The City Council’s Public Safety Committee meets today and has only one item on the agenda: an ordinance from Ald. Matt O’Shea (19) requiring owners of recently burned vehicles to report the damage to the city’s Fire Commissioner.
Ald. O’Shea introduced the measure in February. It would require that the owner of record for the burned vehicle submit a “signed statement” detailing what happened to the car in addition to any other information the commissioner deems necessary to determine the accuracy of the statement. Violators would be fined between $200 – $1,000 for each offense. The ordinance would take effect 90 days after publication.
