Kenner City Council reconsiders ordinance.

After passing legislation that would have run ride sharing out of the city, the KennerCouncil voted to reconsider and then defer the ordinance passed last Thursday. It will be discussed at the next regular meeting. So as of right now it is as if no ordinance was passed.

I spoke to Mayor Zahn who said that the amendments to that legislation will be posted online soon. From what I gather it will remove the requirements to have an occupational license and eliminate the fee structure from the airport that Uber objected to.

If passed as amended it seems that Uber and Lyft would agree to the wording and Ride sharing would no longer be at risk in Kenner.
