American Towman Magazine Presents the Week in TowingSeptember 28 - October 04, 2016

New Tow Policy in Mich. Co.

The Iosco County (Mich.) Board of Commissioners approved a new towing policy during its regular meeting on Sept. 21. Commissioners delayed making the decision for two weeks after several tow company owners objected to some of the provisions and requested input into the final policy. They got some, but not all, of the changes they requested because the policy cannot be customized, according to Robert Rae, Iosco County Central Dispatch director. Source:

Find Your Place [b]of Peace

Nothing relaxes me more than music. Be it letting my iPod roll through the 20,000 tracks it holds, experiencing a live jazz performance or even playing my congas in church service, music allows me to "take it down" after a busy work day or week.

It's important that we find those places of peace, where the batteries re-charge and the mind unwinds.

Tow Business Editor Don Archer wrote a somewhat humorous column this week for the Tow Business & Operations page you'll want to read. It tells the true-to-life tale of a towman who has a hard time getting away from the business—mentally and emotionally.

I got a kick out of it, and I'm sure you will too.
