16.30.530 When Tow Found Invalid.

A.  The accrued towing and storage charges assessed under Section 16.30.520, will be waived by the Hearings Officer if the tow is found to be invalid or for any other reason not justified, after a hearing has been held pursuant to Section 16.30.400. 

B.  A person’s inability to pay the towing and storage charges, in and of itself, is not a sufficient basis for the waiving of such charges. 

C.  If the charges are owed to a private company, the City will pay them if, after a hearing, the tow is found to be invalid or for any other reason not justified and the charges have not previously been paid.
