Councilmember proposes booting the 'boot'


The City Council's Public Safety & Regulatory Services Committee will hold a public hearing Wednesday, Oct. 27 to ban the "boot," the car immobilization device used by private towing companies as an alternative to impounding cars.

City Councilmember Paul Zerby (2nd Ward), who represents Downtown's Mill District and southeast Minneapolis, is proposing the ban.

Zerby's office has received complaints from people who say they have been unfairly booted. Others have made allegations about kickbacks, Zerby said.
