|I can't wait to see less taxis in KC|
All of these increases are rather egregious and show just how little the KC city council thinks of the drinking public. The drinking public uses liquor licensed businesses and use cabs more than the average Kansas Citian. While these fees are relatively small compared to the cost of starting, operating or further expanding a business, they are very real costs for very very little benefit. The real cost will be fewer cabs, fewer transportation options for someone who's had too much to drink and needs to get home and fewer successful bars and restaurants. I guess the city council of KC thinks they have enough bars, restaurants and cabs.
