGE. IT WAS $1000 LAPTOP, AND THEY, UH THEY CHARGED ME WITH A GRAND THEFT I BELIEVE FOR THAT. ALL RIGHT. I THINK THAT'S THE ONE HE'S SPEAKING OF FROM 2016. AND IT WAS DROPPED TO A LESSER CHARGE. JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY. WHAT WAS THE ITEM THAT YOU WERE ALLEGED TO HAVE STOLEN? THAT WAS $2500 OR MORE? UH, WHAT DATE WAS IT? SEPTEMBER 5TH 2020. OH IT WAS JEWELRY. IT WAS JEWELRY. THEY DIDN'T HAVE A EXACT NUMBER. LIKE ON ON WHAT I SUPPOSEDLY HAD TAKEN. SO THEY THINK THAT THEY JUST GUESSED. MM. THERE WEREN'T ANY KIND OF PRICE TAGS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

GETS IT'S LEGIT. PART OF YOUR BACK. TO ASK IN 2000 AND EIGHT I SEE THEY WEREN'T DISMISSED. BUT. I FELT DOMESTIC BODILY INJURY. YES, MA'AM. SAME IN 2011. AND MAKE AN ORDER OF PROTECTION. SO SWELLED IN 2011. ONE OF THOSE WAS A. TOOK 1008 WAS AGAINST GIRL I WAS DATING AND SUPPOSEDLY.

WE HAD A DOMESTIC DISPUTE. THERE WASN'T ANY KIND OF PHYSICAL ALTERCATION. THERE'S MORE OF AN ARGUMENT. UH, BUT THEY DID ARREST ME FOR THAT. I WENT AND MADE BOND ON THAT CHARGE, AND THEY DISMISSED IT BECAUSE SHE CAME TO COURT AND THERE WASN'T ANY. IT WASN'T ANY KIND OF PHYSICAL THING, BUT APPARENTLY IS YOU'RE SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS AND POLICE SHOW UP. THEY HAVE TO TAKE SOMEBODY IN CHARGE FOR THAT. AND THE 2011 WAS A SIMILAR THING. GIRLFRIEND THAT I WAS LIVING WITH. IT WAS A SCREAMING MATCH PRETTY MUCH AND WE BOTH WENT TO JAIL FOR THAT, AND. I HAD CALLED SOME OTHER CHARGES THAT THEY JUST RAN THAT TOGETHER WITH. SO I JUST PLAYED OUT TO IT THAT THEY DIDN'T HAVE ANY KIND OF LIKE. PHYSICAL. I DIDN'T BATTER HER ANYTHING. IT WASN'T. BUT I JUST PLAYED OUT SO I COULD GET A GOOD DEAL LIKE A PLEA DEAL ON PROBATION.
