"The Casino Society:

City won't use 'boot' on4

By AMY MINDELL
The city of Ann Arbor won't "boot"
your car until members of city Coun-
cil settle on a fee for having the wheel
lock removed.
City Council voted 6-5 two weeks
ago to begin using Denver Boots in-
stead of towing cars with six or more
unpaid parking tickets. But coun-
cilmembers tabled a discussion Mon-
day night on the removal fee because
of an extra long agenda.
"THE RESOLUTION is in limbo,"
said Bruce Laidlaw, city attorney.

highest percentage ever recorded.
Asian American enrollment clim-
bed to 4.5 percent, the largest in-
crease reported among the minority
groups.
"I think racism on campus is
something often ignored," said Wong.
"It (the incident) comes at a time
when the University is patting itself
on the back for increasing minority
enrollment."
Wong said he did not believe the at-
tack was directed at him personally.
Although he said he had served as a
University teaching assistant in the
past, he had been out of the country
for over a year and is not currently
teaching.
In another racially motivated in-
cident last year at Mary Markley's
Angela Davis Minority Lounge,
"Somebody came in and threw
watermelon over murals depicting
minority heritage," according to
Darrell Thompson, an LSA Michigan
Student Assembly representative.

"We could boot a car, but can't charge
a fee."
The ordinance change is to be made
official today, but won't be implemen-
ted by the city's transportation depar-
tment until the council takes up the
fee issue again at its Nov. 18 meeting.
Deciding on a charge may not be
easy, though. Councilmember Kathy
Edgren (D-Fifth Ward), who
proposed the boot be used, had the
transportation department study the
cost of buying six additional boots
(the city already has three), and a
mini van with a two-way radio to
carry the boots around, and creation
of a full-time position to install and
remove the boots. The transportation
department recommended a fee of
$20.

BUT COUNCILMEMBER Larry
Hahn (R-Fourth Ward) questioned
whether the city would be liable for
car damage caused by the boot and
suggested the issue be investigated
before the lock is implemented.
"What if there is a boot on your car
and you drive it and damage your
car?" he asked.
Jim Stein, an assistant parking
manager for the transportation
department, said a car's fender would
be damaged if its owner drives for-
ward when a boot is attached. The
suspension would be damaged if the
owner drove backward, he said.
LAIDLAW SAID the liability
problem "is not a serious issue," and
that he will check with attorney in
other cities where the boot is used

cars yet
about probability of lawsuits.
Laidlaw said, however, that the city
would not be held responsible for any
damage as long as a warning notice
was placed on the car.
Edgren said she proposed the Den-
ver Boot instead of towing because
they are preferred by drivers who
hate having to pick up a car at a
garage. The boot, if used with a $20
removal fee, would also be cheaper
than towing at a standard cost of $25-
$30, she added.
