such permits shall entitle any vehicle displaying such permit to park in
any area in any city, town or village of the state which has been desig-
nated  by  such  city,  town or village or pursuant to the provisions of
section twelve hundred three-c of this article as a  place  for  parking

ity, and procedures for reissuance of such permits shall  be  as  deter-
mined  by  the  commissioner.  A  city, town or village issuing a permit
pursuant to this subdivision or subdivision three of this section  shall
indelibly  inscribe  or  otherwise mark, on the face of such permit, the
last three digits of the identification number of the  driver's  license
or  non-driver  identification  card of the person to whom the permit is
issued. The governing bodies of cities, towns and villages in the  state
