Aldermen Overturn Mayor's Tow Fee Veto


Springfield aldermen have overridden Mayor Mike Houston’s veto of the ordinance that cuts the city’s towing fee in half.

 

Houston wanted to keep the higher $500 fee… noting that most of the vehicles towed by the city are because of drivers stopped for DUIs or suspended or revoked licenses.

 

But aldermen say the fee is just too high and creates a hardship for drivers.

 

Cutting the fee down to $250 could also create a $250,000 gap in the city budget for this fiscal year.
