The city also proposes a $5,000 annual operator fee, an annual charge of $100 per device placed in the city plus a $20 security deposit per device. The city would use the security deposit fund to pay for moving the bikes, scooters or e-bikes to appropriate locations or removing them.

The city would charge the company $100 per bike or scooter moved. For every day the devices have to be kept in city storage beyond 30 days, companies will be charged $5.
