The County Board will be considering adopting changes to the Trespass Towing ordinance at the February 2021 meeting. See proposed changes: Proposed Towing Ordinance Changes
Trespass Towing Advisory Board (TTAB) Charge and Membership Amended.
On September 19, 2017, the Arlington County Board, by a vote of 5-0, amended the charge and membership of the TTAB.
The County Board was required to make these changes due to the passage of HB 1960 during the the 2017 Session of the Virginia General Assembly. Visit the Virginia Legislative Information site to learn more about the bill and its legislative history.
The TTAB shall review the current ordinance and any provisions recommended for amendments to the ordinance and provide input and recommendation for the County Board’s consideration. The TTAB shall meet at least once per year at the call of the Chair.
