[Adopted 8-11-2016 by Ord. No. 11-2016]
It shall be unlawful for any person who is not a resident or guest of a resident of the street to park a motor vehicle on the following streets near and around the high school, (more specifically designated below) without the designation of a residential permit on their vehicle. Permits shall be available from the City at City Hall. Permits shall permit a resident or a guest of a resident to park in the restricted area; however, only on the street directly in front of the residence of the resident to which the permit is issued.
The above stated requirement for a residential permit shall only apply from 6:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. when the high school is in session.
A "resident" is defined as an individual who resides in a house on the streets in or around the high school designated as follows and the car that is parked in the street is in fact registered to said household. Each residential household will be entitled to receive two parking passes, with requests for additional passes to be provided upon evidence of a reasonable need for the same by the resident. A "guest" of a resident is an individual that is visiting a resident within the restricted zone outlined below who has been provided a guest permit by the resident. Permits shall be obtained at the office of the Municipal Clerk by the resident. A guest permit shall only entitle the guest to park along the perimeter of the lot to which the permit has been issued. Nothing contained in this article shall prevent residents from parking registered vehicles in their driveways or from permitting guests to park registered vehicles in their driveways without permits.
Any person violating any provision of this section, shall, upon conviction in Municipal Court of the City of Egg Harbor City, be fined an amount not exceeding $200.
The designated streets ("restricted zone"), are as follows and shall be marked by the appropriate signage:
The City shall be permitted through the adoption of any subsequent resolution to set a fee for the issuance of permits after the initial permits are issued.
To the extent the streets covered by this ordinance are covered by other ordinances establishing restrictions, those ordinances are hereby amended to exclude these streets from those restrictions.
If any part of this article is held to be invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, it is the intent that the balance and remainder of this ordinance shall remain in full force and effect.
This article shall become effective immediately upon passage and publication in accordance with law and upon placement of appropriate signage.
