It just got easier to get around El Reno or even to Oklahoma City.
At a city council meeting on Tuesday, a new taxi service business was approved for El Reno.
McGee TaxiCab will likely begin operation within a few days. The owner and sole cab driver, Georgia McGee, has been pushing this idea for a couple of weeks. She’s excited the road has been cleared for her.
“I just want to help my community,” McGee said. “There’s a big need for this service in El Reno.”
El Reno parted ways with City Manager Jeremy Frazier Tuesday night.
Frazier’s one-year contract was up for renewal at the January city council meeting. Council opted not to renew the contract, effectively ending Frazier’s time here.
A motion to renew the contract by Ward 4 council representative Tracey Rider died for lack of a second.
Mayor Matt White said Frazier was scheduled to meet with City Attorney Roger Rinehart and himself Wednesday afternoon to finalize details of the departure.
