The blaster, the owner, the lessee, a contractor and a subcontractor whose work involves the use of explosives or dangerous ordnance shall comply with all these rules and regulations and none shall be saved harmless herefrom because of the errors of the other.
   (b)    The City temporary permit shall be obtained from the Fire Chief and shall be issued at least forty-eight hours in advance of the commencement of blasting operations. In addition, a deposit fee at a per diem rate not to exceed four hundred and fifty dollars ($450.00) shall be paid, per day, before issuance of the City temporary permit. Such deposit fee shall be used to pay for the services of the hereinafter appointed City Seismologist. Any part of such deposit fee unexpended in payments of services of such City Seismologist shall be refunded to the permittee. Prior to the issuance of any permit, the applicant shall file a "Notice of Intention to Blast" with the Fire Chief at least seven days prior to the commencement of such operations; however, no permit shall be issued at this time.
