Any franchise granted hereunder is subject to the lawful police power of the city to adopt and enforce ordinances of general applicability which are necessary to the safety and welfare of the public; and all grantees shall agree to comply with all applicable general laws and ordinances enacted by the city pursuant to such power.
In the event of a conflict between a franchise and this chapter or any other enabling ordinance, law or regulation in effect at the time of this chapter or adopted thereafter, the terms and conditions of the franchise shall be controlling. If the franchise is silent, this chapter and/or any applicable federal and state statutes shall govern. The city may from time to time amend this chapter pursuant to its lawful police powers, provided, however, such amendments shall not serve to impair the contractual rights or increase the obligations of the grantee pursuant to the franchise.
