Resolution RS2018-1036 (as amended)

A resolution amending BL2017-984, as amended, to authorize wrecker companies to charge a winching fee and to charge an increased storage fee.

WHEREAS, BL2017-984, as amended, approved a rate increase for towing and recovery rates, due to an increase in expenses for equipment, insurance, taxes and fuel; and,

WHEREAS, as approved, there is contradictory language with respect to charging a winching fee that requires clarification; and,

WHEREAS, currently, the maximum storage of any car or pickup truck removed from private property is thirty dollars per day, and per the wrecker company request to the Transportation Licensing Commission, which was approved, the storage fee should be increased from thirty dollars to forty dollars per day to reflect the increase in expenses for equipment, insurance, taxes and fuel; and,

WHEREAS, amendments to BL2017-984 may be approved by resolution of the Metropolitan Council; and,
