(a) The county executive is hereby authorized, pursuant to the procedures prescribed by law, to adopt regulations for the installation, maintenance and operation of parking meters along, and limiting the time motor vehicles may park on, the streets, highways and alleys located within each district and on the parking lots within each district acquired by or leased to the county, by the use of parking meters or otherwise, and to prescribe parking meter or other fees for parking on such parking lots, streets, highways and alleys; except, that on all off-street parking facilities leased to the county revenue authority, such authority shall have the responsibility for the installation, maintenance and operation of parking meters on such facilities and for the adoption of regulations, rates, fees and other charges relating to the facilities operated and managed by it. After the adoption of such regulations, the county may purchase, install, maintain and operate any such parking meters on all streets, highways, alleys and on off-street parking facilities not leased to the revenue authority, in accordance with such regulations; provided, that the location thereof is approved by the county executive. All parking meter fees collected within each district shall be applied as provided in the following section, and the department of police, or any other county employees specifically designated by an executive order of the county executive, or his designee, shall enforce such regulations regarding parking and parking meters in the same manner as they enforce parking and traffic regulations applicable to the public streets and alleys of the county.
(b) For the purposes of enforcement of parking and standing regulations in general within the several parking lot districts only, any county employee designated as provided in the preceding subsection shall have concurrent jurisdiction with the police officers of the county as to the enforcement of all parking and standing regulations.
