The license collector shall issue no business license for outdoor advertising on bus benches:
(A) To a business that did not hold such a city business license for the period from July 1, 1994, to June 30, 1995, or any part thereof.
(B) To a business that includes in its list of bus benches any bus bench at a location that was not included in the list of bus benches for which a business license was issued for the period from July 1, 1994, through June 30, 1995, or any part thereof.
(C) To a business that does not provide with its application for a business license a cash deposit, or a bond or letter of credit in a form satisfactory to the city attorney, conditioned on the applicant's maintaining, repairing and removing all benches as and within the time required by this article. Such security shall be in the amount of $50 times the number of bus benches for which the business license is applied. The city manager may draw on such security in the amount of $50 for each bus bench that is not maintained, repaired or removed within the time required by this article and shall use such amount to defray the costs of public auction or conversion of the bus bench to city use, as provided by section 9-13. No part of amounts so drawn shall be refunded to the owner, whether or not such costs equal $50 per bench. Requiring and drawing on such security are additional remedies to, and do not preclude, the remedies provided in section 9-13. Such security shall remain in full force and effect, and in the case of a cash deposit, such deposit shall be retained by the license collector, for 90 days after the expiration of the license.
(D) For the period from July 1, 1997, to June 30, 1998, or any part thereof, to a business that has not removed all of its bus benches that, as of the effective date of this article, did not contain advertising that the business was being paid to display.
(E)For the period from and after July 1, 1998, to any business.
