Attorney general’s office to handle towing-related complaints
Citizens with concerns or complaints about towing companies in Virginia should now contact the Virginia Attorney General's Office, since the Virginia Board of Towing Recovery Operators has disbanded. The transfer occurred through a government reorganization plan proposed by Gov. Bob McDonnell's Government Reform Initiative and authorized by the General Assembly last year.
Consumers who wish to obtain information about how to file a complaint with the attorney general's office against a tow truck operator can call Virginia's toll-free consumer hotline number (800) 552-9963, or (804) 786-2042 within the Richmond metro area. A complaint form and other consumer information can also be found on the attorney general's website at http://ag.virginia.gov and clicking on "Consumer Protection" in the left-hand menu.
The licensing of tow truck drivers has transferred to the Department of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).
Canoeing and kayaking enthusiasts soon will have a new access point to the Chickahominy River. VDOT, the James River Association and Henrico County Parks and Recreation are teaming up to establish a new site in Eastern Henrico.
The James River Association negotiated the deal with VDOT to procure official access to the area located just east of I-295 on North Airport Road in Sandston. The site includes a park-and-ride commuter lot bordering the Chickahominy River and has been an unofficial launch site used by paddlers for years. > Read more.
