Unless otherwise provided in a license or franchise agreement, each grantee shall, as a condition of the grant, secure and maintain the following liability insurance policies insuring both the grantee and the City, and its elected and appointed officers, officials, agents and employees as coinsured:

A. Comprehensive general liability insurance with limits not less than $1,000,000 for bodily injury or death to each person; $1,000,000 for property damage resulting from any one accident; and, $1,000,000 for all other types of liability.

B. Automobile liability for owned, nonowned and hired vehicles with a limit of $1,000,000 for each person and $1,000,000 for each accident.

C. Workers’ compensation within statutory limits and employer’s liability insurance with limits of not less than $1,000,000.

D. The liability insurance policies required by this section shall be maintained by the grantee throughout the term of the telecommunications license or franchise, and such other period of time during which the grantee is operating without a franchise, or is engaged in the removal of its telecommunications facilities. Each such insurance policy shall contain the following endorsement:

“This policy may not be canceled nor the intention not to renew be stated until 90 days after receipt by the City, by registered mail, of a written notice addressed to the City’s risk manager of such intent to cancel or not to renew.”

Within 60 days after receipt by the City of such notice, and in no event later than 30 days prior to the cancellation, the grantee shall obtain and furnish to the City evidence that the grantee meets requirements of this section.

The insurance policy requirements of this section may be met by a program of self-insurance acceptable to the City. (Ord. 2850 § 34, amended, 10/19/1999)
