§ 113.02  ISSUANCE OF LICENSE UPON DETERMINATION OF PUBLIC CONVENIENCE AND NECESSITY; PASSAGE OF RESOLUTION.
   (A)   No license for the operation of a taxicab shall be granted until the Common Council has adopted a resolution stating that public convenience and necessity require the operation of the taxicab for hire.
      (1)   In determining such public convenience and necessity, the Common Council shall consider the number of taxicabs now operating in the city.
      (2)   In the issuance of licenses, in addition to the number now operating, the Common Council shall consider whether the demands of the public require the additional taxicab service; the financial responsibility of the applicant; the number, kind and type of equipment; traffic conditions on the streets of the city; whether the additional taxicab service will result in a greater hazard to the public; and such other relative facts as the Common Council may deem advisable or necessary.
      (3)   The decision and judgment of the Common Council on the question of public necessity and convenience shall be conclusive.
   (B)   After the passage of such resolution of public convenience and necessity by the Common Council and upon the applicant’s compliance with the remaining provisions of this chapter and the furnishing of satisfactory proof thereof, the Clerk-Treasurer shall issue the taxicab license to such applicant.
