13.12.280   Rights reserved to the city.
   A.   There is reserved to the city every right and power which is required to be herein reserved or provided by any ordinance of the city, and the grantee, by acceptance of any franchise, agrees to be bound thereby and to comply with any action or requirements of the city in its exercise of such rights or power, heretofore or hereafter enacted or established.
   B.   Consistent with the rights and obligations set forth herein, and pursuant to its lawful exercise of the police power, there is reserved to the city the power to amend any section or part of this chapter so as to require additional or greater standards of construction, operation, maintenance, level of service, or otherwise, on the part of the grantee, when such action can be shown to be in the public's safety and/or welfare.
   C.   Neither the granting of any franchise nor any provision hereof shall constitute a waiver or bar to the exercise of any governmental right or power of the city, now existing or hereafter granted.
   D.   The council may do all things which are necessary and convenient in the exercise of its jurisdiction under this chapter and may determine any question of fact which may arise during the existence of any franchise granted hereunder; provided, however, that nothing herein shall limit any party's right to seek a judicial determination of any claim or controversy prior to or following any determination made by the city council. The city manager and/or his designee, is authorized and empowered to provide day-to-day administration and enforcement of the provisions of the franchise.
   E.   All notices which city may give to grantee or which grantee may give to city shall be given in writing and shall be delivered personally or by certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to grantee's most recent address on file with the city, and addressed to the city at the official city hall address. Such notices, so sent by mail, shall be deemed given five days after deposit in the United States Postal Service if so deposited in Los Angeles County; otherwise they shall be deemed given upon receipt.
