A.  Upon successful completion of the vehicle or pedicab decal/taxiplate application process and payment of the required permit fee as outlined in the Fee Table in Section 16.40.590, the Administrator will issue a vehicle identification decal bearing a bar code and the city seal for each LPT vehicle or pedicab that qualifies, and the Administrator will issue a taxiplate bearing a unique City-issued number for each taxicab that qualifies.


B.  Decals and taxiplates are valid for a period of no more than 12 months from the date of issuance, and all decals and taxiplates expire on the same day as the expiration of the LPT or Taxi Company permit with which they are affiliated.  Fees for decals and taxiplates that are not issued contemporaneously with a company permit will be prorated to equal the cost of the number of months remaining until the company permit expires.


C.  Decals must be affixed to the vehicle’s front and back window in a manner outlined by administrative rule.  


D.  Taxiplates must be affixed to the trunk, tailgate or rear bumper of the taxicab.

F.  Permittees may not operate any substitute vehicle or pedicab until the substitute vehicle or pedicab has passed the safety inspection process and has a decal or taxiplate affixed to it.


G.  Decals that are intentionally destroyed or damaged by the permittee prior to renewal and without the City’s authorization are not subject to renewal.
