Uber/Lyft back on Little Rock City Board calendar

Posted By on Sat, Aug 16, 2014 at 6:32 AM

The agenda for the Little Rock City Board meeting Tuesday again includes a discussion of Uber and Lyft, the cell phone-driven car services that have come to other cities and already stirred some opposition here.

It's the last item on a long agenda. It was on last week's agenda, too, but the discussion of private club closing hours went so long that directors didn't take up Uber. So it can't be said for sure if the directors will get to the subject next week either.

The private clubs are on Tuesday's agenda, too: First up is the club-agreed measure to provide additional security at those places, nine currently, that stay open until 5 a.m. Next up is Director Brad Cazort's proposal to set closing time at 2 a.m., except 3 a.m. two days a week. That idea met a lot of board resistance.

The board meeting begins at 6 p.m.

  • Not giving up on Fred

    We ended up adopting Fred due to his incorrigible stubbornness. Originally bred to track game, basset hounds can be amazingly persistent. It sometimes appears that when their noses are working, their hearing shuts down.
  • Private clubs win early closing battle

    Private clubs apparently have won their battle against earlier closing hours, based on a "compromise" revealed at the City Board meeting last night.
  • Prosecutors have all the power

    But little oversight. Is a violation not a violation if a prosecutor says, 'I didn't mean to'?
  • The Kochs, Tom Cotton and their dislike of helping farmers

    The Koch political lobby is trying mightily to pretend it supports American farmers and that Tom Cotton's vote against the farm bill isn't a measure of farm support. A new report from a Democratic organization blows that dishonest messaging out of the water.
  • Lawsuit says Crittenden Regional Hospital charged employees for health insurance premiums but never paid claims

    A lawsuit filed on Friday in the Circuit Court of Crittenden County alleges that at least beginning in 2014, Crittenden Regional Hospital (CRH) withheld money from employees' paychecks for health insurance premiums, but never actually paid the claims. That would potentially leave their employees on the hook for tens of thousands of dollars in medical care they were told was covered by their health insurance. The practice may have dated back even further, said Denny Sumpter, the attorney for the plaintiffs.
