In order to pay the administrative tow fee, you will need to show a valid driver's license, proof of ownership or an original, notarized release from the owner giving you permission to pick up the vehicle, and proof of valid insurance on the vehicle to the Carbondale Police Department. Once those items are provided, you will be provided a release to take to the tow yard.
The tow companies charge a separate towing and storage fee. That fee is determined by the tow companies and is not affiliated with the Carbondale Police Department. The tow fee is typically approximately $75 and there is an additional storage charge for each day the vehicle is in the tow yard. For more information on the administrative tow fee, please contact Records Supervisor Marcia Toliver at 618-457-3200, ext. 414.
