9-13-12: ENFORCEMENT:
   (A)   Unsafe And Unlawful Signs: If the director finds that any sign is unsafe or insecure, is a menace to the public, or has been constructed, erected, or stands in violation of the provisions of this chapter, he shall give written notice to the owner of the property upon which the sign is located. If the owner fails to remove or alter the sign so as to comply with the standards set forth herein within ten (10) days after such notice, the director may issue a citation and/or institute court proceedings for the removal/repair thereof. Provided, however, the director may cause any sign which is an immediate peril to person or property to be removed summarily and without notice.
   (B)   Maintenance And Repair: Every sign, including, but not limited to, those signs for which no permits or permit fees are required, shall be maintained in a safe, presentable and good condition at all times. If the owner fails to abate any maintenance issues within ten (10) days after notice by the director, he may issue a citation and/or institute court proceedings for the removal/repair thereof.
   (C)   Alterations: No display sign or outdoor device shall be altered, rebuilt, enlarged, extended or relocated, except in conformity with the provisions of this chapter. The repainting, changing of parts and preventative maintenance of signs shall not be deemed to be alterations if performed by the sign permit holder.
   (D)   Compliance: Nothing in this chapter shall limit the methods by which the director ensures compliance with the standards set forth herein. The director is authorized to take any measure not prohibited by law to obtain compliance with this chapter. (Ord. 08-08, 7-21-2008)
