Every applicant for a permit to erect or attach to any building or other structure any awning, canopy or marquee over and across public property of the City shall, before the permit is granted, file with the City a continuing bond in a sum to be fixed by the Building Official, executed by the applicant and a surety company to be approved by the Director of Law and conditioned on the faithful observance of the provisions of this chapter and all amendments thereto, and of all laws and ordinances relating to awnings, canopies and marquees. Such bond shall indemnify and save harmless the City from any and all damages, judgments, costs or expenses which the City may incur or suffer by reason of the granting of such permit. Any person lawfully maintaining an awning, canopy or marquee suspended over a street beyond the building line at the time of the enactment of this chapter (Ordinance 69-21, passed July 1, 1969) shall, within sixty days after such enactment, comply with all the provisions set forth in this section. A liability insurance policy issued by an insurance company authorized to do business in the State, conforming to this section, may be permitted in lieu of a bond, and a copy of such policy or bond shall be filed with the City.
