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.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
