(a) If the Director finds that the nature of the work may create a hazard to human life or endanger adjoining property or property at a higher or lower elevation, or any street or street improvement, or any other public property, the Director may, before issuing the permit, require the applicant for a permit to file a certificate of insurance.
(b) The certificate must show that the applicant is insured against claims for damages for personal injury and property damage in an amount not less than $25,000. Those damages include damage to the County by deposit or washing of material onto County streets or other public improvements, which may arise from or out of the performance of the work, whether the work is performed by the applicant, a subcontractor, or any person directly or indirectly employed by the applicant.
(c) The Director must set the amount of insurance according to the nature of the risks involved. Insurance must be written by a company licensed to do business in the state and approved by the County. Issuance of a permit, or compliance with this Chapter or any condition imposed by the Department, does not relieve any person from any responsibility for damage to persons or property otherwise imposed by law or impose any liability on the County for damages to persons or property.
