CASPER, Wyo. — A proposed City of Casper professional services agreement would contract four companies to conduct vehicle towing efforts for the Casper Police Department and other agencies that work through the Public Safety Communications Center.
The city’s previous agreement expired in June.
The city council discussed the proposed agreement during their Tuesday, Nov. 12 work session.

Casper police Captain Steve Schulz explained that the services are offered to vehicle owners when wrecks occur, but that citizens also have the option to independently select a towing service.
The four companies that would be contracted include:
- All Around Towing, LLC
- E & F Towing, Transport and Recovery
- M.A.D. Transportation & Towing
- On the Hook Recovery and Transport
The companies would provide wrecker services on a rotating, as-needed basis.
All the wrecker services would be required to show that they are covered by liability insurance.
They must also provide a fee schedule they charge for services.
The companies would be obligated to release personal property to owners when authorized to do so by the Casper area agency requesting the tow.
Schulz explained that this would be a part of the contracts to ensure that towing companies don’t withhold important personal property to people who are unable to immediately make their wrecking fee payments.
