City Cab Service license suspendedPublished 11:35am Thursday, February 20, 2014
The license of operation of City Cab Service in Fergus Falls was suspended Tuesday due a violation of city code, according to a letter from City Administrator Mark Sievert.
The city received a notice of cancellation from AMP Insurance stating that the insurance for City Cab Service was canceled due to lack of payment as of Feb. 10.
Monte Nelson, of City Cab Service, is out of compliance with the city because operating a taxicab business without insurance is a violation of city code.
A letter from Sievert, dated Feb. 18, was sent to Nelson stating that City Cab drivers must cease taxicab operations immediately and remove the City Cab Service signs from their vehicles.
An employee of City Cab Service is also not in compliance with city code, according to the letter.
The employee hasn’t provided the city with an updated medical examiner’s certificate, which expired Dec. 28.
Until the certificate has been renewed by a medical examiner, the employee will not be able to drive for any taxicab company.
Nelson has 30 days to request a hearing before the city administrator or to bring the license requirements into compliance, according to city code.
The letter informed Nelson that should the business continue to operate, he would be subject to criminal charges and administrative fines.
