Towing Ordinance

The Office of Consumer Protection is tasked with the enforcement of towing companies.

  • Towing companies must notify local law enforcement of the date and time of the tow.
  • Towing companies may only charge the maximum rates as allowed by the ordinance.
  • Immobilization companies or “booters” may only charge $35.00 per incident.

On December 10, 2019, the Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance 19-39, amending sections 122-38, 122-42, and 122-45 of the towing ordinance. The effective date of these changes is December 20, 2019.
