This ordinance is sponsored by Councilmember Satterfield and adds Chapter 4.26 “Velocabs” to Title 4 “Business Licenses Regulations” of the Bloomington Municipal Code. Chapter 4.26 requires that all persons wishing to operate a velocab within the City of Bloomington obtain an operator’s license, adhere to numerous safety equipment requirements, follow safe operating practices, submit to an independent safety inspection, and carry velocab-specific liability insurance. The Chief of Police and/or the Director of Public Works must approve the streets upon which velocab operators wish to operate. The ordinance calls for the Council to revisit this provision one year after the ordinance’s effectiv date and revise the ordinance as necessary.Note: On December 16, 2009, the Council adopted Ord 09-23 with the adoption of Am 1, which made a number of changes to clarify the requirements of the ordinance and to correct scrivener’s errors. The amendment eliminated the provision of the ordinance prohibiting any lighting in excess of the lighting requirements provided by the ordinance and replaced this provision with a prohibition again
