NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Mike Schumaker, Manager of Tow Services, stated that this ordinance was needed in order to penalize tow truck drivers for unscrupulous practices when dealing with the public. Along with high prices charged for tows a lot of the practices of trying to arrive to the scene of an accident are also dangerous. An increase in the penalty hopefully would act as a deterrent in these practices.
