(A) Any newsrack installed, used or maintained in violation of the provisions of these sections may be removed and stored by the development services manager or designee ten working days after mailing notice to the address given in the permittee's application for a newsrack permit that such newsrack will be removed. The notice shall give the permittee the opportunity to cure the violation or to be heard at an informal conference with the development services manager. The permittee shall be notified if the newsrack is removed and stored.
(B) The development services manager may summarily remove any newsrack which poses a danger to pedestrians or vehicles, creates a health or safety hazard for pedestrians or vehicles, or otherwise unreasonably interferes with the safe use of public streets or sidewalks. The permittee shall be notified if the newsrack is removed. The notice shall give the permittee the opportunity to be heard at an informal conference with the development services manager.
(C) The notice of removal or intended removal shall include a form for requesting an informal conference with the development services manager as to the reasons for the removal or intended removal of the newsrack. If the permittee wishes to contest the removal or intended removal of a newsrack, the permittee shall, within ten working days of the mailing of the notice return to the city such request for an informal conference with the development services manager as to the reasons for such removal or intended removal of the newsrack. Following such conference, a written decision shall be mailed to the permittee.
(D) If within 30 days following a notice of removal of a newsrack, or, if a conference was requested and the removal was upheld, within 30 days following the mailing of the decision, the permittee fails to claim the newsrack and pay the expenses of removal and storage, the newsrack shall be deemed unclaimed property in possession of the city and may be disposed of pursuant to law.
