EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - The city of Eugene has granted Uber’s request for a delay in its appeal hearing.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/2GXQ2f ) the hearing had been set for Monday and a new date hasn’t been scheduled.

Meanwhile, Uber and city officials continue to negotiate an agreement that would put the ride-sharing company in compliance with city regulations.

The city began fining Uber after the company failed to obtain a transportation license that officials contend is required for operation.

Uber maintains it is not subject to the licensing requirement.



The city has fined the San Francisco-based company $2,000 a day since Dec. 15. The total is up to about $100,000.
