the use of such parking locations in a manner which encourages use by Township residents.

duplicate permit for another motor vehicle which is registered in the same name. Only one duplicate permit is allowed. Said duplicate
permit shall be distinguishable from the original permits issued by the Clerk. The Clerk is authorized to issue replacement permits where
