Every year cab companies in the city must file their request for a Certificate of Connivence, a permit that allows them to operate, but Mighty Cab failed to do so in time.
Tonight, the Evansville City Council decided to hold this special meeting to vote on whether or not to grant the permit to the company, but not all council members were present tonight including Council President Connie Robinson.
The vote was 7-0 in favor of granting Mighty Cab their permit but not after asking what owner John Noback would do to ensure this slip up doesn't happened again.
"We're still trying to navigate through some of the state and local regulations," said Noback, "and keep the business going and deal with the growth that we've had. So, every day's a new challenge."
There was some question raised as to whether or not the company's insurance played a factor in obtaining the permit.
Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley stated the company's insurance ran out on December 12th of this year, but Noback says the confusing occurred because he was switching insurance companies.
