(B) Citations for violation of this section and §§ 70.30, 71.01, 72.02, and Chapter 74, Schedules I, III and IV, may be issued in the following manner: The Police Department of the Village of Kirkland or civilian personnel designated by the Village President shall enforce the parking ordinances. If a violation of any of the parking ordinances is observed, a parking citation shall be written and placed upon the front windshield of the vehicle.
(C) The fact that a vehicle which is parked illegally is registered in the name of a person shall be considered prima facie proof that that person was in control of the vehicle at the time of the violation, and it shall not be a defense that the vehicle was, at the time of the violation, in the control of a family member of the registered owner or that the registered owner had loaned or leased the vehicle to another. This presumption is intended to be used for all parking violations under each and every ordinance of the Village of Kirkland.
