(D) If the required location of a monument is in an inaccessible place, or where the locating of a monument would be clearly impractical, it is sufficient to place a reference monument nearby and the precise location thereof be clearly indicated on the plat and referenced to the true point.
(E) If a point required to be monumented is on a bedrock outcropping, a steel rod, at least ½ inch in diameter shall be drilled and grouted into solid rock to a depth of at least eight inches.

(H) The City Commission may waive the placing of any of the required monuments and markers for a reasonable time, not to exceed one year, on condition that the proprietor deposits with the city cash or a certified check, or irrevocable bank letter of credit running to the city, whichever the proprietor selects, in an amount not less than $100 per monument and not less than $400 in total, except that lot corner markers shall be at the rate of not less than $25 per markers. Such cash, certified check or irrevocable bank letter of credit shall be returned to the proprietor upon receipt of a certificate by a surveyor that the monuments and markers have been placed as required within the time specified.
