Harriman City Council members have discussed complaints about compettition from outside business.
Councilman J.D. Sampson has even brought up the idea of limiting taxi businesses allowed.
Treasurer Charles Kerley suggested a permit fee that would level the playing field, and the cab businesses with city business licenses and paying personal property tax could deduct them from and up to the amount of the fee.
“There are some opportunities here I think to take some of the inequalities out of it,” Kerley said.
