Good day, and welcome to the Fairfax County News to Use podcast for Dec. 29, 2009. Coming up, find out about the new rules for parking commercial vehicle in neighborhoods and the dog license renewal deadline.
On December 7, 2009 the Board of Supervisors approved changes to Section 82-5-7 of the Fairfax County Code, which prohibits parking of commercial vehicles in residential districts. The code changes are intended to better define commercial vehicles in the County code, in order to improve parking enforcement and respond to complaints about large/commercial vehicles parking on residential streets. The effective date of these changes is February 1, 2010 followed by a 30 day warning period.
- Changes include code requirements for taxicabs and limousines: One resident of each single family dwelling unit may park one vehicle licensed and registered in the Commonwealth of Virginia as a taxicab or limousine
- It expands the definition of commercial vehicles restricted from parking in a residential area.
- And the changes clarify parking restrictions on service drives.

The renewal deadline for dog licenses is Jan. 31, 2010. All dogs four months of age and older must be licensed. Licenses are good for one year. The fee to purchase a dog license is $10.
