That §8-14-5a of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:

Parking enforcement officers may sign complaints and issue citations.
(b) Parking enforcement officers shall:
(1) Be in uniform;
(2) Display a badge or other sign of authority; and
(3) Serve at the will and pleasure of their employer.
