Except as prohibited by federal law, a franchisee shall remain subject to penalties and forfeitures under the city’s Ord. 1982-1, which originally granted the franchise, and its request for approval of a rate may be denied if it:
   (A)   Knowingly submits false or fraudulent information to the city in connection with any rate proceeding;
   (B)   Fails to comply with any lawful order or request of the city, including, but not limited to a request for information or an order setting rates; or
   (C)   Evades or attempts to evade federal or local rate regulation; provided that, filing for approval of a rate that is later determined to be unreasonable is not in and of itself an evasion of federal or local rate regulation.
(Prior Code KOC, § 610.4, passed 11-1-1993)
