A question of fairness is brewing between an electric scooter company and the cities of South Bend and Elkhart.
While the City of South Bend receives $10,000 annually for expenses related to Bird’s electric scooters, the deal with the City of Elkhart’s deal with the same company doesn’t include such compensation, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth.
The question about the deal has come up after Elkhart recently put up new safety signs costing around $900.
Still, The Elkhart Truth reports Mayor Rod Roberson as saying the city isn’t going to immediately seek a new agreement with Bird.
He did say the question will come up at the end of the annual year, though others believe the city should try to renegotiate or cancel the contract.
