[Ord. 34-2002, 03 § 2, passed 12-16-2002; Ord. 31-1982, 83 § 1, passed 7-26-1982]
The Director of Streets and Public Improvements shall cause a thorough inspection to be made from time to time of all poles erected within the City, and if any pole shall be found defective from any cause he shall notify the person owning such pole of the defect.
Following receipt of such notice from the City, each owner shall review the poles enumerated therein and, within 30 days after receipt of such notice, each pole owner shall meet with the Director or his representative, in an effort to agree on corrective measures to be taken in regard to such defective poles. Thereafter, such owner shall promptly proceed as agreed. In the event the parties are unable to agree within such thirty-day period, or if the owner fails to perform such agreement, the City shall thereafter notify the owner in writing that it will have 10 days from the receipt of such notice to complete such work as was agreed upon, or, if no such agreement was reached, as is specified in such notice.
Any owner failing to comply within such 10 days shall be subject to a fine of $10 for each and every day thereafter during which such neglect or refusal shall continue to be collected as debts of like amount are now by law recoverable.
