KANSAS CITY, Missouri — If your car gets towed by the city after July 1, 2014, expect to pay more to get it back.

To accommodate increasing operating costs, the Kansas City, Mo., Tow Lot will increase regular, medium and heavy duty tow rates by $40 beginning Tuesday, July 1. The increased fees will allow the Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department to continue to administer a fiscally sound operation.

The new fees will be $240 for regular tows, $340 for medium tows and $415 for heavy tows. According to AutoReturn, a national municipal tow management company, Kansas City’s increased rates are still competitive with other Midwest tow fees. The Tow Lot is located at 7750 E. Front St., just east of I-435 in the Northeast Industrial District. All vehicles towed by the city are stored here.
