Notwithstanding the above sections, it shall be lawful to post or affix printed or graphic materials upon public property in the city for up to 60 days preceding a national, state or local election or referendum to be held in the city, when the materials relate to the candidates seeking election or the political issues being voted upon; provided, however, the Chief of Police may require the giving of a bond by those posting the election-related materials, the amount of the bond to be commensurate with the cost of removing the materials so posted. If the election-related materials are not removed within 15 days following the scheduled election, the bond may be retained by the city to defray the costs of removing the election-related posters and materials.
