Council unable to pull rank over government

INDUSTRY CONCERN: Lake City Taxis driver Shane Brown said he was concerned about the future of the city’s taxi industry, given a by-law in place to ensure 24/7 operating hours will lapse next year.

MOUNT Gambier City Council will be unable to replace its taxi regulation by-law in 2019 and will hand over responsibility for regulation of the city’s taxi services to the State Government.

The legislation that permitted council to make taxi by-laws was revoked in 2016 – removing council’s power to regulate the city’s taxis after the current by-law
