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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
