Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I).
It shall be unlawful to cover, conceal, obstruct, destroy, remove, deface or vandalize any street number or road/street name sign installed or displayed pursuant to and in accordance with the requirements of this article.
Any person who shall be found to have engaged in the prohibited unlawful conduct as set forth in this chapter or who shall, after formal warning, fail to comply with any order to comply with the street numbering regulations shall be subject to penalty as provided in the codified ordinances of the Borough.
Should any of the required provisions of this chapter become a matter of conflict regarding the placement of signage requiring the need of mediation, the Borough of Bradford Woods Council will designate the Chief of Police as mediator to reach an appropriate decision regarding the correct placement of the signage.
