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. 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, 2019

In January 2019, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics published a 3.0 percent increase in the CPI from October 2017 to September 2018. Because the change in CPI equals 3 percent, a percent change of 3.0 percent is appropriate and the rates and fees have increased 3.0 percent for Fiscal Year 2020. These changes are reflected in the links below and are effective October 1, 2019.
