§ 1525.

INDEMNIFICATION AND DEFENSE OF CITY

a.

Indemnification of City. As a condition of a Personal Wireless Service Site Facility Site Permit, each Permittee agrees on its behalf and on behalf of its agents, successors, or assigns, to indemnify, defend, protect, and hold harmless the City from and against any and all claims of any kind arising against the City as a result of the issuance of a Personal Wireless Service Facility Site Permit including, but not limited to, a claim allegedly arising directly or indirectly from the following:

1.

Any act, omission, or negligence of a Permittee or its any agents, successors, or assigns while engaged in the permitting, construction, installation, or maintenance of any Personal Wireless Service Facility authorized by a Personal Wireless Service Facility Site Permit, or while in or about the Public Rights-of-Way that are subject to the Permit for any reason connected in any way whatsoever with the performance of the work authorized by the Permit, or allegedly resulting directly or indirectly from the permitting, construction, installation, or maintenance of any Personal Wireless Service Facility authorized under the Permit;

2.

Any accident, damage, death, or injury to any of a Permittee’s contractors or subcontractors, or any officers, agents, or employees of either of them, while engaged in the performance of the construction, installation, or maintenance of any Personal Wireless Service Facility authorized by a Personal Wireless Service Facility Site Permit, or while in or about the Public Rights-of-Way that are subject to the Permit, for any reason connected with the performance of the work authorized by the Permit, including from exposure to radio frequency emissions;

3.

Any accident, damage, death, or injury to any Person or accident, damage, or injury to any real or personal property in, upon, or in any way allegedly connected with the construction, installation, or maintenance of any Personal Wireless Service Facility authorized by a Personal Wireless Service Facility Site Permit, or while in or about the Public Rights-of-Way that are subject to the Permit, from any causes or claims arising at any time, including any causes or claims arising from exposure to radio frequency emissions; and

4.

Any release or discharge, or threatened release or discharge, of any hazardous material caused or allowed by a Permittee or its agents about, in, on, or under the Public Rights-of-Way.

b.

Defense of the City. Each Permittee agrees that, upon the request of the City, the Permittee, at no cost or expense to the City, shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the City against any claims as set forth in Sections 1525(a) above, regardless of the alleged negligence of City or any other party, except only for claims resulting directly from the sole negligence or willful misconduct of the City. Each Permittee specifically acknowledges and agrees that it has an immediate and independent obligation to defend the City from any claims that actually or potentially fall within the indemnity provision, even if the allegations are or may be groundless, false, or fraudulent, which obligation arises at the time such claim is tendered to the Permittee or its agent by the City and continues at all times thereafter. Each Permittee further agrees that the City shall have a cause of action for indemnity against the Permittee for any costs the City may be required to pay as a result of defending or satisfying any claims that arise from or in connection with a Personal Wireless Service Facility Site Permit, except only for claims resulting directly from the sole negligence or willful misconduct of the City. Each Permittee further agrees that the indemnification obligations assumed under a Personal Wireless Service Facility Site Permit shall survive expiration of the Permit or completion of installation of any Personal Wireless Service Facility authorized by the Permit.

c.

Additional Requirements. The Department may specify in a Personal Wireless Service Facility Site Permit such additional indemnification requirements as are necessary to protect the City from risks of liability associated with the Permittee’s construction, installation, and maintenance of a Personal Wireless Service Facility.
