MURFREESBORO, N.C.—A taxi service may be coming to Murfreesboro, N.C.

Robert Joyner recently presented his proposal for the service to the Murfreesboro Town Council.

“I feel that it’s a service to the community,” Joyner told the Council. “As it is now I don’t think we have a taxi service and I think Murfreesboro is on its way up.”

He plans to operate the business from his home.

Mayor Pro-Tempore Sarah Wallace asked about the insurance for the business.

Joyner said he has spoken with an insurance company regarding specialty insurance.

“I would hate to go and get insurance without (the council’s) blessing,” he said.

Council agreed to allow Joyner to proceed with the application process.
