(A)   For the purposes of operating and maintaining a cable system in the city, the grantee may erect, install, construct, repair, replace, reconstruct, and retain in public ways within city such lines, cables, conductors, ducts, conduits, vaults, manholes, amplifiers, appliances, pedestals, attachments, and other property and equipment as are necessary and appurtenant to the operation of the cable system, provided that all applicable permits are, applied for and granted, all required fees are paid and all other pertinent city government policies and procedures are met.
   (B)   Prior to construction or alteration, the grantee shall in each case file plans with all appropriate city agencies and utility companies and receive written approval of such plans which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.  The grantee shall provide a monthly progress report to city government until the completion of construction or alteration of the cable system.
   (C)   The grantee shall construct and maintain its cable system so as not to interfere with other uses of public ways.  To the extent possible, the grantee shall make use of existing poles and other facilities available to the grantee prior to installing new poles and other facilities in and along public ways.  The grantee shall individually notify all residents affected by proposed construction prior to the commencement of that work.
   (D)   Notwithstanding the above grant to use public ways, no public way shall be used by the grantee if the city government, in its sole opinion, determines that such use is inconsistent with the terms, conditions, or provisions by which such public was created or dedicated, or presently used.
