ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An update on proposed new city of Albany towing rules.

Wrecker services that don't have equipment to handle big trucks and tough tows will be taken off the list that emergency dispatchers use when sending tow trucks to wreck scenes.

The owners of four small companies said they can't afford that equipment and the insurance for it.

They worry the policy could put them out of business.

"I just think you know the right thing to do to keep four businesses in Albany Georgia would go with the heavy duty rotation and the light duty rotation," said Michael Miles of Miles Towing Company.

"It makes me feel real bad because this is suppose to be the good life city and the good life city should be trying to increase business not decrease business," Gregory Harris of Harris Towing Company.

The companies plan to voice their outrage Tuesday when city commissioners are set to vote on the ordinance.
