Two tow truck operators will return to Utica City Court in three weeks to set a possible trial date for allegations that they illegally towed several vehicles parked at a private business last year.
David Taurisano, 49, and Michael Lynch, 39, pleaded not guilty to the violations Monday afternoon. The two men are due back in court with their attorneys on Monday, Feb. 25, for a pre-trial conference with Judge Ralph Eannace to discuss the future of the case.
Taurisano, owner of Rapid Recovery in Marcy, is facing nine tickets – three each for towing vehicles without a city license, excessively charging people $200 to get their vehicles back and not notifying the police department each time he removed a vehicle from the Labor Ready parking lot across from the Utica Memorial Auditorium on Nov. 16 and 24.
Lynch, a tow operator for Southside Auto who is represented by Norman Deep, faces one of each charge.
Taurisano, who is represented by Dr. Angela Elefante, has previously said that he already does have a license and that the city’s ordinance stating a $95 maximum towing fee does not apply to towing off private property at the request of the property owner.
When Assistant Corporation Counsel Andrew Boughrum asked to see a copy of Taurisano’s license in court Monday, Elefante refused until she first finds out why Taurisano’s license with West End Auto has gone “missing.”
“Things have a way of disappearing,” Elefante said.
