Repealing MGO 12.781 which licenses bicycle dealers.


DRAFTER’S ANALYSIS:    This ordinance repeals licensing of bicycle dealers. Much of 12.781 was previously repealed in 2021 when the City repealed the overall system of mandatory bicycle registration. This ordinance repeals the remaining sections.



The Common Council of the City of Madison do hereby ordain as follows:


                     1.                     Section 12.781 entitled “Licensing of Bicycle Dealers” of the Madison General Ordinances is repealed.
