Issuance of Permits.
Permits are issued for non-commercial passenger vehicles or pick-up trucks owned and registered to approved single-family properties. Commercial, recreational, inoperative, or unregistered vehicles are prohibited from acquiring and/or utilizing Residential Parking Permit(s).
Property owners are responsible for all permits assigned to their residency, including those to tenants. Additional resident and/or guest permits will not be issued as a result of tenant failure to return permit(s) to the property owner until the next annual renewal period.
All parking permits issued by the City pursuant to this section shall be valid for the one year period from January 1st through December 31st of each year. Permits for the following year shall be issued in December of each year.
Display of Permits.
Permit shall be permanently affixed to the left rear bumper of the vehicle for which the permit was issued at all times when the vehicle is parked on a street within the permit parking area. Guest parking permits shall be a “hanger” type placard supplied by the City and hung from the rear view mirror at all times when the guest's vehicle is parked on a street within the permit parking area. In the event there is no rear view mirror, the hanger shall be placed within view behind front windshield on the driver’s side of the vehicle.
The City does not have a "forgiveness" clause in its enforcement policy. Should a resident or guest forget to display or improperly display the appropriate resident or guest permit as required, a citation may be issued.
