In providing for highway safety and the maintenance of clear and passable roadways, it is sometimes necessary for the Police Department to summon a tow service to remove vehicles. Tow services may also be utilized when it becomes necessary to remove and/or secure a vehicle in connection with any criminal investigation. Emergency towing service requires special knowledge, skills, equipment, and experience and it is in the best public interest that the City of Raymore utilize private towing companies that meet minimum standards for performing emergency towing work at the request of the Police Department or the City on a rotational basis.
In order to become a part of the Tow Rotation, tow companies must abide by the City of Raymore Tow Service Rotation Procedure and submit two documents: an application to be a part of the tow rotation and a tow permit application for each operator who may tow within the City of Raymore. Both the rotation application and operator tow permit application must be renewed annually.
Please Note: This is new procedure for the City of Raymore. The tow rotation will go into effect June 1, 2015.
