Its regulations are thickets, its bureaucrats nit-pickers, its public officials aloof. At least thatâ??s how many businesspeople view the city.
The latest controversy pits the city against a man who wants to start a rickshaw service. Chris Waggoner wants to hire a few workers to pedal people around downtown Bloomington. Waggoner likes Scottish pedicabs, and he thinks people here would, too.
But the city has handed the matter to its attorney to see if the city would open itself to liability.
On the one hand, the cityâ??s caution seems prudent; on the other hand, it has a tinge of overreach.
What do you think?
