5.50.060 – Emergency

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article, however, the City may remove any device from public property which, because of its location or condition, poses an immediate threat to the health, safety and welfare of the public or a member thereof.  The City Administrator (or his/her designate) shall send, by certified mail, with return receipt requested, a written notice to the address of the owner or user of the newspaper dispensing device.  The notice shall state the address and telephone number of the City Administrator (or his/her designate) and a description of why the newspaper dispensing device was removed.  The owner may request a hearing before the Government Operations Committee by filing a written appeal with the City Administrator (or his/her designate).  In this event, a hearing shall be held, according to Section 5.50.080, for the purpose of determining whether there is a continued need for the removal.
