No person shall erect or maintain upon any premises situated within the city a barbed-wire fence, unless the property is zoned or legally devoted to agricultural use; provided, however, this restriction shall not be deemed to prohibit security-type fences where at least the first six feet above the ground is constructed of other material and the only barbed-wire appears toward the top of the fence. Where a barbed-wire fence is permissible and, subject to the exception previously noted in this section, no new barbed-wire fences shall be erected or maintained within ten feet of the property line along any public street, land or alley adjoining such property, unless a use permit is first obtained from the board of adjustments. (Prior code § 4286)

B. Any such container found within the space or area shall be deemed to be an encroachment which may be summarily removed by the city fifteen days after mailing written notice to the occupants of the residence or residences situated nearest thereto, unless the occupants shall then possess a valid city approval.

C. Enforcement. This section shall be enforced by the director of public services. (Prior code § 4287)
