(A)   The release of an impounded or immobilized vehicle is conditioned upon the payment of the penalty levied for the parking violations and any towing, holding and storage charges imposed thereon by the city or its designee, unless the owner or other person entitled to possession challenges the validity of the impoundment or immobilization pursuant to § 74.089 of this chapter.
   (B)   With respect to vehicles impounded by the city, in addition to the towing fees, the city will charge an administrative holding fee of 30% of the towing costs, plus any preliminary sale advertising expenses, and a storage fee of $20 per day for the first 14 days and $10 per day for each day thereafter for each vehicle until redeemed.
   (C)   An impounded vehicle may be released to the owner or other person entitled to possession only upon proof of ownership or right to possession. The city or its designee may require reasonable security, bond or other assurances of indemnification from a person who is not the registered owner of the vehicle prior to releasing the vehicle to such person.
