HARTLAND — The Village Board chose to table a discussion regarding a startup company that has proposed pedicab services in the village.

At a Monday night meeting, trustees felt they did not have enough information on the business operations of Lake Country Pedicab, a taxicab service that provides rides to residents using a rickshaw.

The rickshaw or pedicab is a two or three-wheeled passenger cart that is pedaled like a bicycle. Jared Slawinski, owner of Lake Country Pedicab, would offer rides throughout downtown Hartland to and from community events, according to Slawinski’s plan of operation.

The fare would range from $10 to $15 per ride with two passengers at a time. Lake Country Pedicab would only operate on approved streets, paths and parkways, according to the plan of operation.
