All signs shall be properly maintained. Exposed surfaces shall be clean and painted if paint is required. Defective parts shall be replaced. The Administrator shall have the right under this Sign Code to order the repair or removal of any sign which is defective, damaged, or substantially deteriorated; furthermore, particular types of construction materials are deemed by the City likely to lead to production of litter or other aesthetic problems if posted for an extended period of time; therefore, the City has determined that the life span of temporary signs or decorations, including “temporary and easily removable 1st Amendment signs”, made of lightweight tin, wood, wire, rope, wire frame, cardboard, rubber or plastic, or any combination thereof, is thirty (30) days; therefore, such signs or decorations must be removed and/or replaced every thirty (30) days from date of the erection of such sign or decoration.
   “Temporary and easily removable 1st Amendment signs” when in the public right-of-way shall be controlled by Section 1335.06 due to the temporary nature of the signs and the potential for obstructing streets and sidewalks if not properly maintained.
