Rule 5501:2-2-07 | Illegal advertising device and sign face removal procedures.
When the advertising device control section determines that an advertising device or other sign is in violation of any section of Chapter 5516. of the Revised Code or any rule contained in Chapter 5501:2-2 of the Administrative Code, or the advertising device is being maintained without a validly issued permit, it shall send a letter of warning to the advertising device or sign owner, if known, that such advertising device or sign is illegal. If the advertising device or sign owner is not known or can not be located, such letter shall be sent to the owner or lessee of the land and shall be posted on the sign or advertising device or its structure for thirty days. The letter shall indicate that the advertising device or sign is illegal pursuant to the specific statute or rule which it violates, and shall request that the advertising device or sign owner or land owner or lessee voluntarily remove the advertising device or sign or take specific remedial action as outlined in the letter within a specified period of time, if remedial action is appropriate. Only one equal extension of time to take remedial action will be granted. If voluntary removal or remedial action is not taken within the specified time or its extension, the matter will be submitted to the director for the issuance of a removal order pursuant to section 5516.04 of the Revised Code.
