🌱 Burlington resumes parking fees Towing + Visitor center for young people

Hello, neighbors! It’s me again, Danielle Fallon, your host for the Burlington Daily.


First of all, the weather forecast for the day:

AM showers; cloudy, windy. High: 55 Low: 43.


Here are the three most popular stories today in Burlington:

  1. City of Burlington to resume towing and impounding cars owned by people with overdue parking charges effective February 1, after a period in which car towing was temporarily suspended in response to COVID-19. Anyone who owes the city $ 275 or more in overdue parking fees may be towed; this threshold was recently raised from the previous threshold of $ 75. If a car is towed, the city can impound it until all charges are fully paid. (Free Burlington Press)
  2. Young adults who have nowhere else to go can come to the Spectrum Youth & Family Services Visitor Center at 177 Pearl Street in Burlington. The reception center serves young people aged 14 to 24 who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Visitors can shower, do laundry, charge their phones, or just hang out with staff and other young people. (Seven days)
  3. In an effort to recruit more officers, the Burlington Police Department offers $ 15,000 sign-up bonus. The bonus was implemented with the support of Burlington City Council, which set aside ARPA money to fund it. There are currently 64 officers serving the city, a number that Burlington Police Chief Jon Murad says is not enough. (INFO10 ABC)
