(A)   In accordance with the provisions of division (C) of this section, the Deputy City Manager may promulgate regulations, as the Deputy City Manager deems appropriate from time to time, to carry out the express purposes and intent of this chapter.
   (B)   Such regulations shall not materially increase the obligations of any permittee hereunder. In promulgating such regulations, including those related to § 908.06, the Deputy City Manager shall, among other appropriate factors, consider the costs of permittee compliance as an important factor in determining the appropriateness of the regulations.
   (C)   The Deputy City Manager shall promulgate proposed regulations by forwarding legislation for City Council's consideration. Each general right-of-way occupancy permittee shall be served with a copy of the proposed regulations by certified U.S.  mail; provided, however, that any failure of any permittee to actually receive such notice shall not in any way affect the validity or enforceability of such regulation.  Any person, including any permittee, may file specific written comments or objections on the proposed regulations within a 30-day period after publication of notice of intent in a publication of general circulation (hereinafter “comment period”). The proposed regulations shall become effective 30 days after adoption by City Council, unless such regulation is modified or rejected by City Council.
   (D)   The City Council may adopt emergency regulations to be immediately effective, when the City Council determines the same to be appropriate or required by the public health, safety or welfare; provided, however, that any such regulation shall nonetheless be subject to the comment and review process as set forth in division (D) of this section.
