Sec. 25-304. Permit parking in certain designated areas of church and court streets.
(a) In order to protect the residents of certain designated areas of Church and Court streets that do not have off street parking from unreasonable burdens in gaining access to their residence and in order to promote traffic safety and the peace, good order, comfort, convenience and welfare of the inhabitance of the city, the city finds that it is necessary to establish a system of permit parking for residents of business districts.
(b) For purposes of this section the term "resident" shall be deemed to mean a person that resides and maintains a place of abode within a business district and does not have off street parking for their vehicle.
(c) A resident in a business district that does not have off street parking for their vehicle may apply to the billings and collections division for a parking permit to park their vehicle in the public streets adjoining their residence in the business district in which they live without regard to the normal restrictions on the length of parking time. Two (2) permit(s) shall be issued for each residential lot.
(d) The parking permit shall be displayed from the rear view mirror of the vehicle in such a manner that it may be viewed from the front and rear of the vehicle. When there is no rear view mirror the permit shall be displayed on the vehicle dashboard. The permit shall not be displayed from the rear view mirror while the vehicle is in motion. If the permit is not properly displayed the normal restrictions on the length of permitted parking time shall apply.
(e) A fee of fifteen dollars ($15.00) shall be charged for each permit issued or each replacement permit. The fees will be used by the city to defray the cost of the Administration and enforcement of the provisions of this section.
(f) Permits issued under this section are valid only on the vehicle for which they are issued and shall be valid for a period of one (1) year.
(g) The person shall not transfer or allow another person to use or possess any parking permit issued to them or continue to use a permit after its termination or expiration or give false information upon application for the permit. Nor shall any person use a permit to park upon the public streets in any business district except for the public streets adjoining their residence.
(h) Any person violating any of the provisions of this section shall be punished by a fine of not more that two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00). In addition the parking permit of such person shall be terminated by the billings and collections division. (Ord. No. O-96-125, 5-14-96; Ord. No. O-09-123, 10-13-09, eff. 1-1-10)
