From now on the Logan Police Department, not the private Clancy Parking Enforcement company, will assume the role as the primary enforcement agency for all parking issues in Logan City.
Police Chief Gary Jensen told the Logan Municipal Council Tuesday that his department wants to revise the civil penalties for parking violations consistent with similar communities within the state of Utah. He said the department is striving to be revenue-neutral instead of seeking a revenue-enhancer program.
Chief Jensen said he does not want to be a “booter.” However, he explained what happens when there are more than six parking violations issued against a vehicle in a 90-day period.
“If in fact we find a person, which quite honestly there isn’t a great deal of this that goes on, we would have the option then to impound the vehicle, not boot,” Jensen told the council. “Just simply hire a tow truck to come out to get the vehicle and in order to receive your vehicle back there would be some financial difficulty. Paying the six citations, the $50 fee as well as the impound fee that goes along with that.”
In the past, a private booting company was called in these situations and it turned out to be a very controversial issue
