chief's designee determine that the vehicle shall be impounded or immobilized,
as the case may be, said police chief or
designee shall notify the owner, either
orally at the conclusion of the hearing or
by letter; however, no such notice need
be given should the owner or a designated representative of the owner fail to
appear at such hearing.
f. After the vehicle has been impounded

locked or unlocked vehicle in order to impound or immobilize such vehicle, such
entrance must be made in the presence

person to whom the persons with disabilities parking permit is issued. Proof
of conviction of two or more violations

involving improper use of a persons with
