An administrative towing fee is established and the Department of Police is authorized to charge an administrative towing fee in the amount of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) to the owner of any vehicle seeking release of the vehicle from impound. The administrative towing fee shall not be applicable in the event that the vehicle is not returned to or claimed by the owner and shall be in addition to any fee that is charged by any agency for a police ordered tow of a vehicle. The fee may be increased from time to time by the Director of Public Safety to reflect the actual increase in costs associated with processing the police ordered tow of a vehicle. The Director of Public Safety shall notify Council of such increases not less than thirty days prior to the effective date of the increase.
