Booting company seeking fee increase tonight

Members of the Logan Municipal Council will vote tonight on whether or not to approve a rate increase for booting companies. Last month Dennis Shaw, of Cache Auto Booting Company, asked that the rate be increased from $70 to $75.Shaw told the council that a rate increase two years ago was the first the city had approved for eight years. And he said the city regulates everything that booting companies do.On KVNU’s For the People program last month, Shaw explained why he believes he needs the increase.”One of the reasons that we’re asking for this is that two years ago when the city added a whole bunch of new requirements to the city ordinance, one of those was the required use of being able to accept credit cards or debit cards,” Shaw explained. “That requirement alone cost my company, I don’t know about the others, but it cost my company pretty close to $10,000.”Also at tonight’s meeting, the council will vote on a proposed ordinance that would require cats to be licensed and will consider a resolution further limiting payday lending practices within Logan City limits.
