(A) The City Manager, in consultation with the Chief of Police, the Fire Chief, and/or the County EMS Director, is authorized to make a determination of when on-street parking congestion is such that the ability of emergency responder vehicles to rapidly traverse a city street is or may be hindered in an emergency response situation. When, based upon the information conveyed to the City Manager following such consultation, the City Manager determines that on- street parking creates or may create such a hindrance on a city street, the City Manager shall be, and is hereby, authorized to take such reasonable measures as may be required to remedy the public safety hazard including:
(1) The creation of such no parking zones as may be reasonably necessary; and
(2) Directing that such no parking zones be made apparent to the public through appropriate signage and/or painting of the curbs in the no parking zone.
(B) When any no parking zone is created pursuant to the authority hereby granted, the fines and penalties applicable to a parking violation in the zone shall be those as are in existence in the city’s traffic regulations and ordinances, as same may be from time to time amended.
