MILTON, Ga. — The city approved an amendment to the Milton code regarding taxicabs. In essence, this would allow taxicabs in the city.

Because there was nothing in the code addressing the issue, the new wording will place any tax company's office in a commercial location, instead of residential.

The council approved the change to the amendment concerning locations of taxi company offices.

"We don't require them to be located in Milton," Councilmember Matt Kunz said. "But if they are, we do require a commercial location, not a residential."
Members of the City Council approved the amendment 6-0. Councilmember Joe Longoria was absent.

Council also voted to approve an ordinance to adopt amendments to the city of Milton charter, with a 6-0 vote.

A resolution for the city to settle a dispute with Fulton County over the Local Option Sales Tax dispute to authorize Mayor Joe Lockwood to execute a certificate of distribution and other purposes was approved 6-0.

Kunz said other cities involved in the dispute would need the resolution also or another solution would need to be determined.

A consideration of a resolution to abandon a portion of public right-of-way on Black Oak Road was approved 6-0.
