CALIPATRIA — The City Council here did not take action Thursday night on a resolution that would lift a restriction on Case Towing from entering into a contract with the city to provide towing services.
Council members Royal Sage, Lee Vasquez and Thelma Baker voted to table the resolution until the next council meeting, when Mayor Fred Beltran and Councilman Robert Nakadaira are expected to be present.
Nakadaira arrived at Thursday's council meeting after Sage, Vasquez and Baker had tabled the resolution. Beltran didn't attend the meeting.
Until 1998, Case Towing provided service and maintenance for police patrol units in Calipatria and towing services for vehicles the Police Department impounded or stored.
The agreement ended in dispute that year and the City Council set a restriction that kept the city from entering into a contract with Case Towing.
