WESTMINSTER - City Council members have not given final approval for Carroll County Cab's fares within city limits since the company has not provided enough financial information to determine whether the charges are fair.
Councilman William F. Haifley suggested Monday night that the current fares -- $1.50 to begin the trip, $1.20 per mile and 30 cents per minute for waiting time -- stand until the next meeting. No further extensions will be granted.
A city ordinance requires council approval for taxicab fares. Carroll County Cab recently expanded their service into the city after the Westminster Taxi Service went out of business.
