(A) In the event that the Village shall grant to a company a nonexclusive franchise to construct, operate, maintain, and reconstruct, a cable communications system within the franchise area, or a renewal of an existing franchise, said franchise or renewal shall constitute both a right and an obligation to provide the services of a cable communications system as required by the provisions of this chapter and the franchise agreement. The franchise agreement shall include those provisions of the company's application for franchise or application for renewal that are finally negotiated and accepted by the Village and the company.
(B) Any franchise granted under the terms and conditions contained herein shall be consistent with Federal and State laws and regulations.

(D) The company shall acknowledge that its rights under this chapter and the franchise are subject to the police power of the Village to adopt and enforce generally applicable ordinances necessary to the health, safety and welfare of the public; and the company shall agree to comply with all generally applicable laws and ordinances enacted by the Village pursuant to such power.
