Dallas City Council members went behind closed doors Wednesday to hear an independent investigation into how an ordinance cracking down on Uber, the app-based limo service, was rushed to a proposed vote.
The ordinance bypassed the council committee process and was presented for a vote after competitor Yellow Cab complained that the new transportation service was violating city regulations.
Following the closed-door meeting, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said he didn’t hear of any legal or ethical violations regarding the independent investigation. Instead, he said a series of bad decisions were made. He's troubled by the way city staff handled the ordinance.
