Turns out the company that's been towing cars at Abbey Court Condominiums may not have a license to operate in Carrboro.
According to Town Manager Steve Stewart, Chandler Towing needs a privilege license to conduct business in the town. The license costs $25 and a note will be sent to the company telling it to get one.
Stewart was responding to a request for information from Mayor Mark Chilton. Town leaders have been trying to intervene at the Jones Ferry Road complex, which began towing cars last week that had conspicuous body damage or whose owners could not provide proof of ownership and other documents. The complex has also banned commercial vehicles from the parking lot.
Chilton also wants to know how many vehicles have been towed. A spokesman for the company that runs the complex told us 12 a couple of days ago. WCHL reported 14 this morning. Residents have said more.
