St. Louis Metropolitan Taixcab Sunshine Request Fees
Organized by: Mike Ziegler
The latest response from the Metropolitan Taxicab Commission: They want more money to deliver the comments and complaints.
In early June, I submitted a sunshine request for all complaints and comments submitted to the agency in the last 18 months. The responded requiring a $350 deposit, which was earlier crowdfunded and sent.
Now they are requiring an additional $150 to deliver the documents.
Their final request bill: $490.40
That means I need to crowdfund that additional $150. Those funds will go toward the $80 in expenses charged by the MTC not covered by the initial $350 deposit.
The remaining will be used for copying the 602 documents…again. They are charging for two sets, one for themselves and for delivery, for a total of $120.00. That is unheard of.
Upon delivery of the documents, I will review the documents, compile any findings, and scan the full set and make it available online for all to review.
