(A) The city may designate resident-only parking zones within the city and the city shall adopt regulations concerning designated resident-only parking zones. A list of all resident-only zones shall be maintained by the Director of Public Works, or his or her designee, and be made available to the public upon request. Specific information regarding resident-only parking zones may be included as part of the city’s parking manual and guidelines.
(B) Upon creation of a resident-only parking zone, the Director of Public Works, or his or her designee, is authorized to erect or place signs giving notice that a resident-only parking permit area has been established. No person shall park a vehicle in any such space so designated by appropriate signage during the time period specified on such signs, unless the vehicle displays a parking permit authorized by this section.
(C) Eligible residents must fill out the appropriate city application form in order to receive a resident parking permit.
(D) No persons shall represent in any fashion that a vehicle is entitled to a resident parking permit when not so entitled. The display of a resident parking permit on a vehicle not entitled to such a resident parking permit shall constitute such a representation.
(E) No person shall duplicate or attempt to duplicate, by any means, a resident parking permit. The display of such duplicate resident parking permit on a vehicle shall constitute such duplication.

(G) Resident parking permits issued for the areas defined in division (F) above shall be valid only for that residential area.

(J) There shall be a fee in the amount of $25 for a resident parking permit and each unit which falls within a resident-only permit zone may purchase two residential parking permits, unless specified otherwise herein.
(K) One visitor pass will be provided with each residential parking permit. Each visitor pass will be a hang-tag style and must be hung from the rear-view mirror of the vehicle in which it is displayed while such vehicle is parked in a designed resident-only parking zone. There will be a $25 charge for replacement of lost or stolen visitor passes.
(L) The Director of Public Works or his or her designee is hereby authorized and directed to install appropriate signs and/or curb or street markings to properly carry the provisions of this section into effect.
