(A) The operator of any tourist-oriented activity who wishes to participate in the tourist-oriented directional sign program established under sections 4511.102 to 4511.105 of the Revised Code shall forward a completed application, as provided in section 4511.103 of the Revised Code, to the director of transportation or person holding a contract under division (B) of section 4511.103 of the Revised Code. If the director or person finds the application to be complete and determines that the activity constitutes an eligible attraction, the director or person shall so notify the applicant in writing. Upon receipt of the notice, the applicant shall forward to the director or person, in a manner determined by the director, the amount of the fee due and thereupon shall execute an advertising agreement in a form prescribed by the director.

(B) The operator of any eligible attraction for which an advertising agreement is in effect under this section immediately shall forward the advertising agreement to the director or person holding a contract under division (B) of section 4511.103 of the Revised Code for cancellation if the eligible attraction ceases to be such an attraction.

(C) The director, when having reasonable cause to believe that an eligible attraction for which an advertising agreement is in effect has ceased to be such an attraction, immediately and without conducting an adjudication shall issue an order canceling the advertising agreement and forward notice of the cancellation in writing to the operator of the attraction together with information that the cancellation may be appealed in accordance with section 119.12 of the Revised Code. If no appeal is entered within the period specified in that section or if an appeal is entered but cancellation of the advertising agreement subsequently is affirmed, the director shall order the removal of the signs relating to the former eligible attraction.

(D) Any person holding a contract under division (B) of section 4511.103 of the Revised Code, when having reasonable cause to believe that an eligible attraction for which an advertising agreement is in effect has ceased to be such an attraction, immediately shall notify the director in writing of that fact. Upon receipt of the notice, the director shall proceed in accordance with division (C) of this section.
