January 28, 1958. <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Camphouse, Jacobi, Phillips, Reibold and Dennis <br />None <br /> <br />The applications for one additional cab license each for Red and <br />lVhite Cab Company and one for the San Gabriel Yellow Cab Company <br />had been taken under advisement at the regular meeting of January <br />21, 1958 pending the report of the City Manager as to the number <br />of cabs operating in Arcadia. At said meeting Mr. LeMoyne Bailey <br />of the Arcadia-Monrovia Valley Cab Company had objected to the <br />granting of additional licenses; his contention being that there <br />are a sufficient number of taxicabs operating in the City of <br />Arcadia at the present time to adequately meet its needs. <br /> <br />The City Manager reported that at the present time there are 30 <br />taxicabs operating in the City of Arcadia of which the Arcadia- <br />Monrovia Valley Cab Company operates 22 cabs, including the four <br />approved at the January 21, 1958 Council meeting; Green and ~1hite <br />Cab Company of Los Angeles operates 1 cab; Red and White Cab <br />Company of South San Gabriel operates 2 cabs; and San Gabriel <br />Yellow Cab Company of San Gabriel operates 2 cabs. Also one <br />license each is held by Harry Erickson, Philip Hirschkoff and <br />Fred Murset, all of Los Angeles, who operate a limousine service <br />during the race track season. <br /> <br />The City Manager also reported that neighboring cities queried on <br />the matter had advised that they set no maximum on the number of <br />cabs licensed. One city reported that if an objection is filed <br />to an addition to number of cabs operating, the company objecting <br />must prove to the satisfaction of the City Council that there are <br />sufficient cabs to take care of the needs and that any additional <br />cabs licensed would work a hardship on existina cab companies. <br /> <br />Mr. John Popp, otvner of San Gabriel Yellow Cab Company, addressed <br />Council, stating that the reason for the request for a license <br />to operate one additional cab was more or less for the race track <br />season, but that he did transport school children, particularly <br />handicapped and blind school children; that the use of his cabs for <br />school children was annually a matter of being accepted on bid. <br />In answer to ~~yor Dennis' inquiry as to his percentage of business <br />during the racing season, ~~. Popp said he thouaht approximately <br />50%. <br /> <br />Mr. James Greer, owner of the Red and White Cab Company, addressed <br />Council, stating that his primary reason for requesting a license <br />for an additional cab was one of flexibility in order to have <br />another cab available to operate in Arcadia when his other <br />vehicles were in use, or unavailable. <br /> <br />A general discussion then ensued, at which time Councilmen <br />Camphouse, Phillips, Reibold and Mayor Dennis questioned Messrs. <br />Popp and Greer as to ,the number of trips made each day during <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />1-28-58 <br />
