(A) Required Coverages And Limits: Unless otherwise provided by franchise, license, or similar agreement, each wireless provider, utility or contractor excavating or occupying right-of-way or constructing any facility in the right-of- way shall secure and maintain liability insurance policies insuring the wireless provider, utility or contractor as named insured and naming the Village, and its elected and appointed officers, officials, agents, and employees as additional insureds on the policies listed in subsection (A)1 of this section, and in Title 1, Chapter 20, “Fees, Fines, Insurance, Guarantees, and Regulatory Measures”:
1. Commercial general liability insurance, including premises-operations, explosion, collapse, and underground hazard (commonly referred to as "X", "C", and "U" coverages) and products-completed operations coverage with limits set forth in Title 1, Chapter 20, “Fees, Fines, Insurance, Guarantees, and Regulatory Measures”:
(a) Bodily injury or death to each person;
(b) Property damage resulting from any one accident; and
(c) All other types of liability;
(d) Wireless providers must provide a Certificate of Coverage evidencing the Village of Lisle as an additional insured on the commercial general liability policy;
2. Workers' compensation with statutory limits; and
3. Property insurance for replacement costs against all risks.
If the wireless provider, utility or contractor is not providing such insurance to protect the contractors and subcontractors performing the work, then such contractors and subcontractors shall comply with this section.
(B) Excess Or Umbrella Policies: The coverages required by this section may be in any combination of primary, excess, and umbrella policies. Any excess or umbrella policy must provide excess coverage over underlying insurance on a following form basis such that when any loss covered by the primary policy exceeds the limits under the primary policy, the excess or umbrella policy becomes effective to cover such loss.
(C) Copies Required: The wireless provider or utility shall provide copies of any of the policies required by this section to the Village within ten (10) days following receipt of a written request therefor from the Village.
(D) Maintenance And Renewal Of Required Coverages: The insurance policies required by this section shall contain the following endorsement:
It is hereby understood and agreed that this policy may not be canceled nor the intention not to renew be stated until thirty (30) days after receipt by the Village, by registered mail or certified mail, return receipt requested, of a written notice addressed to the Village Manager of such intent to cancel or not to renew.
Within ten (10) days after receipt by the Village of said notice, and in no event later than ten (10) days prior to said cancellation, the wireless provider or utility shall obtain and furnish to the Village evidence of replacement insurance policies meeting the requirements of this section.
(E) Self-Insurance: A wireless provider or utility may self- insure all or a portion of the insurance coverage and limit requirements required by subsection (A) of this section. A wireless provider or utility that self-insures is not required, to the extent of such self-insurance, to comply with the requirement for the naming of additional insureds under subsection (A) of this section, or the requirements of subsections (B), (C) and (D) of this section. A wireless provider or utility that elects to self-insure shall provide to the Village evidence sufficient to demonstrate its financial ability to self-insure the insurance coverage and limit requirements required under subsection (A) of this section, such as evidence that the wireless provider or utility is a "private self-insurer" under the Workers' Compensation Act.
(F) Effect Of Insurance And Self-Insurance On Wireless Provider Or Utility's Liability: The legal liability of the wireless provider or utility to the Village and any person for any of the matters that are the subject of the insurance policies or self- insurance required by this section shall not be limited by such insurance policies or self-insurance or by the recovery of any amounts thereunder.
(G) Insurance Companies: All insurance provided pursuant to this section shall be effected under valid and enforceable policies, issued by insurers legally able to conduct business with the licensee in the State of Illinois. All insurance carriers and surplus line carriers shall be rated "A-" or better and of a class size "X" or higher by A.M. Best Company. (Ord. 2018-4776, 7-23-2018; amd. Ord. 2021-4921, 9-20-2021)
