No person, firm, or corporation shall erect, or maintain, any sign, signboard, poster, or rigid canopy over any street, sidewalk, alley, or on other public property without having first obtained a permit therefor. Permits for signs, canopies, posters, and signboards shall be issued by the Municipal Clerk, subject to the approval of the Building Inspector, upon the payment of a fee set by resolution of the Governing Body. All signs and canopies extending over any public sidewalk, street, alley, or other public place must be securely fastened and constructed so that there will be no danger of the same being dislodged by ordinary winds, or falling from other causes. No sign or canopy shall be erected or maintained which extends over any public sidewalk, street, alley, or other public place in such a location as to obstruct the view of any traffic light, sign, or signal. Upon the written order of the Governing Body, any person owning or occupying the premise where such a sign, canopy, poster, or signboard is located, shall cause the same to be removed within the time limit specified on the notice.
