16.20.460 Parking Space Reservation.

(Amended by Ordinance Nos. 176394 and 179141, effective March 23, 2005.)

A.  A parking space may be reserved by securing a meter hood over a single-space parking meter or by placing a space reservation marker on the sidewalk near the curb of the parking space according to the permit’s administrative regulations.

B.  A vehicle parked prior to placement of a space reservation device will not be considered parked in violation until it is parked longer than the time limit indicated on the meter.

C.  The issuance and use of parking meter hoods is permissive and will not be construed to vest any privilege or property right to the permittee.  Hoods, padlocks, and keys remain the property of the City.

D.  The permittee will be charged a fee for replacement and administrative costs for parking meter hoods which are lost, damaged or vandalized.

E.  A fee will be charged to the permittee when a meter hood is not returned on the date designated.

F.  The permittee will be charged an additional fee for each hood which is retrieved by City personnel.

G.  The sign(s), meter hoods, or other devices designating a reserved area may only be used to reserve the number of parking spaces or total street frontage as allowed by the permit.
