(A) In granting a film permit, any reasonable conditions may be imposed as necessary to protect public health, safety, and general welfare or property. Factors which may be taken into consideration include, but are not limited to: noise, traffic congestion, traffic hazards, fire hazards, environmental issues, interference with street maintenance work and possible violations of federal, state or local law. Conditions which may be attached to the film permit may include, but are not limited to: use of City employees, such as Fire and Police at the permittee’s expense; implementation of traffic control measures at the permittee’s expense; cleanup and restoration of property used in the filming activity at permittee’s expense, as well as restrictions of firearms and noise-creating or hazardous devices, pyrotechnics, vehicle crashes, and other hazardous materials and/or activity; time of filming activity.
(B) Issuance of the permit shall depend on the availability of Police, Fire and other necessary personnel and equipment. A minimum of two Police officers and one Fire watch personnel shall be on location at all times to ensure that all photo/film production is done safely with a minimum amount of disruption to the citizens of Alhambra. Their purpose is not to act as security for the photo/film production company. The City Manager may temporarily suspend filming activities when Police and Fire personnel assigned to the location are required to respond to an emergency elsewhere in the City. If it can be demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Chief of Police and/or the Fire Chief that proper safety measures will be in place for the filming activity and throughout the duration of the filming activity, the Police and Fire personnel requirement may be waived at the City’s sole discretion.
(C) A permit may be revoked if it can be shown that there has been a material misrepresentation in the permit application with respect to the nature of the filming activity, the number of personnel or equipment, or other relevant matter; and whereby the filming activity, as conducted, has become a hazard to persons or property, or unduly disruptive to neighboring businesses or residents.
