The City Manager, with the approval of the City Council, shall post on each end of any bridge in this City that is under the City's control a sign stating the maximum total gross weight with load that may be permitted by any vehicle or combination of vehicles on such bridge.

The Police Chief shall be responsible to the City Manager for the enforcement of the maximum load restrictions. Suspected violators may be taken to a local licensed weight scale to determine the gross weight.
