BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore City Council is considering a bill that would create new rules for valet companies and make them accountable to the Baltimore City Parking Authority.

Councilman William Cole’s plan would require city valet companies to apply for a license and file a detailed plan for how
their services would operate. The Baltimore Sun reports the parking authority currently controls where valet services may set up, but it doesn’t have the ability to require them to use off-street parking or prove that employees have valid driver’s licenses.

A co-owner of three Harbor East restaurants with valet parking says the legislation is “reactionary” and that parking companies that offer poor service won’t last even if there are new rules.

The parking authority says about 100 valet services operate in Baltimore.
