The area bounded by and including both sides of: Irving Park Road on the north, the eastern (northbound) lane of Ravenswood Avenue on the west, Roscoe Street on the south, and bounded by but not including Ashland Avenue on the east; <locations>
shall for purposes of this section be known as the "LV2 night game tow area." Upon the posting of appropriate signs within the LV2 night game tow area, that area shall be deemed, during the days and times specified in subsection (c) of this section, an officially designated and marked "tow zone" for purposes of Section 9-92-030(f).

In addition, during such days and times, the LV2 night game tow area shall be considered to be a residential parking permit zone for purposes of Section 9-64-090(e) and the penalty applicable for violations thereof shall apply.
SECTION 2. This ordinance shall take effect and be in force here in after its passage and publication.
