The Charleston City Council unanimously approved authorizing the execution of the Towing of Vehicles Agreement on Tuesday evening.  

The Towing of Vehicle Agreement is an agreement between the Charleston Police Department and local towing agencies. The agreement “establishes guidelines for the towing of vehicles in accordance with applicable state laws and City of Charleston general ordinances,” according to the policy.  

Charleston Mayor Brandon Combs said that the City of Charleston Police Department contracts with three local towing companies, “and it is that time of the year to extend the agreements for another year with these same three towing companies.”  

Combs said that the towing fees will not change.  

Combs also announced the appointment of David Curtis Schaefer to a five-year term on the Coles County Memorial Airport Authority Board. The Council unanimously approved the Mayor’s appointment.
