At the regular City of Douglas Commission meeting on Monday, December 14, 2015, the Mayor and Board of Commissioners approved new fees involving wrecker services utilized by the Douglas Police Department.  The new ordinance will set maximum fees associated with towing vehicles for the Police Department.

After several meetings between the Douglas Police Department and wrecker companies that are on the “wrecker rotation list” an agreement was reached on maximum wrecker administrative and wrecker/towing fees.  All wrecker services that apply for rotation status with the Police Department will follow these guidelines for charging the public for services.  Rotation and wrecker annual administrative fees will be $125.00.  Abandoned vehicles, road checks, etc, will have the following fees for the specified times:   7am-7pm $100.00, 7pm – 7am $150.00.  Any wreck calls that come in will have a fee range between $150.00 - $300.00, this fee will be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The basic tow fee will be $150.00 for a vehicle involved in an accident and up to 10,000 lbs. within the City of Douglas, day or night, that only requires pick-up and clean-up of the site.  Vehicles towed due to seizures or investigative services will have a $50.00 fee 24 hrs. per day, 7 days a week.  Wrecker owners can charge a storage fee of up to $15.00 per day.
