OXFORD, Mississippi — The Oxford City Council is holding a public hearing Aug. 5 on revisions made to the city's taxi ordinance to address complaints by cab drivers.

The city heard comments in June on an initial change to the ordinance.

After taking comments, The Oxford Eagle reports ( the council took steps this week to revise the revision.

In June, cab drivers opposed changing the rate fee from $10 a person to $10 for the first person and $5 for each additional person going to the same place.

On Tuesday, the council went back to $10 for each person in the cab going to the same location and $2.50 for each additional stop.

The council made other changes to be addressed at the public hearing.
