WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — West Lafayette is taking a second look at its proposed rules for Bird scooters. The city council will hold a special meeting next Monday to iron out some of the details.
As we previously reported, Bird was to remove 1,700 scooters from the city.
Monday night, the city council continued its discussion of other rules for the scooters after some disagreements over wording.
Many citizens talked about their issues with the electric scooters Monday.
Michael Lockwood said he is tired of having them sitting outside of his house.
"They're sort of becoming like weeds," said Lockwood. "They are sort of parked everywhere. I saw them parked in curb cuts. I saw them parked on every corner and they just sort of grow up like a weed and that's when I was not happy."
The special meeting next Monday is at 6 p.m. The topic will then be discussed again at the next city council meeting the first Monday in February.
