(A)   A gas well permit may be transferred upon written request by the operator with the consent of the city:
      (1)   If the transferee agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of the current gas well permit and road repair agreement:
      (2)   If all information previously provided to the city as part of the current gas well permit application is updated to reflect any changes; and
      (3)   If the transferee provides the insurance and security required by this chapter.
   (B)   The insurance and security provided by the transferor shall be released if a copy of the written transfer is provided to the city. The transfer shall not relieve the transferor from any liability to the city arising out of any activities conducted prior to the transfer.
   (C)   Applications for the transfer of gas well permits shall be filed with the Planning Department. An administration fee shall be charged for each application, in the amount set forth in the approved development fee schedule.
   (D)   Within five days of the issuance of a transferred gas well permit, the new operator shall send notice, in a form acceptable to the city, to the occupants of all protected uses within 1,000 feet of a drill site or operation site of such a change. The notice shall include the new operator's name and emergency and non-emergency telephone numbers.
