Final Approved Ordinance-Inspection & Registration fines (This file has not yet been converted to a viewable format)
To the Honorable Board:
I hereby request your consideration of amending the current City of Somerville City Ordinances, Chapter 1 - General Provisions, Section 1-11 Penalties and Violations, “Traffic and Parking Regulations”, by inserting the following language at the end of the existing table:
· Invalid or expired registration plate $50 Police; Traffic and Parking
· Invalid or expired inspection sticker $50 Police; Traffic and Parking
In an effort to improve our allocation of resources, we request to allow Parking Control Officers (PCO's) to issue two (2) additional violations; 1) expired vehicle registration, and 2) expired vehicle inspection. Previously, this has solely been a function of the Somerville Police Department.
Matt Dias, the Acting Director of Traffic and Parking, is available to answer any questions you may have.
Joseph A. Curtatone
