(Washington, DC) Mayor Anthony A. Williams announced the appointment today of Causton Toney as the interim chair of the DC Taxicab Commission. He replaces Lee Williams while a search is undertaken for a new chairman. The DC Taxicab Commission is an independent agency which regulates, oversees and enforces laws for taxis, limos, sightseeing vehicles, and private ambulances for the District.
"I thank Lee Williams for his service and wish him well," said Mayor Williams. "Causton Toney is very familiar with the issues before the Taxicab Commission - he chaired the task force on taxicab reform which looked at best practices for regulating the taxicab industry. He will bring stability and direction to the staff and to the commission while he makes sure that the public is better served through better record-keeping, better information management and more effective deployment of hack inspectors."
Causton Toney currently serves as the Director of Legislation and Policy for the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development.
