Section 12.02.0718 Insurance
  1. Permit applicants must furnish general liability insurance which meets the insurance requirements in a particular year to insure the applicant's operations to the extent they impinge upon or affect the public right of way and to protect the interests of the City. This shall not apply to public or private utilities certifying in writing that they are self-insured and pledging to fully defend and protect the City against any and all claims arising from or by reason of any negligent act or omission by the utility, in a like manner as an insurer.
  2. At the time of application, the applicant must furnish proof of such insurance, naming the City as an Additional Insured, and listed as such on the Certificate of Insurance (COI). The director shall require that such insurance be continuously maintained for a period of two (2) years from the date of project completion, and shall include thirty (30) days' notice of insurance cancellation or any material change in insurance timely provided to the director.
  3. The director may allow insurance coverage to be provided on an annual basis for master permit holders. The director may reduce or increase the amount of insurance coverage for smaller or larger jobs as the public interest and City Risk Department requires.
