​​​​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. Section 40.50 of the Broward County Administrative Code requires 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, 2023​

In January 2023, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics published a .7 percent increase in the CPI from December 2021 to December 2022. Fiscal year 2024 rates and fees will reflect this .7 percent increase.
