This article shall be known as the "Emergency Parking Control Ordinance of the Town of Henrietta."
A. 
Whenever the Supervisor is advised by the Town Superintendent of Highways, or by any fire chief of any fire department in the Henrietta Fire District, that an emergency exists because of snowstorms, floods, fires or other public emergency and that snowplowing, fire fighting, flood relief or other relief measures will be prevented by vehicles parked, standing or abandoned on Town or county highways within the Town of Henrietta, the Supervisor may declare that a parking emergency exists either in the entire Town or upon a designated Town or county highway or highways, or portion thereof.
B. 
Such emergency shall be announced, and notice thereof given, by publication once in any newspaper having circulation in the Town or by any Henrietta fire department or in such other manner as may be expedient. Thereafter, during the period of such emergency and until public announcement in the same manner that the period of emergency is ended, no vehicle shall be parked or left on any Town or county highway in the Town if the emergency has been declared to exist in the entire Town, and if the emergency applies only to a designated highway or highways or portion thereof, no vehicle shall be parked or left on such highway or highways or portion thereof during such emergency.
[Amended 6-20-2001 by L.L. No. 3-2001]
C. 
When the emergency is ended, the Supervisor shall announce the ending in the same manner as the original declaration thereof. Any parking in violation of this article shall be a traffic infraction.
D. 
Such emergency may also be declared by the Town Board of Henrietta at any regular or special meeting and, when so declared by the Town Board, shall be announced by the Town Clerk or Supervisor in the manner herein provided. The Town Board may act either upon the advice of the Superintendent of Highways or fire chief or upon its own knowledge of the conditions creating the emergency.
[Amended 2-18-2015 by L.L. No. 1-2015]
Any vehicle found standing, parked or left on a highway in violation of this article shall be removed and stored by the Town in accordance with Article IV, Removal and Storage of Abandoned or Illegally Parked Vehicles, of Chapter 273, Vehicles and Traffic, of the Code of the Town of Henrietta.
[Added 1-4-1960; amended 2-18-2015 by L.L. No. 1-2015]
Whether or not an emergency exists or has been proclaimed, whenever any vehicle is found unattended or parked on any highway within the Town of Henrietta in such a position as to obstruct traffic or to interfere with snow removal operations being carried out by the Town, such vehicle shall be subject to removal as set forth in Article IV, Removal and Storage of Abandoned or Illegally Parked Vehicles, of Chapter 273, Vehicles and Traffic, of the Code of the Town of Henrietta.
[Adopted 11-7-1984]
The Town Board of the Town of Henrietta finds that the leaving of vehicles on Town highways during periods of snowfall has hindered and obstructed the Superintendent of Highways in snow removal operations. The Town Board additionally finds that the leaving of vehicles on highways within the Town during snowstorms causes hazards to persons using such highways. The purpose of this article is to protect the health, safety and well-being of persons and property by imposing restrictions on the leaving of vehicles on highways during snowstorms.
