No owner of any dwelling or mobile home park or his agent may forbid or prevent any tenant or occupant of the dwelling or mobile home park from receiving cable television service from the franchisee, nor discriminate in rental charges or otherwise against any such tenant or occupant receiving cable television service from the franchisee. Such owner or his agent may require that the installation of cable television facilities conform to all reasonable conditions necessary to protect the safety, functioning, appearance and value of the premises and the convenience, safety and well-being of other tenants or occupants. A franchisee installing any such facilities for the benefit of a tenant or occupant in any dwelling or mobile home park shall agree to indemnify the owner thereof for any damage or compensate the owner thereof for any taking of the owner’s property caused by the installation, operation or removal of such facilities and for any liability which may arise out of such installation, operation or removal. The franchisee shall also indemnify the City for any damages arising from the application of this section. Any dispute hereunder shall be referred to the Telecommunications Advisory Commission.
