a. 
A handicapped parking space is a special designation to provide a parking space for those individuals with medical needs which preclude their ability to walk any distance to their residence. It must be created by ordinance and carries a minimum fine of $100 for misuse. In a city where parking is limited, the approval of a handicapped parking space which serves to further restrict parking in residential neighborhoods needs to be evaluated by the Mayor and Council.
1. 
All requests for designation of a handicapped parking space shall be in writing and certify that there is no off-street parking at this location.
2. 
Include a copy of the handicapped placard issued by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.
3. 
Include a copy of the applicant's current motor vehicle license and registration.
4. 
If the applicant does not drive or does not own a vehicle, then the license and registration of the member of the household who is responsible for driving the applicant shall be included.
5. 
The information shall be forwarded to the Public Works Director and Chief of Police for review and comment.
6. 
The information will be presented to the Council at the next regularly scheduled meeting.
7. 
The Mayor and Council will consider the written comments from the Police Director and Public Works Director citing the availability of parking in that area on a regular day, the need for a handicapped parking space in that vicinity and other pertinent factors.
b. 
No person shall park a vehicle at any time upon any of the streets or parts of streets described herein except:
1. 
Persons issued handicapped persons identification cards by the Director of Motor Vehicles pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:4-205 and the vehicle bears a wheelchair symbol license plate or a placard issued by the Director of the Motor Vehicle Commission which is properly displayed on such vehicle pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:4-206; and
2. 
Temporary handicapped persons who shall be issued a temporary placard by the Chief of Police of any municipality in the State of New Jersey pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:4-206, and the vehicle displays such temporary placard.
3. 
In accordance with provisions of N.J.S.A 39:4-197(3)c and notwithstanding any other provisions of this chapter, any person parking a motor vehicle in a restricted parking space without a special vehicle identification card shall be liable to a fine of $250 for the first offense, and for subsequent offenses, a fine of at least $250 and up to 90 days community service, on such terms and in such form as the Court shall deem appropriate, or any combination thereof.
c. 
The removal of a handicapped parking space shall be at the discretion of the Mayor in consultation with the Police Director and Public Works Director after notification is received that the space is no longer necessary.
