Councilman Tony George said he will address recent accusation of improper bill against the city's contracted Towing Company during Tuesday's city council work session.
Mr. George said LAG Towing shockingly tried to charge Natalie Aleo, an 82-year-old Wilkes-Barre tenant whose stolen car was found in Plymouth Twp. on Dec. 11 and then transported to LAG Towing at 307 Carey Ave., Wilkes-Barre.
Aleo says she did not receive notice from police that her car was found and didn't find out until LAG Towing told her last week that the car was being held at LAG lot.
When she went to pick her car up, she was told she have to pay $245 for the tow and $1,745 in storage space fees. So to let alone paying the towing fees and costs to fix the car, she signed the title over to LAG Towing.
More Aleo said she later received a call from LAG Towing owner Leo Glodzik, who told her he wouldn't have billed her if he did known the car, was reported stolen.
Efforts to reach Mr. Glodzik for comment Monday were unsuccessful.
