16.40.230 Vehicle Decal and Taxiplate Renewals.

A.  Company permittees must pay a renewal fee in the amount outlined in the Fee Table in Section 16.40.590 for each decaled and taxiplated vehicle no later than 1 month prior to the decal or taxiplate’s expiration date.


B.  If the permittee fails to pay the renewal fee or provide other renewal information as required by Subsection 16.40.230 A., the vehicle decal or taxiplate is deemed abandoned and the vehicle decal or taxiplate becomes void within 30 days of its original expiration date.


C.  Voided vehicle decals and taxiplates are not renewable in the year following their voidance.


D.  Once a vehicle decal or taxiplate is voided, a for-hire transportation company may not renew that decal or taxiplate and instead must complete the initial application process if the company seeks a decal or taxiplate for that vehicle.


E.  With the exception of pedicabs, vehicle decals and taxiplates will not be renewed unless the vehicle passes the safety inspection test outlined in Subsection 16.40.190 G. and the permittee provides the City with a Certificate of Safety.


F.  No decal or taxiplate will be issued as a renewal if any condition exists that would have been grounds for denial of the initial decal or taxiplate.
