In response to a request for proposals, the Goshen village board awarded a three-year towing contract to Adamis Towing of Goshen.
Four companies responded to the request, and all met the criteria for the contract. Mayor Kyle Roddey said the board decided to chose Adamis because its storage impound yard and operations are right in the village.
The towing resolution states: “Having a storage impound yard in the Village of Goshen represents a significant benefit as it reduces the distance that must be traveled to respond to a call for service; reduces the distance that must be travelled to place a vehicle in the storage impoundment yard, and represents a significant benefit to motor vehicle owners who have had their vehicles towed as they will be able to retrieve their vehicles from a location within the Village as opposed to being compelled to travel outside of the Village to retrieve their motor vehicle."
The 36-month contract is only for towing ordered by the village to remove abandoned, disabled, wrecked, damaged, and junk motor vehicles from village roads and property. Other locations may be included under the direction of the Village of Goshen Police Department.
Vehicle removal includes passenger cars, light trucks, as well as full-size trucks, dump trucks, and semi-tractor trailers.
Work includes debris cleanup from the road and tow site to allow continued use of the area.

Towers and the Modern-Day Cowboy
BY GEORGE L NITTI
The cowboy of yesteryear in some sense has evolved into a new breed of man or woman, one who no longer rides a horse on the range, like John Wayne, but who is more like a rough-riding tower - swinging a tow chain like a lasso and herding broken-down vehicles to safety.
L.K. Adamis, who started Adamis Towing and Recovery in 2009 in Goshen, N.Y., is one such modern-day cowboy, his fleet of trucks reflecting the spirited values of cowboy culture.
On the side of Freightliner 16-ton Vulcan V30, you can't miss the large red bull with longhorns. It's got a tow chain in its mouth and has busted through a fence. The symbolism is clear. When you are dealing with a tow job, Adamis and team are real tough - tough as Texans, tough as bulls, tough enough to get the job done.
On the outside of each truck, there is a motto exemplifying their toughness. One motto is "No boundaries."
"When the bull's busted through the fence, he's no longer held back," Adamis said.
Another motto, "Appetite for Risk," means they are willing to take on jobs that others have declined.
The name "Adamis" spans across the doors of the truck, in large lettering and beautiful classic Western font. Like entering a ranch such as the Ponderosa, its name is clear, built upon reputation and pride of ownership.
Also on the side of the truck is a sexy but strong-looking "cowgirl." Today's tow woman has established herself with the ability to work at the identical tasks as the towman.
Approaching life with a sense of adventure, cowboys and towers are men and women who don't back down from tough jobs, don't give up when they are out on a mission, and do the best they can in whatever circumstances they find themselves.
