Sec. 20-2-35. Relocation, removal or abandonment necessitated by city.

If any future construction, reconstruction or maintenance work by the city on a right-of-way or watercourse, requires the relocation, removal or abandonment of installations or encroachments in, on, or under the right-of-way or watercourse, a permittee that owns, controls or maintains such installations or encroachments shall relocate, remove or abandon the same at his or her sole expense; provided, that this provision shall apply to and remain in force and effect only so long as a right- of-way upon which such installations or structures are located shall be used for street purposes and not as a state or federal route; and this provision shall cease to apply when such street shall become a state or federal route. When removal, relocation or abandonment is required, the director of public works shall notify the permittee in writing and specify the place of relocation or that the installations or encroachment must be removed, relocated, or abandoned. If such permittee fails to comply with such instructions within ninety days, the city may cause the removal, relocation or abandonment of the encroachment at the expense of the permittee. (Ord. No. 1201, § 2 (part).)
