RALEIGH, N.C. — A towing proposal in Raleigh is on the back burner for now.
Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker wants to change how towing companies operate in certain areas of downtown. Under his proposal, business owners who want a vehicle towed at after 6 p.m. would be required to request it in writing.
Under the proposal, towing would be illegal in certain areas of downtown. Instead, cars would be booted.
Meeker decided he wants to speak to council members individually before bringing his proposal to the entire board.
