Towing service discussed at city council meeting

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene / Staff Writer

After approving the minutes of the December meetings, the London City Council began discussing tow trucks and the dispatch center during a very short meeting Tuesday.

The issue had come up at a previous meeting, and Jack Seeley and Steve Daniels came to Tuesday’s meeting to continue the issue.

Previously, the question of why all the tow truck services weren’t called on evenly had been raised.

Seeley’s Wrecker service has had 25 years in the business, said Jack Seeley, noting that other services had been sent more often than his service has.

Daniels, of My Three Sons Towing, said in the past two months his service has only been called from dispatch twice.

Both of them reported that Kentucky State Police dispatch system has called them out routinely.

The council discussed that perhaps towing services that are based inside the city limits, who pay taxes and other fees to the city, should be called out first, if it is needed inside the limits.

A committee of the council has been working on the problem for the past month, with Danny Phelps as the committee chairman. Phelps said Police Chief Stewart Walker is developing a system for calling out towing services.

Walker was not at the Tuesday meeting.

In one other matter, the council was asked to name a new street that connects KY 192 on its eastern end with a subdivision. The new street was recently built on the other side of the Hal Rogers Parkway that was on property owned by County Clerk Dean Johnson.

The council asked Mayor Troy Rudder to consider some names and come back with one at the next meeting.

The council routinely meets at 5:30 p.m. in the city hall on the first Monday of the month unless it is a holiday.
