(Amended by Ordinance No. 186746, effective August 6, 2014.) No operator shall assess any penalties at any facility unless it is registered with the Portland Bureau of Transportation.
A. Application. To register a facility with the Bureau an operator must submit:
1. A written request from the registered operator that includes the facility’s number (designated by the operator) and the facility’s address;
2. A drawing of the facility showing adjacent street names, facility entrances and exits, and location of payment devices;
3. A nonrefundable registration fee for each facility in an amount as required by Administrative Rule.
B. As a condition of registering a pay and park or non-pay private parking facility under this Chapter, the operator shall hold the City of Portland and its officers and employees free and harmless, and shall defend and indemnify the City for any claims for damage to property or injury to person that may be occasioned by any work and/or services furnished or carried on under the terms of registration.
C. The Director shall inspect an operator’s facility following receipt of the written request for registration, the facility drawing, and the registration fee. If the Director determines that a facility complies with this Chapter’s requirements, the Director will issue a registration certificate to the operator for the facility. If the Director determines that the facility does not comply with this Chapter’s requirements, the application will be denied and notice will be sent to the operator that lists the requirements the facility failed to meet. If an application is denied, the operator may resubmit the application without payment of additional registration fees at any time within 60 days of the notice date if the deficiencies noted in the original denial have been corrected. Only one such reapplication without payment of registration fees may be made with respect to each facility. If upon such reapplication the registration is again denied, the operator must file a new facility application accompanied by the required registration fee.
D. Facility registrations are valid from the date of issuance until the last day of that same month the following year.
E. Reporting Changes. Operators must notify the Director of any changes to the operator’s office location, contact information, and insurance provider prior to implementation of the change. Operators must also notify the Director of any changes to a facility that affect a parker’s use of the facility including, but not limited to, location of entrances and exits and location of a payment machine. Changed facilities must be reinspected before any penalty notices are issued.
F. Renewal. The Bureau will send invoices for facility registration renewal to all operators at least 1 month prior to the expiration date. Registrations will be renewed upon payment of the nonrefundable fee for each facility as required by the Administrative Rules.
G. Non-assignability. A registration issued or renewed pursuant to the provisions of this Chapter is not assignable or otherwise transferable.
