A. A license authorizes use of the public rights of way for installing cables, fiber, wires, lines, and other facilities to operate a cable system, but does not expressly or implicitly authorize the licensee to provide service to, or install cables, wires, lines, or any other equipment or facilities on private property without owner consent (except for use of: 1) compatible easements; or 2) rights of way under the cable act or other applicable law), or to use publicly or privately owned utility poles or conduits without a separate agreement with the owners.
B. A license is subject to the paramount right of use by the city and the public for public purposes. The city reserves the right to authorize use of public rights of way to other persons as it determines appropriate.
C. A license is nonexclusive and does not expressly or implicitly preclude the issuance of other licenses to operate cable systems within the city.
D. A license does not convey a property right to the licensee or a right to renewal other than as may be required by state or federal law.
E. A license agreement constitutes a contract between the licensee and the city once the licensee accepts it. A licensee and the city contractually commit themselves to comply with the terms, conditions and provisions of the license agreement and with all applicable laws, ordinances, codes, rules, regulations, and orders.
