1/21/15 - Parking at Robert R Jones Library
Residents picking up or dropping off students at Bicentennial School need to be mindful of the parking restrictions around the Village Hall and the Robert R. Jones Library. Patrons of the Library have complained that parking spaces intended for library use have been taken by parents picking up or dropping off students.
In order to remedy this issue, the Village Board enacted an ordinance Title X, Division II, Chapter 1, Section 2.7 which states:
“Parking is prohibited in those areas around Coal Valley Village Hall and Robert R. Jones Library building (900 1st Street) that have restrictive signage or curbs painted yellow.”
Residents will notice that new reflective signs have been purchased and erected to designate those spaces restricted for library patrons only. The police department will monitor violations of this ordinance. The first violation will result in a warning which is recorded in the records management system. Subsequent violations will result in an ordinance violation citation being issued.
Title I, Division V, Chapter 1, Section 3 states “The minimum penalty fee for an ordinance violation citation is $45.00 with the maximum being $750.00. Each day the violation has not been corrected can be considered a separate violation and assessed a separate penalty fee for each day. A single Notice of Ordinance Violation form can be used for multiple days the violation continues to exist.”
If a fine is not paid within 14 days, the violation is referred to Municipal Code Enforcement at which time the minimum fine becomes $135.00. While this may seem to be drastic for parking violations, the best remedy is to abide by the parking restrictions.
