§ 9-632. Television Access Providers And Installers.

(1) Findings: The Findings set forth in Section PM-304.6.1 of this Code are incorporated herein by reference.

(2) Where an alternative location is available for placement of a satellite dish or antenna, with no material delay or reduction in signal reception and at no significant additional cost to the owner or tenant (including but not limited to a roof, rear yard or facade, or side yard or facade), no television access provider or installer shall place or install a satellite dish or antenna between the facade of a one-family dwelling and the street.

(3) Where an alternative location is available, including but not limited to a roof, rear yard or facade, or side yard or facade, no television access provider or installer shall place or install a satellite dish or antenna between the facade of a multiple-family or two-family dwelling and the street, unless the device is wholly within a balcony or patio area that is under the exclusive use or control of the unit owner or tenant.

(4) If the television access provider or installer ascertains, at the time of installation, that a satellite dish or antenna cannot be placed at a one-family dwelling in a location other than between the facade of a building and the street without a material delay, material reduction in signal reception or significant additional cost, or cannot be placed on a multiple-family or two-family dwelling in compliance with § 9-632(3) hereof, the provider or installer shall provide the user of the device with a signed statement certifying that, based on actual testing conducted at the site, the satellite dish or antenna cannot be placed in a location other than between the facade of the building and the street without a material delay, material reduction in signal reception or significant additional cost. In the case of a multiple-family or two-family dwelling, the certification shall state that no alternative location was available as required by § 9-632(3). A copy of the certification form shall be provided to the Department, and a copy shall be maintained at the office of the installer or provider.

(5) A television access provider or installer of an existing satellite dish or antenna located between the facade of the building and the street shall, within 60 days after the date this ordinance is signed into law, notify the Department, in a form satisfactory to the Department, of the existence of the device, if the owner or tenant of the building at which the satellite dish or antenna is installed intends to continue to maintain the device at that location.

(6) The television access provider or installer of a satellite dish or antenna shall remove all satellite dishes or antennas that it previously installed, when such dish or antenna is no longer in service.

(7) No television access provider or installer shall place or install a satellite dish or antenna between the facade of a building and the street, where such dish or antenna does not meet one of the criteria set forth in § PM-304.6.2.4, and unless the installer has painted the dish to match the color of the building facade as closely as possible.

(8) A television access provider or installer who is found to be in violation of any of the provisions of this section may be assessed a penalty as provided in § 9-105.
