A. After a review of the registration statement to determine its compliance with Section 5.28.040 of this chapter, and, within ten (10) working days of the receipt of the registration statement, the City Recorder shall either issue a certificate of registration, in the form provided by Section 5.28.070 of this chapter, or notify the person registering that the registration statement does not comply with the requirements of Section 5.28.040 of this chapter, and specifically point out what information or explanation has not been furnished that is required before a certificate of registration can be issued. If the person registering is engaged in an activity for which a business license is required by this code, proof of a valid business license shall be furnished prior to the issuance of the certificate.
B. A certificate of registration shall be revoked by the City Recorder if a registered person, or one or more solicitors engaged on behalf of that person, are convicted or plead guilty or no contest to a cumulative minimum of three violations of Section 5.28.010 of this chapter occurring within any thirty (30) calendar day period in connection with or on behalf of the solicitation of the registered person. A certified copy of the municipal court record of plea or conviction is conclusive proof that a violation has occurred. The period of revocation shall be for sixty (60) calendar days, during which the person may not receive a certificate of registration. Within five working days of receipt of notification that a registered person has been convicted, plead guilty or no contest to the third violation the City Recorder shall notify the person designated in the registration statement to receive notice of the action to revoke, in writing, five days prior to the effective date of the revocation. The person may appeal the Recorder's decision to the City Council by filing a notice of appeal with the City Recorder within ten (10) days of the effective date of the revocation. During the pendency of the appeal the order to revoke is stayed. (Ord. 560 § 6, 1989)

5.28.080 "No Solicitation" sign.
A. If an occupant of real property chooses to not invite solicitors onto their property the occupant may post a "No Solicitation" sign pursuant to this section. The effect of the posting of such a sign is to express the refusal of the occupant to grant consent to any person to enter their real property to solicit, except to those persons exempt from these provisions by Section 5.28.030(D) and (E) of this chapter.
B. Signs posted pursuant to this section shall be posted on or near the boundaries of the property at the normal points of entry, and,

2. Signs must contain the words "No Solicitation" and the references "Pursuant to Section 1 of Waldport City Ordinance No. 560" in characters no less than one-half inch in height.
For real property possessing no apparent barriers to entry at the boundaries of the property which limit access to the primary entrance of a structure located on the property, placement of the sign at the primary entrance to the structure constitutes compliance with this section. (Ord. 560 § 8, 1989)
5.28.090 Evidentiary matters.
A. It shall be prima facie evidence of a violation of Section 5.28.020(A)(7) of this chapter if written material is found on property upon which a sign conforming to the requirements of Section 5.28.080 of this chapter has been posted. The person responsible for such written material shall be the person identified in the written material as its proponent, sponsor, distributor or potential beneficiary of the communication conveyed.
