Title
Amending Section 3.14(4)(k)2. of the Madison General Ordinances to eliminate the Disabled Parking Enforcement Assistance Council.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: The City of Madison currently has a Parking Council for People with Disabilities (PCPWD) to recommend and review handicapped parking policies, and a Disabled Parking Enforcement Assistance Council (DPEAC) to observe and report handicapped parking violations to the Madison Police Department. Wis. Stat. § 346.50(3m)(b)1 requires that the city have a PCPWD; whether to have a DPEAC is optional under Wis. Stat. § 349.145. This amendment preserves the PCPWD, but eliminates the DPEAC. The reasons for this amendment include the inability to recruit and maintain DPEAC members; the relatively low number of handicapped parking violation reports made by DPEAC members; Madison’s ability to vigorously enforce and prosecute handicapped parking violations through the use of 24-hour parking enforcement officers and the non-emergency report line; and the desire to preserve mayoral, MPD, and other city resources in staffing the DPEAC.
