It will provide wireless internet

The city's director of Economic

Yesterday, city council voted to
begin the process of finding towing
companies that would be willing to form
a contract with the city to provide
police requested services.

Under the city's current system,
two vehicles involved in an accident
could be charged vastly differing
amounts for the same service -- if
performed by different companies.

The city hopes by having an
EXCLUSIVE contract with one or more
companies will make the pricing more
fair.
