B. 
Unlawful Parking. It shall be unlawful for anyone to park any prohibited vehicle, as herein defined, on the street, or on private property, in a residential district, subject, however, to the exceptions set forth in Subsection (C) of this Section.
C. 
Exceptions. The following are hereby declared to be exceptions to the foregoing restrictions:
1. 
Operation on street of destination. The operation of trucks or other prohibited vehicles as herein defined upon any street where necessary to the conduct of business at a destination point, provided, streets upon which such traffic is permitted are used until reaching the intersection nearest their destination point.

5. 
Vehicles parked by permit. Any prohibited vehicle may be parked in a residential district on private property if the person wishing to so park such vehicle receives a written permit from the City Traffic Engineer (Director of Safety). The permit applicant shall furnish to the Traffic Engineer the names and addresses of all property owners and tenants within three hundred (300) feet of the proposed parking location. The Traffic Engineer shall notify these property owners and tenants by mail of their right to file a protest against the parking permit. Such applicant shall also provide such other information that the Traffic Engineer may deem necessary to make a determination on the application. The application fee for a parking permit is five dollars ($5.00), which shall be non-refundable. Before any such permit shall be issued, the Traffic Engineer shall determine that the person seeking the permit has met all of the following conditions:
a. 
The parking of the prohibited vehicle will not be detrimental to the public welfare or injurious to other property or improvements in the neighborhood in which the proposed parking place is located;
b. 
None of the property owners or tenants within three hundred (300) feet of the proposed parking location have filed a protest to such parking permit;
c. 
The person seeking the permit will suffer hardship if not allowed to park such vehicle at the proposed location; and
d. 
The permit, if granted, will not be injurious to the integrity of the neighborhood.
The Traffic Engineer may impose such conditions and restrictions upon the permit to reduce or minimize the injurious effect of the proposed parking upon other property in the neighborhood.
Any permit issued under the provisions of this Subsection shall be valid only for a period of one (1) year. Permits will automatically terminate at the end of the one (1) year period unless the Traffic Engineer determines that no substantial violations of the conditions of the permit have occurred and recommends renewal of the permit for one (1) year upon payment of the payment fee.
No permit granted under the provisions of this Subsection shall be transferrable.
Any person denied a permit by the City Traffic Engineer shall be entitled to appeal such decision to the Board of Aldermen; provided however, that, any person appealing such decision shall give written notice of his/her intent to appeal within fourteen (14) days after being notified by the Traffic Engineer's decision. Such notice shall be accompanied by a non-refundable fee of five dollars ($5.00). The Board of Aldermen shall notify all property owners and tenants by mail within three hundred (300) feet of the property owned or leased by the permit applicant upon or adjacent to which permission to park is sought that a public hearing will be held. Such public hearing shall be held within fourteen (14) days after notice of the appeal has been filed. The Traffic Engineer shall transmit to the Board all the papers constituting the record of the decision appealed. Upon the hearing, any party may appear in person or by agent and the Board shall hear all evidence presented by the appellant and property owners and tenants within three hundred (300) feet of the applicant's property.

The proposed permit will not endanger the public safety; and
