Dredged up from deep within the Glendale Municipal Code:
I called Glendale PD to ask whether registration was still mandatory and find out how to proceed with registering my three bikes. The person on the phone transferred me to the department that handles registration, where I left a message. I haven't heard back.
A. No person shall ride, operate, use or knowingly permit any other person to ride, operate or use upon any street in the city, any bicycle which is not registered and for which the registration fee has not been paid as required by this chapter and which does not have attached thereto and displayed thereon a valid registration indicia issued for it by the city for the current registration period; except, that a bicycle registered and bearing an indicia for a registration period may be operated during that portion of a succeeding registration period in which the bicycle may be registered without penalty.
The chief of police shall cause any bicycle operated in violation of any of the provisions of this chapter to be impounded until the same shall have been registered, reregistered or transferred pursuant to the terms of this chapter. Bicycles which have not been so registered or reregistered within one year after being impounded shall be deemed to have been abandoned and may be sold by the chief of police at public auction. (Prior code § 27-60)
Registration is 50 cents a year.
