Bicycle Ordinance One Step Closer to Removal

Staff     1-27,2016


The City of Cheyenne is one step closer to eliminating bicycle licenses. The city council passed on second reading an ordinance that would eliminate the rarely used bike licensing law currently on the books. Cheyenne Police Chief Brian Kozak says the original intent of the licensing was to have a database for reference in case a bike was stolen. He says, with today’s technology, the license isn’t really necessary.

Kozak says it would also be very difficult for the department to enforce the law with their limited resources.

Councilwoman Annette Williams was the only vote against getting rid of the licenses. The issue now moves on to a third and final vote at the next council meeting
