220225 01.ResolutionSubstitute resolution directing the Department of Public Works to conduct a dockless motorized scooter pilot study.

Minutes note: Jerrel Kruschke, Mike Amsden and Kate Riordan from DPW. Mr. Kruschke explained that it is the 3rd pilot program for the scooters to put them out again for the period 2022-2023. He added that some differences from last year are: the fees and the number of scooters from 3,000 to 1,800 and that there will be a provision to terminate the program if the provider fails to comply. He said that they expect to work with 3 operators and that it may take 6 weeks to see it in full operation and, that they will work together developing a plan for the winter months. Ald. Borkowski asked what the companies will do for the scooters left across the sidewalks. Ms. Riordan said that the companies are requesting to submit a photo of where/how the scooter was left/parked to determine if it was correct or not. Ald. Bauman asked what companies will do about the underage riding. Ms. Riordan said that there's no age limit to ride the scooters per state and city ordinances and that the city cannot do anything about it. Ald. Borkowski moved approval. There were no objections.
