PATERSON, NJ - Taxicab drivers would have to undergo annual drug tests under an ordinance scheduled for approval at Tuesday night's City Council meeting.

The requirement would apply to new applicants for city taxicab licenses as well as for those seeking renewals.

The ordinance also would increase taxi license fees. The cost of an annual registration would jump from $250 per vehicle to $350. Also, the annual city license for drivers would rise from $25 to $75.

The council has scheduled a public hearing on the proposal at its 7 pm meeting at City Hall.
