   (a)   Board to Notify Owner.  Whenever the Board determines that any property located in, upon, over, or under any public street, public place, or public easement in this City must be temporarily or permanently relocated or removed for public safety, necessity, welfare, or convenience, in order that public works, improvements or landscaping may be installed, constructed, or erected along any such public street, public place, or public easement, the Board shall give written notice to the person owning, maintaining, or controlling such property to relocate or remove the same as the Board shall determine. Such notice shall describe the property to be removed or relocated with particularity.
 
   Such written notices will be issued only for improvements, works, or landscaping done by this City or other governmental agency or instrumentality in a government capacity.
