Island tackles dockless scooters, rental golf carts

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND — A few ordinances regarding vehicular modes of transportation were passed during a city council meeting held this past week. City Council members unanimously approved the first reading of an ordinance prohibiting the rental and/or leasing of dockless motor assisted scooters on city property. As per the ordinance, dockless rental/leased scooters left abandoned in the city for seven days will be impounded. Owners of improperly parked impounded dockless scooters will then need to provide proof of ownership and pay a $100 administrative fee for the release of each dockless scooter. The ordinance is meant to deter rental/ leasing companies from dropping off their scooters in the city. “This is just to get ahead of the problems that the cities of Dallas, San Antonio and everybody have where they’re just leaving these things in people’s yards and whatever,” Mayor Patrick McNulty explained during the meeting. Back in February, council members unanimously approved an ordinance that temporarily prohibited the rental and/or leasing of motor-assisted scooters on the Island for 180 days.
