Memorandum
The City periodically reviews its schedule of parking fines and makes adjustments based on those findings. During this review, City staff determined that Article VII, 10:77 could be simplified by:

1. Removing specific fines for violations 10:67 (Handicap), 10:68 (Odd/Even Parking Districts) and 10:143(1) (Snow Emergencies) and allowing adoption by Resolution as with all other parking fines,
2. Removing a redundant reference to the Michigan Vehicle Code, and
3. Simplifying language.
City staff recommends approval of this Ordinance amendment.
