Upon issuance pursuant to this article of an open air dining permit for a dining area in the public right of way, the permittee shall post and at all times while the permit is in existence, maintain a security bond and insurance.
A. The amount and form of the bond shall be designated by the reviewing authority at the time of approval of the open air dining permit, and shall be in an amount which is determined to be sufficient for removal of the open air dining area in the event the permittee fails to comply with the conditions of the permit. The form and content of the bond shall be satisfactory to the city attorney. The bond may be waived where it is determined that the potential for any injury to the city from the existence of the open air dining area is minimal. Any security bond required by this section may be cash, or cash equivalent security approved by the city attorney and the risk manager, or a bond in accordance with title 3, chapter 4 of this code.
B. The amount of insurance shall be designated by the city risk manager at the time of approval of the open air dining permit, and shall be in an amount which is determined to be sufficient to adequately protect the city, persons, and property from injuries or damages which may be caused by the use or operation of the open air dining area authorized by the permit. Insurance which is required under this section shall comply with the provisions of title 3, chapter 4 of this code. (Ord. 11-O-2615, eff. 12-16-2011)
