No. 1483] The Borough Manager or his or her designee shall provide for the issuance of residential parking permits if it is determined by a parking study that any street or portion thereof of a particular zoning district, as defined and limited in Chapter 210, Zoning, is being used for parking by the operators of vehicles while the operators of those vehicles are using districts either within or beyond the boundaries of the Borough of Dormont for uses other than residential uses. The uses, other than residential, include but are not limited to commercial, industrial, recreational and institutional uses. This parking study shall be ordered by the Manager, on

Dormont Borough Code) located within the Borough of Dormont and between any two crossing or tee intersections of such street, regardless of whether such intersections are located within or without the Borough. The parking study shall be conducted by the Borough of Dormont Police Department. If the study indicates that the average number of parking spaces utilized consistently during two observations, conducted within a one-week period, exceeds 50% of the total number of available spaces on such numerical street block, or portion thereof, the Borough Manager shall prohibit parking during the hours when such use has been found to occur on that numerical street block, or portion thereof, by the study. In such cases, the Borough Manager, upon the direction and approval of the Borough Council, shall cause appropriate signs establishing parking prohibitions except parking by permit holders who reside within that parking zone, the boundaries of which shall be established by the Borough Manager. Once permit parking has been adopted by the Borough pursuant to 'this section, it shall require a petition of at least 75% of the owners or tenants of residential dwelling units (one signature per dwelling unit) located on such numerical street block or portion thereof to remove the permit parking requirement. Once established, a period of two years must elapse before a petition can be presented to remove the permit parking requirement. Permits shall be granted upon payment of a fee and only under the following conditions: [Amended 11-7-1988 by Ord. No. 1372; 5-3-1999 by Ord. No. 1483; 11-3-2003 by Ord. No. 1526] (1) To persons who are residents of any particular street or portion thereof on which parking is so restricted, to be limited to the zone within which that particular street or portion thereof is located, for every vehicle owned by those persons and registered in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. No permit issued hereunder shall be valid for more than two years but may be renewed upon expiration, provided that the conditions for issuance exist. (2) To residents on behalf of persons who are visitors of any residents of any particular street or portion thereof on which parking is so restricted, to be limited to the zone within which that particular street or portion thereof is located, to be valid for a period of two years, but may be renewed upon expiration. (a) Visitor permits shall not be transferable. Residents who allow the visitor permit issued to their dwelling unit to be used by a person not a visitor to their dwelling unit shall, in addition to the penalties set forth in § 195-58 hereof, have said permit revoked for a period of one year beginning on the date of revocation. In addition, it shall be unlawful for a person to use a visitor permit who is not a visitor at the dwelling unit to which that permit is registered. It shall not be a defense that the permit was being used with the permission of the registered owner. Such person shall, upon conviction, be subject to a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $300.

DORMONT CODE

§ 195-64

§ 195-62. Notice to owner; redemption or sale by borough. Whenever the Police Department or any representative thereof has impounded a vehicle pursuant to § 195-61 hereof, notice of the removal and storage place of such vehicle shall be mailed to the last registered owner, if the name and address of such owner can be ascertained with reasonable diligence. Such notice shall state that if the owner fails to reclaim the vehicle within fifteen (15) days from the date of the mailing, a lien shall be placed on such vehicle and the vehicle shall be sold at public auction to be held not sooner than thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of the certified mailing. § 195-63. Responsibility of owner. The registered owner of a vehicle having five (5) or more outstanding summonses against it shall be responsible for any violations of this Part 3 or any other violation under existing borough ordinances and state statutes relating to parking, stopping or standing in violation of said ordinance, and shall be responsible for the impoundment, except where proof is presented that such vehicle had been stolen and had not been returned to the registered owner by the dates of the violations. § 195-64. Release of vehicle; hearings. A. Vehicles immobilized or impounded pursuant to this Part 3 shall be released to their lawful owner or person entitled to possession upon a showing of adequate evidence of a right to its possession and upon paying all accrued fines and costs for each outstanding unpaid summons or depositing of the collateral required for his or her appearance in the District Justice Court to answer to each violation for which there is an outstanding or otherwise unsettled traffic violation notice or warrant and, in addition thereto, the charges for immobilization, towing and storage. B. In the event that the owner of the vehicle believes that the immobilization was not authorized by law pursuant to this Part 3, he or she may demand a hearing on the immobilization before the District Justice having jurisdiction. Such demand shall be made in writing upon a form supplied by the borough. Such hearing shall be held as scheduled by the District Justice. The sole issue to be determined at such hearing on the immobilization shall be whether five (5) or more parking violation citations have been issued against the vehicle within an eighteen-month period and remain unpaid. As to whether or not the citations remain outstanding and unpaid, the records as provided by the Police Department of the Borough of Dormont shall be a conclusive presumption of the status of the citations.

(2) If the District Justice determines that five (5) or more unpaid parking violation citations within an eighteen-month period are not outstanding and thus the towing or wheel locking was unauthorized by law, the owner shall be entitled to immediate
