[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Footville 8-7-1997 by Ord. No. 8-7-97A. Amendments noted where applicable.]
No person may place, erect, maintain, or permit the placement, erection or existence of a newspaper box, or any device, within or upon any public terrace, street, or other public right-of-way within the Village. Any newspaper box or device upon or near the curb whose sole purpose is not for the collection of United States mail may be removed at direction of the Village Engineer as discussed in § 211-2 of this chapter.
Each newspaper box or similar device, support(s), and/or protection(s) thereto constructed, repaired, replaced, or maintained contrary to any provision and/or requirement set forth in this chapter shall be removed by the abutting property owner and/or possessor within 10 days of notification from the Village Engineer ordering such removal. In the event that such owner and/or possessor fails to remove such nonconforming and/or violative newspaper box or similar device, support(s), and/or protection(s) thereto, the Village Engineer may, without additional notice, remove or cause the removal thereof. The cost(s) for such removal may be filed as a special assessment statement/charge against such abutting real property with the Village Clerk, entered upon the tax rolls therefor, and collected as other special assessments and taxes upon real property.
