(Nov. 28, 2017) The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) is seeking three volunteer members to represent the community at large who are affected by towing services throughout the City. This is a unique opportunity to influence towing operations to better serve Portland residents. Your input and insight into Portland’s towing industry will help ensure that Portland’s evolving market operates safely, fairly, and efficiently.

The Towing and Private Property Impound (PPI) Program promotes public safety and convenience by ensuring that municipal and private property contract towers are providing vehicle towing and storage services in a timely, courteous, safe, and professional manner. Established in City Code Chapter 3.98, the Towing Board of Review oversees and monitors the performance of Tow Contractors and the Tow Desk (tow truck dispatch service).

Members are confirmed by the City Council and serve for a period of two years.

Upcoming issues include renewal of the City’s Towing Contract and the implementation of a new towing dispatch software system.

Apply to become a member of the Towing Board of Review! Completed applications are due by Friday, December 1, 2017. Selected applicants will be invited to meet with the tow program contact prior to the next Board meeting.
