"City" piece on Nappi Towing Company, which won a Cumberland County Superior Cou
"City" piece on Nappi Towing Company, which won a Cumberland County Superior Court appeal on June 21 against the city of Portland, which had threatened its removal from the Portland Police Department towing list. City Clerk Linda Cohen had ordered Nappi's operating license suspended for 30 days on July 20, 2001, following a hearing where it was determined owner Sandra Rizzo had failed to reveal her company's connection with police sergeant Sullivan Rizzo, her husband and a driver for Nappi's wholly owned subsidiary, Metro Towing. Sgt. Rizzo also headed the Portland Police Department's traffic division, which gave him authority to approve wrecker companies for city use. The court found that the decision by Cohen was beyond her authority, which is vested in the chief of police.
