JOHNSON: "CITY DOESN'T GET ANY MONEY FROM DUI ARRESTS"

By Nate Gonner 4/2/2013

             THE CITY ADMINISTRATOR OF NEBRASKA CITY IS CLEARING UP ALLEGATIONS THAT THE CITY HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE SHUTDOWN OF THE SAFE RIDE SHUTTLE SERVICE IN TOWN.

 

              THE SHUTTLE, CREATED BY NEBRASKA CITY RESIDENTS TRAVIS GILLESPIE AND FRANK TROMBINO IN FEBRUARY, WAS SHUTDOWN AFTER ST PATRICK’S DAY AFTER AN ANYOMOUS CALLER TOLD THE NEBRASKA PUBLIC SERVICES COMMISSION THAT THE SHUTTLE’S DRIVERS WERE ACCEPTING TIPS FOR THEIR NOT FOR PROFIT BUSINESS.

 

              ACCORDING TO CITY ADMINISTRATOR JOE JOHNSON, HE HAS SEEN ALLEGATIONS ON THE SOCIAL MEDIA SITE FACEBOOK ACCUSING THE CITY OF SHUTTING DOWN THE SERVICE BECAUSE IT WAS HURTING THE CITY’S REVENUE THEY GOT FROM DUI’S.

 

              JOHNSON SAYS THE CITY DOESN’T GET A DIME WHEN IT COMES TO DUI ARRESTS.

 

              IN FACT, HE SAYS THE CITY LOSES MONEY WHEN ANY TYPE OF ARREST IS MADE, ESPECIALLY IN THE EVENT OF A DUI OR DWI ARREST.
