Towing Licensing


In July 2011, the City-County Council approved a new ordinance, Chapter 995 of the Revised Code for the Consolidated City of Indianapolis and Marion County, empowering the License Administrator and the Department of Business and Neighborhood Services to issue a license to qualified towing companies. This ordinance also creates several requirements and regulations designed to end the practice of predatory towing in Indianapolis.
