      It shall be unlawful for any person to park or leave unattended, upon any public street, right-of-
way or alleyway within the corporate limits of the city, any vehicle that does not have a valid

§ 71.17 CITATION FOR STORING VEHICLE IN STREET.

of this subchapter with a misdemeanor titled, “Storing Vehicle on Street,” by attaching a copy of a
citation, setting out the charge, in a conspicuous place upon said vehicle. The issuance of said citation
shall constitute prima facie evidence that the last registered owner of said vehicle, if such vehicle has
been registered, is the person in violation of this subchapter, except that if the officer has knowledge
of the person responsible for leaving said vehicle upon the street, or right-of-way, the officer shall
include the name of that person on the citation, and that person shall be charged with the offense
instead of the last registered owner. The attaching of the citation to the vehicle shall constitute proof

(Ord. 90-03-15-42, passed 3-15-90)


§ 71.18 AUTHORITY TO REMOVE OR IMPOUND VEHICLES; NOTIFICATION; LIABILITY.

impounded if not removed within 48 hours. Such notification shall be made by affixing to the vehicle,
in a conspicuous place a tag warning that such vehicle may be impounded if not removed within 48
hours from the time of affixing the tag. The affixing of the tag shall constitute proof that the owner or
operator of said vehicle has been duly notified. The city assumes no liability for damage to or
disposal of vehicles, removed in violation of this subchapter.
(Ord. 90-03-15-42, passed 3-15-90)

charges as are appropriate under city ordinances or state laws prescribing towing and storage fees.
The towing service may dispose of vehicles removed under the provisions of this subchapter after
having complied with procedures for disposing of impounded vehicles as prescribed by state law.
Any moneys collected for the disposal of said vehicles shall be awarded to the towing service for cost

STANDING, OR PARKING OF AN UNATTENDED MOTOR VEHICLE.

      In a prosecution for an offense under this title, involving the stopping, standing, or parking of

registered owner of the vehicle may rebut this presumption by showing that he or she did not stop,
stand or park the vehicle.
