A right-of-way permit shall be approved by the City after submission of an application and only if the applicant has satisfied the requirements of this Chapter. The permit form and application shall be prepared by the City Public Works Director and be available to the public and shall require such information as is necessary and appropriate to enforce the requirements and policies of this Chapter. The City shall not be subject to this requirement provided that all other applicable requirements of law are satisfied.
B. Property owners shall bear all responsibility for the maintenance of landscaping, sprinkler systems, decorations, and any other appurtenances of the adjacent property owner's land use installed within the right-of-way and ensure that these do not threaten the public safety and will remove these items at no cost to the City immediately on demand of the Public Works Director. Non-governmental signage or permanent structures shall not be permitted pursuant to this Subsection.
