As of the end of business today, 79 “Intent to Apply” forms for the new taxicab vehicle permits have been received by the License Division of City Clerk’s office.

In November 2013 the Common Council adopted legislation to increase the number of taxicab permits in Milwaukee, and today was the first day that applicants could submit “Intent to Apply” forms to apply for one of the new permits.

“The response that we have seen from local residents regarding the increase in taxicab permits has been excellent,” Alderman Robert J. Bauman said. “In essence, the legislation gives a much needed boost to those who are looking to start their own small business, and today we’re seeing a great start to this process.”

Taxicab permit applications will be accepted until February 28, 2014. The new legislation allows 100 new permits to be issued, and if more than 100 “Intent to Apply” forms are received by the February 28, 2014 deadline, a lottery drawing will be held to determine the recipients of the new permits. An applicant needs to submit a $100 check or money order, obtain a notice of intent to apply from the Licenses Division and return it by February 28.
