No person shall operate, move or park a vehicle or combination of vehicles exceeding a size as specified in Section 335.04, or exceeding a gross weight of five tons, upon any street or highway under local jurisdiction, other than State routes, except pursuant to permission granted by the City Manager. Permission need not be obtained for any movement or parking necessitated by an emergency or for the purposes of making deliveries to or pickups from premises not located on State routes, provided such movement is conducted by the shortest route possible or by a route designated by the City Manager.
   No person granted permission by the City Manager shall be required to obtain a special permit from the Ohio Director of Highways for the movement of the vehicle or combination of vehicles on streets or highways under local jurisdiction; however, the approval of the Ohio Director of Highways shall be required for movement upon State routes as provided in Section 335.01.
   The City Manager may grant permission for a single or round trip, or for such period of time, not to exceed one year, as the City Manager in his discretion deems advisable, or for the duration of any construction project. The City Manager may limit or prescribe terms or conditions of operation for such vehicle or combination of vehicles by designating the route, hours, speed or such other restrictions as may be necessary for the preservation of the public peace, property, health and safety. The City Manager may require the posting of bond or other security necessary to compensate for any damage to a roadway or road structure.
   Streets or highways under local jurisdiction shall be posted with signs indicating "no thru trucks - gross weight 5 tons", or words of similar import to apprise drivers of the limitations imposed by this section. No driver shall disobey the instructions indicated on any such sign.
   Violation of any of the limitations, terms or conditions of the permission granted by the City Manager shall be cause for immediate revocation or suspension of such permission and denial of request for any future permission.
