TO ALL TENENTS,
PLEASE READ THE LETTER BELOW AS IT CONTAINS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE NEW TOWING / BOOTING PROGRAM WHICH WILL TAKE EFFECT ON 5/1/2023.
April 19, 2023
RE: Towing and Booting of vehicles to begin 5/1/23
The BHA has entered into a contract with Bobby’s Towing and Recovery LLC for parking lot enforcement at both Forrestal Heights and Hamilton Fish Plaza.
Any vehicle parked in violation of the attached Parking Policy is subject to towing or booting. The fee to release the vehicle is $125.00 and must be paid directly to Bobby’s Towing and Recovery LLC.
Please see the attached Parking Policy. We strongly recommend that you read it and call the office if you have any questions. Once a vehicle is towed or booted it becomes a matter between the vehicle owner and the towing company. The BHA does not and will not have any role in the transaction for the release of the vehicle.
Please be sure to inform your family members and all of your guests of the parking rules. Not knowing the rules will not be considered an excuse. Breaking a rule to run into your apartment for 5 minutes will not be considered an excuse. There are no excuses.
Again, the BHA cannot and will not have any part in getting a vehicle released from the towing company if it was towed or booted for being in violation of the attached parking policy. NO EXCEPTIONS.
STARTING MONDAY MAY 1ST, 2023
Parking Policy Enforcement
Any vehicle found in violation of any of the parking rules and regulations listed below will be subject to towing and/or booting.

Once a vehicle has been towed or booted, it becomes a matter between the owner and the towing company. The Beacon Housing Authority or its Executive Director does not have any role in the transaction for the release of the vehicle.
