Whenever snow has fallen and accumulation is such that in the opinion of the Chief of Police and/or Police Director it is necessary to declare an emergency in order to clear the snow from the particular area, upon declaration of such an emergency, there shall be no parking upon streets or sections of streets where temporary "emergency — no parking" signs are displayed. The Chief of Police and/or Police Director or, in his absence, the ranking police officer, is authorized to declare an emergency and to direct the posting of said "emergency no parking" signs when weather conditions so dictate or require that such action be taken.
[Amended 3-20-2017 by Ord. No. 1541-2017]
