REQUEST FOR ACTION ON IMPOUNDING
In 2021 60 scooters were impounded. The City pays $90,000 per quarter to the impounding contractor. Those impounded scooters generated just over $5,000 for the City in fees. Thus the net cost of impounding the 60 scooters in Q4 was $85,000, or ~$1,400 each.
In Q4 3,058 Get-It-Done reports of scooter parking violations were submitted. Each report on average shows 3.6 scooters in violation*. Thus in Q4 there were over 11,000 scooter parking violations reported, and only 60 scooters impounded over that three month period.
