The Marshal's Department contracts towing services with private providers and payment for the tow / impound is made directly by the registered owner of the vehicle to the tow company. Impound fees will have to be paid before a vehicle will be released. Daily storage fees begin to accumulate after the first 24 hours that a vehicle has been in police custody, so it is recommended that the recovery of a towed vehicle not be delayed.
A parking ticket will accompany the impound paperwork and a court date is provided should an appeal of the circumstances be desired. Failure to pay the parking ticket prior to the court date, or failure to appear at the court date, will result in a doubling of the parking fine.
