Other evidence of value may include bona fide invoices, auction records, and fine art gallery records.
G. Shall maintain in full force and effect at all times, insurance coverage in the amount of the most recent appraised value, insuring such fine art against any loss or damage, including vandalism, in accordance with the provisions of chapter 4 of this title. Annual proof of insurance coverage must be provided to the city.
H.
