County Attorney Opinions and Advice of Counsel
Sec. 8A-17. Construction and use of rights-of-way.
   (a)   A franchisee must use, with the owner's permission, existing poles, conduits or other facilities whenever possible. Copies of agreements for use of poles, conduits or other facilities must be filed with the County as required by the franchise agreement.
   (b)   All transmission lines, equipment and structures must be installed and located to cause minimum interference with the rights and reasonable convenience of property owners.
   (c)   Suitable safety devices and practices as required by local, County, state and federal laws, regulations, and permits must be used during construction, maintenance, and repair of a cable system.
   (d)   A franchisee must remove, replace, or modify at its own expense any of its facilities in a public right-of-way when the County requires it to do so, to allow the County to change, maintain, repair or improve a public thoroughfare.
   (e)   The franchisee must put the cable underground at its expense on streets and roads where both electrical and telephone utility wiring are underground, and must move the cable underground after initial installation when electrical and telephone utility wiring are moved underground. The franchisee must put the cable underground between a street or road and a subscriber's residence if both electrical and telephone utility wiring are underground. A franchisee may install aerial cable if either electric or telephone utility wiring is aerial, except where a property owner or resident requests underground installation and agrees to pay the additional cost over aerial installation.
   (f)   A franchisee must obtain any required permits before starting construction work on public and private property and must restore the public and private property to their former condition after construction is completed. The County, or private property owner may, after prior notice to the franchisee, repair any damage done by the franchisee at the franchisee's expense if restoration is not satisfactorily performed within a reasonable time.
   (g)   Subject to the supervision and direction of the County, a franchisee may trim trees within public rights-of-way at its own expense as necessary to protect its wires and facilities. A franchisee may trim trees on private property with the consent of the property owner.
   (h)   At the request of any person holding a valid building moving permit and upon sufficient notice, the franchisee must temporarily raise, lower or cut its wires as necessary to facilitate a move. The direct expense of these temporary changes, including standby time, must be paid by the permit holder. The franchisee may require payment in advance. (FY 1991 L.M.C., ch. 3, § 1.)
