    The Grantee shall use existing poles, towers or other existing facilities wherever possible and it shall be the sole responsibility of the Grantee to negotiate and enter into any and all contracts with the owner of such facilities to secure the necessary space thereon or therein for its operation under this franchise, and the Grantee shall permit any other utility or utilities by appropriate contract or agreement negotiated by the parties to use any and all facilities constructed or erected by the Grantee. All said agreements and installations shall be subject to all existing and future ordinances and regulations of the City.

The erection of poles shall be subject to the provisions of Section 4 and all existing and future ordinances and regulations of the City applicable thereto.


    The Grantee shall not install or erect any facilities or apparatus in or on other public property, places or rights-of-way, or within any privately-owned area within the City which has not yet become a public street but is designated or delineated as a proposed public street on any tentative subdivision map approved by the City, except those installed or erected upon public facilities now existing, without obtaining the prior written approval of the City Engineer.
