Sec. 11-2-40.   Permit required.
   (a)   Any repair, construction, building, remodeling or other functions which damage or disturb the surface of public lands as defined above within the City limits are prohibited until such time as the entity, owner or contractor wishing to do the work has shown adequate reason for the proposed work, has obtained a written permit and the utilities for the area involved have been tagged by the City or appropriate entity. Approval of this permit will be valid for one (1) specific purpose only, and each permit must be accompanied by an insurance certificate naming the City as an additional insured in the amount specified on the permit, together with proof of workers' compensation insurance, equipment liability insurance and any other proof of insurance coverage the City may deem necessary. The certificate of insurance must cover liability for any injury to persons or property caused by the proposed project. Self-insurance is not acceptable. The City reserves the right to demand inspection of the entire insurance policy and endorsements, and will require at least thirty (30) days' prior notification of cancellation or nonrenewable during the course of the proposed project. In addition, a "hold-harmless" indemnification agreement will be required from the permit applicant. A permit application fee may be charged by the City to process an application.
   (b)   The City shall require a bond insuring that the City shall not be responsible to pay for any damage to the public lands.
