                        Be it ordained by the City Commission of the City of Sherrill, New York

as follows:

Section 1. Findings.

            WHEREAS, use of the City’s local streets and thoroughfares by trucks having a gross vehicle weight (“GVW”) of ten thousand (10,000) pounds, or five (5) tons, has an adverse impact on the integrity of the City’s infrastructure and, additionally, has the potential to adversely affect the health, safety, comfort and repose of the City’s populace and neighborhoods; and

            WHEREAS, the City of Sherrill has conducted a truck analysis which has identified, inter alia:  traffic patterns within the City of Sherrill; appropriate thoroughfares for use by trucks having a GVW of more than five (5) tons; and the number of vehicles that utilize various City streets and rights-of-way, and

            WHEREAS, the City has identified rights-of-way and thoroughfares in and around the City of Sherrill that are appropriate for and can handle the adverse effects associated with and/or caused by vehicles having a GVW of more than five (5) tons; and

            WHEREAS, it is the opinion of The City Commissioners of the City of Sherrill’s best interests are furthered by adopting legislation that specifically identifies rights-of-way and thoroughfares that may be utilized by truck and vehicles having a GVW of more than five (5) tons and expressly restricts said vehicles from use of non-permitted rights-of-way or thoroughfares unless for local deliveries or emergency purposes.

Section 2.  Legislative Purpose.

The Sherrill City Commission adopts the truck regulations and restrictions set forth in this ordinance upon the determination that excluding vehicles and/or combinations of vehicle(s) and trailer(s) from certain streets and rights-of-way in the City of Sherrill is in the City’s best interests for among the following reasons:  said exclusion protects the integrity and useful life of the City’s roadway and traffic infrastructure, thereby reducing costs of maintenance and repair to the City’s taxpayers;  said exclusion protects the health, safety, welfare and repose of the City’s residents; and said exclusion protects and enhances the essential characters of the City’s residential neighborhoods.

Section 3. Truck Route System; Regulations and Restrictions.

 are permitted to travel and operate shall consist of all numbered New York State highway routes through the City of Sherrill.

B.  No person, firm, corporation or other type of entity shall operate or permit to be driven or operated any trucks, tractors, tractor-trailer combinations or other vehicles or combinations of vehicles identified at subsection 3 (A) hereof on any street, or thoroughfares except those numbered New York State highway routes through the City of Sherrill as permit such driving or operation of said vehicles. A violation of this section shall be punishable in accordance with Section 4 hereof.

C.  Such exclusions shall not prevent the necessary delivery or pick-up of merchandise or other property along the streets from which trucks or other vehicles regulated hereunder are otherwise excluded, provided that the vehicle from which any such delivery is made shall enter and leave any such designated truck route by the street which is the nearest to and provides the safest accessibility to the place where such delivery or pick-up is to be made. Further, a delivery vehicle that would otherwise be prohibited from the street upon which a delivery is made shall remain on such prohibited streets for a period of time no longer than is necessary and reasonable to make such delivery or to complete a loading or unloading of such vehicle.

D.  Nothing in this section shall be construed to exclude or prevent the necessary operation of trucks or other vehicles regulated hereunder while in use by the United States Postal Service or military services, or by fire, police, sanitation, or street maintenance services, or by school/transport buses, or by public service corporations while on emergency repair work or as otherwise reasonably necessary to complete their work or duties, or for purposes of obtaining a New York State Department of Motor Vehicle license

E.  Conspicuous and legible signs shall be placed at such locations and contain such information as is necessary to apprise the public and affected persons, corporations and other entities of the restrictions set forth in this Ordinance.
