STOCKTON (CBS13) – Stockton’s mayor is speaking out about his car being towed from his parking spot at city hall.
Anthony Silva was able to pick up his car from a Stockton tow yard Monday morning. His car was the only left at a city hall parking lot during a fellow council member’s wedding was held on the front steps Saturday.
The wedding planner towed the car because no parking signs were placed above it for the special event.
The mayor says he was out of town when the incident happened.
“I was gone Wednesday and when I came back on Friday, I went straight to Legoland. So I wouldn’t have known about the sign, and nobody at city hall called me to say ‘by the way, major, we just posted some signs. There’s an event on Saturday; you got to move your car,’ ” said Silva.
Silva’s car was released to him for free. It’s likely the city will foot the $180 towing bill.
