§ 74.062  CITY AUTHORITY FOR PARKING METERS, PARKING LOTS AND PARKING GARAGES.
   (A)   Parking meters are hereby authorized to be installed and implemented within any parking meter zone where such meters are deemed to be a practical means of regulating and controlling vehicular traffic. The city may designate parking meter zones within the city and the city shall adopt regulations concerning designated parking meter zones. A list of all parking meter 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 parking meter zones may be included as part of the city’s parking manual and guidelines.
   (B)   The city may designate time and fees for parking lots and parking garages within the city which are owned and/or maintained by the city or its designee. The city shall adopt regulations concerning parking lots and parking garages. A list of all parking lots and parking garages which are city-owned or city- maintained 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 any such parking lots and parking garages may be included as part of the city’s parking manual and guidelines.
   (C)   Nothing in this subchapter shall be interpreted to mean that parking meters are required to be installed at every available location within any authorized parking meter zone and, any parking meter, whether currently existing or later installed, may, at the discretion of the Director of Public Works, or his or her designee, be removed if it is determined that the meter or meters are not necessary or practical to regulate and control vehicular traffic at the existing location.
   (D)   The Director of Public Works, or his or her designee, is hereby authorized and directed to install, repair and maintain all authorized parking meters and to install wherever appropriate to carry the provisions of this subchapter into effect, instructions for use of meter, signs and/or pavement markings to indicate the correct parking space adjacent to each parking meter.
   (E)   All authorized parking meters shall be placed adjacent to individual parking spaces and shall be placed so as to display a signal that shall indicate by a mechanical operation the unexpired time which has been paid for and whether the time paid for has expired. In the alternative, where parking meters have been installed in a parking lot or parking garage or in an area where parking meters in the form of pay stations are utilized to regulate on-street parking, any such parking meters shall be placed in an area that is conveniently accessed by individuals who are parking vehicles within any such parking lot, parking garage, or on-street parking.
