(a) All providers utilizing towers shall present a report to the Planning and Zoning Commission notifying them of any tower facility located in the Municipality whose use will be discontinued and the date this use will cease. If at any time the use of the facility is discontinued for one hundred and eighty (180) days, the Commission may declare the facility abandoned.

If reactivation or dismantling does not occur, the Municipality will remove or will contract to have removed the facility and assess the owner/operator the costs.
(b) To secure the obligation set forth in subsection (a) hereof, the Applicant and/or Owner shall post a bond with the Clerk-Treasurer in such reasonable amount as shall be recommended by the Village Engineer and determined by the Planning and Zoning Commission, based upon the anticipated cost of removal of the facility.
