|Subject:||Authorizing Parking Authorities in Cities of the Second Class A and Third Class to Enforce and Administer Parking Ordinances and Resolutions|
|In the near future, we plan to introduce legislation similar to House Bill 1455 of the 2015-16 legislative session which would amend Title 75 (Vehicles) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes to authorize parking authorities in cities of the second class A and third class to enforce and administer parking ordinances and resolutions.
Currently, the parking authority in Pittsburgh is required to enforce and administer parking ordinances and resolutions adopted by the city, which includes the adjudication of all disputed parking violation notices or citations issued through enforcement. Providing this option to cities of the second class A and third class would alleviate the burden on magisterial court justices, reduce backlogs, and quicken the collection of violation fees.
House Bill 1455 passed the House last session by a vote of 198-1.
Please join us in offering this option to cities of the second class A and third class.
Introduced as SB736
