Towed and Impounded Vehicles

An administrative towing Impound Fee of $500 may be assessed for certain violations under the Aurora municipal code section 29-48, or as otherwise specified in the Illinois Complied Statutes.

Impound fees may be paid 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the Aurora Police Department Booking (Jail) located at the west end of 1200 E. Indian Trail Rd. (Nearest the court, opposite the front desk area). Please bring the yellow copy of the form labeled NOTICE OF VEHICLE SEIZURE & IMPOUNDMENT to the booking division, along with $500.00 USC (cash only) to secure the release of an impounded vehicle. All applicable towing and storage fees will be paid separate from the impound fee, directly to the towing company at the time of vehicle release.
