  • This franchise shall be assignable only in accordance with the laws of the State of Kansas, as the same may exist at the time when any assignment is made, provided, however, that the franchise may be assigned by the Company without action by the City to any entity which succeeds to all or substantially all of the electric utility business of the Company. Provided, however, in the event that the Company is no longer required to obtain the approval of the Kansas Corporation Commission for an assignment, such assignment shall be subject to the consent of the City, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. In the event of an assignment to a successor, the Company shall be released from all obligations which are assumed in writing by such successor and the assignee shall have executed an assumption of the franchise being assigned.
