(A) The city may, at any time after the effective date of this subchapter, order the removal of a particular outdoor pay telephone that is in the public right-of-way, unless the telephone is authorized under a contract with the city. Such an order will identify the location of the telephone to be removed. Any outdoor pay telephone that is not removed within 14 days after an order directing its removal shall be subject to immediate removal by the city at the owner’s expense.
(B) Any outdoor pay telephone removed by the city pursuant to this section may be reclaimed by its owner within 30 days after its removal. The owner must reimburse the city for its removal and storage costs before any such telephone may be reclaimed. Such costs shall also include the costs of removing any wires or equipment ancillary to the installation of the outdoor pay telephone and the costs of restoring the public right-of-way to its original condition. Any telephone not so reclaimed may be disposed of as unclaimed property.
