It wasn’t on the agenda but in the middle of a contentious city council meeting in October, outside the mayor’s car was towed away by a repo man.
Police records obtained last week through a public information request show that at 6:37 p.m. on Oct. 18, Mayor Thomas Masters’ silver 2014 Subaru was towed from near the meeting at the city’s Marina events center by Strong Recovery, an involuntary repossession on behalf of a lien holder.
“One, it was a personal matter,” Masters said Monday. “Two, it was a misunderstanding. Three, we were able to straighten it out within a few hours.”
