Committee discusses impound fee

By on February 18, 2011

Elburn—The Elburn Village Board on Monday discussed an ordinance regarding the seizure and impounding of vehicles in connection with offenses such as drugs and DUIs.

Those arrested would pay $250 in administration fees in addition to towing and storage costs as determined by the towing company.

“We need to cover our costs,” Village President Dave Anderson said. “We’re responsible for the vehicle until a licensed towing company arrives.”

The impounded vehicle will only be released to its owner when all fees are paid in full.
