§ 15. Indemnity and Hold Harmless  


Latest version.
  • The Grantee shall hold and save the City, its officers, employees, agents, and authorized contractors, harmless from and against all claims, damages, expense, liability, and costs including attorney fees, which may be occasioned in any manner, solely or in part by the Grantee's occupancy of right-of-way, or provision of service under this franchise except to the extent caused by the negligence of the City or its agents. In the event a claim shall be made or an action shall be instituted against the City growing out of such occupancy of the right-of-way by facilities of the Grantee, then upon notice by the City to the Grantee, the Grantee will assume liability for the defense of such actions at the cost of the Grantee, subject to the option of the City to appear and defend, at its own cost, any such case.
