TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! COUNCIL LADY CANADY TOWING UPDATE: KANSAS CITY PARKING CONTROL OFFICERS COULD SOON REMOVE ILLICIT CARS, TOO!!!
Remember not so long ago a Kansas City Council Lady was caught in a hot mess and doubted police authority to move her car . . .
Thanks to our KICK-ASS BLOG COMMUNITY . . .
HERE'S PASSAGE AND VERSE OF KANSAS CITY RULES PERTAINING TO CAR TOWING THAT ARE IN FRONT OF THE T&I COMMITTEE!!!
Take a look:
#160671 . . . From the fact sheet . . . This legislation would amend Code of Ordinances Sections 70-71, 70-73 and 70-522 relating to traffic and vehicles to give parking control officers the same authority as police officers when directing traffic at and emergency. The legislation would also give parking control officers and city employees acting pursuant to the direction of the director of public works the authority to remove vehicles obstructing roadways.
Our community of experts also notes that this applies to not just abandoned cars but un-tagged and therefore illicit vehicles as well.
To be fair . . . There are a lot of critics, insiders and citizens who call out stepped up towing efforts a part of revenue building efforts given shrinking KCMO funds . . .
