LAG towing is back in the news, AGAIN. Mainly because Councilman Tony George has taken a stand against Leo Glodzik's blatant ignoring of the specifics of the towing contract.
Here's a link to a previous post about some of the things Leo ignores that haven't made the papers.
And a short list of newspaper articles of contract disputes that did make the news.
Dessoye: LAG Towing’s profits not my business
Critical remarks target Wilkes-Barre's towing operator
Wilkes-Barre towing contract not enforced
And there are others that are no longer available on the Times Leader website.
Even with catching Leo in lies about his towing charges, He won't be fired. He contributes to Leightons campaigns. What lies?
Glodzik said he never overcharged anyone from his standard tow rate of $175.
(Thanks to 'Wake Up Wilkes Barre'for the scan)
And there are a large amount of people who have come forward, to tell about $400 to $600 dollar tows, which didn't require 'special equipment'. I've never seen LAG use any.
I don't think anything will be done. Our council (even with Councilman George standing up for us) is a toothless dog. They can do..... NOTHING. This will be put out to pasture with JJ's charging $300/hour (even though ex-judge Ciavarella's attorneys, Flora and Ruzzo were paid $75 per hour by the government) and Leighton's $29 million parking garage that was supposed to cost $12 million.
