(a)   The City may utilize a rate consultant to advise it on initial review and proposed rate changes and to assist it in the procedures and the standards for review adopted by the FCC. A rate consultant may be any person who has sufficient background and experience, in the sole opinion of the City, to properly evaluate and analyze rates and charges.
   (b)   All costs for the review of initial rates or rate changes shall be paid by the cable operator upon demand of the City, unless contrary to applicable rules of the FCC governing these procedures or unless otherwise specifically preempted by State or Federal law. The costs shall include, but not be limited to, rate consultants, attorney's fees and the reasonable value of services (as determined by the City) rendered by the City or any City employees, agents or representatives of the City.
