[Adopted 9-19-2012 by L.L. No. 2-2012]
The purpose of this article is to protect the health, welfare and safety of the public by providing a mechanism for the temporary suspension of the other provisions of this chapter in the event of public need, such as to facilitate snow removal, pave public streets or parking areas, remove trees, or conduct public events.
The provisions of this article shall be used only when an authorized representative of the Village of Round Lake declares a temporary parking suspension.
A. 
The following individuals shall have the right to declare a temporary parking suspension: the Village Mayor and the Village Highway Superintendant.
B. 
A temporary parking suspension may be declared when a person listed in § 168-21(A) determines that the purpose of this article as set forth in § 168-20 justifies such declaration.
C. 
Parking otherwise permitted under this chapter may be suspended or modified when a temporary parking suspension has been declared and the person making the declaration posts or causes to be posted a notice of such declaration at two locations in the Village Hall (e.g., bulletin board, door, window). Such notices shall describe the reason for the temporary parking suspension (e.g., "To pave Burlington Avenue on Saturday") and describe the manner and extent to which parking otherwise allowed is restricted or prohibited in sufficient detail to put the reader on notice of the same; and at least one of the following:
(1) 
Signs are placed in proximity to the affected parking areas (on-street or off-street) with sufficient information to put the reader of the sign on notice of the parking restriction or prohibition; or
(2) 
A memorandum is placed under the windshield-wiper of a vehicle parked in an area affected by the temporary parking suspension with sufficient information to put the reader of the memorandum on notice of the parking restriction or prohibition; or
(3) 
The owner or operator of the vehicle is given verbal notice by a Village representative in person or by telephone with sufficient information to put the person on notice of the parking restriction or prohibition; or
(4) 
A letter or e-mail is sent to the owner or operator of the vehicle containing sufficient information to put the recipient on notice of the parking restriction or prohibition at such person's last known address as determined by Village tax records.
[Amended 4-16-2019 by L.L. No. 2-2019]
D. 
The notice period provided shall be reasonable under the circumstances, except that at least three days' notice shall be provided when the event for which the temporary parking suspension is declared has been known to the Village at least a week prior to the event, and except that notice by mail requires at least five calendar days. If the emergency is obvious, such as fire, heavy snowfall or other visible causes, which to a reasonably prudent person would indicate the existence of an emergency, no notice shall be required.
[Amended 4-16-2019 by L.L. No. 2-2019]
Violation of this article is punishable as set forth in § 168-6. In addition to the fines provided therein, any vehicle parked in violation of this article may be towed or removed at the owner's expense as set forth in § 168-5.
