[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Council of the Town of South Berwick 2-23-2009. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Vehicles and traffic — See Ch. 130.
The Town Clerk is authorized to sell and distribute parking permits to South Berwick residents for the parking of motor vehicles in any municipally owned parking lot so designated by the Town Council, under such conditions and at such rates as determined by the Town Council and at the Town Manager's discretion.
With the exception of those parking spaces designated with appropriate signage, no motor vehicle shall be parked in any municipal permitted parking space, without the benefit of a permit issued by the Town Clerk. The permit shall indicate the lot and space number assigned, the name of the owner of the permit and the expiration date of said permit. The permit must be conspicuously displayed on the driver's side of the dashboard. In addition to any parking violation notice issued as provided in this chapter, vehicles found in violation of this section may be towed from the lot and stored, the expenses of both to be paid by the registered owner of the vehicle.
Permits will be issued on an annual basis, expiring December 31 of each year. Fees will be prorated from the month of purchase to the end of the calendar year. A portion of a month will be charged for the entire month.
Permits will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis. The maximum number of permits issued to any one person/household or business at one time shall be limited to two per month. Priority will be given to those persons renting a local apartment that does not have adequate parking available.
Permits may be issued to ADA-approved residents for any municipal parking lot on a case-by-case basis.
