On August 13, 2010, the Northwest Herald covered Johnsburg's vehicle impoundment law. If you have a Woodstock Public Library, you can read that article without having to cough up the Herald's fee to pull it from archives.
From the article, "Chief Keith VonAllmen said he was the architect behind a new nuisance ordinance that could force some convicted offenders to pay $500 if the village impounds their car during an arrest.
“We’re taking a more firm stance and saying, ‘We don’t want this happening here.’ ” VonAllmen said. “Hopefully, it acts as a deterrent.”
