Panama City Beach- Following a heated debate on the topic of scooter regulations, the Panama City Beach City Council didn't take any action at their meeting Thursday.
The police department wants to remove what's called cross colateralization from the current ordinance. The way it's worded now businesses can keep the maximum $100 deposit from everyone in a party even if only one scooter is damaged.
At Thursday's meeting, California Cycles Co-Owner Colleen Swab claimed authorities were picking on her shop with the proposed changes.
"Why this now became an issue after it's been in place for twenty years, I mean it just all of a sudden overnight it's just now it doesn't work anymore? I mean that doesn't sound right," said Swab.
The council ultimately decided not to vote on the proposed change yet. In the meantime, Panama City Beach City Attorney Douglas Sale said he'll meet with California Cycle's lawyer before the council revisits the issue.
