(b) All businesses requesting participation in the State's specific information signing program shall submit an application form, provided by the Department of Transportation, containing the necessary information with the application fee in the form of a certified check or money order in the amount of $2,000.00 per interchange. The application fee will cover the cost of processing, field investigation, and permits. In the event the request is not approved, the application fee shall not be refunded.
(c) Upon approval of the application, the applicant shall receive an approval package. All approved applicants are required to submit a completed permit application to the Commissioner along with a Certificate of Insurance (Standard Industry Accord Form) furnished by the Department of Transportation, indicating the correct protective liability insurance coverage by the permittee. In addition to the Standard Industry Accord Form, the initial approved business of a signing installation shall also be required to execute an Information Sign Maintenance Concurrence and furnish a performance bond (minimum $10,000.00) to run for the life of the Concurrence.
(d) The first six applicants for gas, food, lodging and camping that meet the minimum criteria existing at the time of the initial application shall be given the opportunity to participate in the program. The Department shall allow a participating business to display its business signs for a period of not less than one year from the date of the initial installation of those signs, provided that business continues to operate under the terms of the Concurrence and in compliance with the minimum criteria. Excepted therefrom is the initial business who shall be allowed to display its business signs for a period of not less than two years from the date of the initial installation of those signs. However, once the maximum number of similar type businesses are participating in the specific information program at a particular interchange and a similar type business, closer in distance, qualifies and desires to participate in this program, the farthest participating business shall be removed from the program only after that business sign has been displayed for not less than one year from the date of initial installation or two years in the case of the initial business.
