Moreno Valley tow truck operators could get rotation system
By LAURIE LUCAS The Press-Enterprise
Tow truck drivers in Moreno Valley may finally get an official rotation system.
Under the proposed city-wide fee schedule for fiscal year 2010-11, tow truck operators would pay an application fee of $2,828 for a five-year contract and post a $5,000 deposit to cover administrative costs. Owners of towed cars would have to pay $74 to recover their vehicles.
The City Council is expected to vote on the fee schedule tonight after a public hearing , which starts at 6:30 p.m. State law requires that municipalities can only charge fees to recover costs, not to make profits.
