Towing

 Towing

  

On October 14, 2014, the Broward County Board of County Commissioners enacted a new ordinance regulating companies that tow or immobilize motor vehicles in Broward County. The ordinance had an effective date of April 1, 2015. All businesses that tow vehicles in Broward County, both consent and nonconsent, must have a license by April 1, 2015. Sections 40.50 and 27.150(f)(6) of the Broward County Administrative Code require both licensing fees and nonconsent towing rates to be reviewed annually prior to October 1st and increased by either the annual percentage change in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) or 3 percent, whichever is less.

Rates and Fees Effective October 1, 2018

In January 2018, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics published a 2.3 percent increase in the CPI from October 2016 to September 2017. Because the change in CPI is less than 3 percent, a percent change of 2.3 percent is appropriate and the rates and fees have increased 2.3 percent for Fiscal Year 2019. These changes are reflected in the links below and are effective October 1, 2018.
