TUSTIN : Abandoned Vehicle Fee Gets Council OK

October 15, 1991|SHANNON SANDS

The City Council has voted 3 to 2 to join other Orange County cities in supporting a $1 vehicle registration fee to be used for disposing of abandoned vehicles.

Councilman Earl J. Prescott opposed the fee because he routinely opposes new taxes. Councilman Jim Potts, an Irvine police supervisor, opposed it because he said that tow companies and vehicle owners are already paying for disposing of the vehicles.

According to Tustin Police Chief W. Douglas Franks, the fees would raise about almost $40,000 a year for the city.
