ORDINANCE NO. BL2006-1236
An ordinance amending Section 6.80.330(A) of the Metropolitan Code of Laws.
WHEREAS, Section 6.80.330(A) of the Metropolitan Code of Laws permits the Metropolitan Transportation Licensing Commission to conduct criminal background checks of applicants for wrecker driver permits; and,
WHEREAS, the Transportation Licensing Commission currently conducts such background checks only to determine Davidson County criminal history; and,
WHEREAS, concern for public safety dictates that the Metropolitan Transportation Licensing Commission should conduct a more thorough background check for wrecker driver permit applicants; and,
WHEREAS, the cost of conducting a more thorough background investigation would exceed the current amount of ten dollars that is assessed to each applicant.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1. That Section 6.80.330(A) of the Metropolitan Code of Laws shall be amended by replacing the phrase "plus an additional ten dollars for an investigation" with the phrase "plus the cost of investigation."
Section 2. This ordinance shall take effect from and after its final passage, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
