Benway's Taxi & Morf Transportation is closing.

FOX44 & ABC22 received a fax from the owner Monday night.

Wanda Robar cites insurance issues as the reason for closing. She said policies that are scheduled to be renewed are just not realistic for a company that size.  Robar indicates she did try to sell Benway's to a larger company.

In the letter, robar does mention her husband Paul, who passed away three years ago.

Benways and Morf had been in business for 30 years.

Taxis will stop rolling Saturday, July 5th.

Someone who works for the company says between 60 to 80 people will lose their jobs.
