Boulder, Colorado to revisit rules on predatory towing

Boulder will revisit tighter towing rules in the near and distant future after a discussion over ways to limit impacts on low-income residents spanned several hours Thursday night.

City council did not pass an ordinance, continuing the second hearing so that tweaks could be incorporated into the suggested regulations. One of those included dropping a waiting period that was opposed by landlords and business owners who said it would encourage illegal parking.

The ordinance was brought forward after residents of San Juan Del Centro Apartments complained of rampant towing, including late-night disappearances of their vehicles. One resident spoke during the public hearing, describing his experiences through a translator.
