The Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of Port Washington North does hereby find that an emergency exists at any time snow is permitted to accumulate on the streets of the Village of Port Washington North and that certain acts and omissions of the inhabitants of the Village impede the removal of snow. It is further found that such acts and omissions, by impeding the removal of snow from the streets of the Village, also impede the provision of fire, police and ambulance service to the residents of the Village and impede the provision of other necessary services to Village residents. For the above reasons, the Board of Trustees of the Incorporated Village of Port Washington North enacts the following provisions.
A. 
It shall be unlawful for any motor vehicle (as that term is defined in the Vehicle and Traffic Law of the State of New York) to be parked or otherwise left unattended on any public highway and/or street upon declaration of a snow emergency by the Mayor. A snow emergency shall be deemed to exist whenever three inches of snow or more is predicted to fall by the Nassau County Office of Emergency Management within a twenty-four-hour period.
B. 
No motor vehicle shall be returned to the public highway and/or street until the public highway and/or street has been plowed by the local municipality and the emergency has been lifted by the Village of Port Washington North.
C. 
Notwithstanding the provisions of Subsection A, the snow emergency regulations shall not be applicable to the following streets: Mill Pond Road, east side of Waterview Drive, and Soundview Drive only between the cross streets of Dock Lane and Waterview Drive.
[Added 9-2-2015 by L.L. No. 4-2015]
Any person convicted of a violation of any provision of this chapter shall be deemed to have committed an offense against this chapter and shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed $250 for each violation. Each day a violation occurs shall be considered a separate and distinct offense against this chapter.
