Thank you Councilman Frazier! And folks, you can make a difference, too. Contact your elected representatives, ask them to step up and call on the PUC to hold a full hearing on Mile High Cab. And while you're at it, send a note to Mr. Doug Dean, director of the PUC, at Doug.Dean@dora.state.co.us
Here's Councilman Frazier's powerful letter.

Re: Mile High Cab, Inc. Docket 08A-407CP Decision #R-10-0745
Dear Commissioner Binz, Tarpey and Baker:
I am an At-Large member of the Aurora City Council. I have reviewed the application of Mile High Cab, Inc., the decision by Judge Gomez and the response to the decision filed by Mile High Cab, Inc.
Mile High Cab, Inc. will provide services that are badly needed to my constituents. It is extremely difficult to get a cab to come to either residences or businesses in Aurora. This makes it difficult for seniors to get to and from their doctor’s appointments or shop for groceries. It poses a safety problem as those who have had too much to drink are unable to get cab service. Mile High’s proposal of more cabs with lower fares and no charges for extra passengers will fill a void that exists in Aurora.
I have reviewed the decision in the matter of Mile High Cab, Inc. rendered by Administrative Law Judge Paul Gomez. I believe that the decision is erroneous and should be reversed by the full Public Utilities Commission. It is in the best interest of the public that you approve this application. Judge Gomez’s own decision states that this group has the management capability and financial resources to do the job. Competition is, by definition, good and this application should be approved.
If I can answer any questions you have with respect to the impact on the City of Aurora please do not hesitate to contact me.
Ryan L. Frazier
Council Member, At-Large
City of Aurora, CO
