Along with the editorial writer ["Hookers' heaven?" July 12], I am concerned about this action by the council. In fact, I sent an email before the meeting to my City Council members, Matt Kelly and Frederic Howe, to express my concerns. I listed three in my email:
Item 1: Why is the City Council getting involved in how much money a certain business sector should be making? What's the next business that's going to be asking for a pay raise?
Item 2: Why isn't it listed in the "towing rules" ["City towing fees may soon spike," July 8] that any cars towed within the city must remain within the city?
Several years ago I had parked a van I had for sale at the Greenbrier shopping center's huge parking lot; it was just sitting there not bothering a soul. I come back the next morning and the car was missing--towed obviously, but from a company in Stafford.
Turns out there is a city ordinance that towed vehicles must remain within the city. Did you know that? I only found out that tidbit of information from a neighbor who happens to be a city law enforcement officer; but only after I paid to get my car back. Had I known about the city ordinance and about the towing company's violation with that ordinance I might have reported the car stolen.
