City officials are working on a new way for people to get around town using rented electric scooters.

After going back and forth for a few years about regulations regarding electric scooter rentals, companies are now getting the green light to come to the capital city.

The departments of Public Works and Transportation and Drainage will now put a plan together as to where to stage the scooters and what specific regulations will be in place.

They're also still working on the permit process and ironing out where people will be able to ride the scooters, as well as other safety issues.

Officials are hopeful the scooters will be ready to rent by January of 2021.
