GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids police have waived some fees for residents whose vehicles were towed from a no-parking zone that was set up for Rich DeVos’ funeral.

Amy Snow-Buckner, Grand Rapids’ acting managing director of communications, said about 20 cars near LaGrave Avenue Christian Reformed Church were towed Thursday.

According to Snow-Buckner, the city’s Mobile GR-Parking Services placed no-parking signs in the area about 10 feet apart, more than 24 hours in advance of the funeral. The signs stated any cars parked in the area after 4 a.m. Thursday would be towed.

The Secret Service requested the no-parking zone because President George W. Bush, three governors and other dignitaries attended the funeral, Snow-Buckner said.

Grand Rapids police waived the daily vehicle storage fee, which is $30, for residents who picked up their vehicles within 24 hours.
