(1) Every licensee that ceases to operate a communications facility located within the city shall, upon written request of the city made within two years of the cessation of operation of such facility, promptly remove the facility, or any part thereof, and restore the property and right-of-way to the condition prior to installation. If the licensee neglects, refuses, or fails to remove the facility or part thereof, or to restore the property, the city may remove or restore it at the expense of the licensee. The obligation to remove shall survive the termination of the license. The city may require a licensee, prior to installation of a facility, to post a bond in an amount sufficient to cover the cost of removal of the facility and restoration of the property and right-of-way.

(2) If a licensee violates any provision of sections 3.400, 3.405, 3.410, 3.415, 3.420 or administrative rules adopted pursuant to section 3.430 and fails to remedy the violation within ten days of receiving notice of the violation, the city manager may terminate the licensee’s use of the right-of-way.

(Section 3.425 added by Ordinance No. 20083, enacted April 28, 1997.)
