SECTION 3.0 AVISTA'S OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE 3.1 Compliance with Laws, Regulations, Codes and Standards In carrying out any authorized activities under the privileges granted by this Franchise, Avista shall meet accepted industry standards and codes and shall comply with all applicable laws, regulations and ordinances of any governmental entity with jurisdiction over Avista's Facilities in the Franchise Area. This includes all applicable, laws, regulations and ordinances existing as of the Effective Date or may be subsequently enacted by any governmental entity with jurisdiction over Avista's operations within the Franchise Area. The City shall have the right to make and enforce reasonable rules and regulations pertaining to the conduct of Avista's operations within the Franchise Area. Prior to the adoption of any new rule, procedure or policy, Avista shall be provided a written draft document for comment with a response period of not less than thirty (30) days. Service shall be supplied to the City and its inhabitants in accordance with Avista's rules and regulations and Tariffs currently or subsequently filed with and approved by the Commission. 3.2 Facility Location Information Avista shall provide the City, upon the City's reasonable request, Facility location information in electronic or hard copy showing the location of its Facilities at specific locations within the Franchised Area, to the extent such information is reasonably available. Avista does not warrant the accuracy of any such Facility location information provided and, to the extent the location of Facilities are shown, such Facilities may be shown in their approximate location. With respect to any excavations within the Franchise Area undertaken by or on behalf of Avista or the City, nothing stated in this Franchise is intended (nor shall be construed) to relieve either party of their respective obligations arising under the State one-call law with respect to determining the location of existing underground utility facilities in the vicinity of such excavations, prior to commencing work. 3.3 Vegetation Management -- Trimming/Removal of Trees State law requires electric utilities to comply with the National Electric Safety Code, including the guidance in the Code for the trimming or removal of vegetation interfering or potentially interfering with energized power lines. The right of Avista to maintain its Facilities and appurtenances under this Franchise shall accordingly include the right, as exercised in Avista's professional discretion, to utilize an integrated vegetation management program to minimize the likelihood that vegetation encroaching (either above or below the ground) on Avista's facilities can lead to power outages and other threats to public safety and welfare. Avista or its agents may, without recourse or payment of compensation, inhibit the growth of, prune, or remove any trees and vegetation which overhangs or encroaches upon its Facilities and/or electric transmission and distribution corridors within the Franchise Area, whether such trees or vegetation originate within or outside of the Right-of-way. Nothing contained in this Section shall prevent Avista, when necessary from pruning or removing any trees which overhang the Franchise Area and may interfere with Avista's Facilities. 3.4 Right of Excavation For the purpose of implementing the privileges granted under this Franchise, and after any required notification is made to the City, Avista is authorized to make any reasonably necessary excavations in, under and across the streets, alleys, roads, rights-of-way and public grounds within the Franchise Area. Such excavation shall be carried out with reasonable dispatch and with as little interference with or inconvenience to the public as may be feasible. Avista shall remove all debris stemming from excavation and construction. The right-of-way surface shall be restored by Avista after excavation, in accordance with applicable City and Avista specifications. Whenever Avista, its successors or assigns shall excavate in or obstruct any of the streets, alley or rights-of-way of the City for the purposes aforesaid, the street(s), alley(s), or right of way surface shall be reasonably restored, by Avista and to standards mutually agreed upon by the City and Avista, as soon as feasible after work is completed. 3.5 Emergency Work In the event of an emergency requiring immediate action by Avista to protect the public health, safety and welfare, or for the protection of its Facilities, or the property of the City or other persons in the Franchise Area, Avista may immediately proceed with excavation or other right-of-way work, with concurrent notice to the City to the extent possible. 3.6 Non-interference with Existing Facilities Avista shall have the discretion to determine the placement of its Facilities as may be necessary to provide safe and reliable Electric service within the Franchise Area, subject to the following non-interference requirements. All construction, installation, repair, relocation or maintenance of the Avista facilities, lines and appurtenances performed by Avista in, upon, over, under, along, and across the Franchise area subject to this Franchise shall be done in such a manner as not to interfere with the construction and maintenance of other utilities, public or private, drains, drainage ditches and structures, irrigation ditches and structures located therein, nor with the grading or improvement of such roads, rights-of-way or other public property, or property open to the public subject to this Franchise. 3.7 Notice of Intent to Cut If it should become necessary for Avista to cut or trim trees, bushes, foliage or such other vegetation written notification of intent to cut or trim vegetation shall be given to the City prior to said cutting and/or trimming; however, in the event of an emergency situation in which there is neither time nor the opportunity for Avista to notify the City and in which the public's health, safety and welfare are affected, Avista may cut and trim vegetation without prior notice to the City. Avista agrees to provide the City with written notice of the cutting and trimming of vegetation as soon as possible following said emergency cutting and/or trimming. 3.8 Supervision Whenever deemed necessary by the proper City authorities, the City shall have the right to appoint its engineer or a competent and experienced person to be superintendent and supervise the refilling or excavation made, and the expense of replacing or repairing of the portion of the public properties disturbed in the construction, installation, maintenance, repair or removal of Avista's Electric system or Facilities shall be at the expense of Avista. 3.9 Failure, Refusal to Restore Should Avista fail or refuse to restore, replace, repair or remove any of its Electric system or Facilities, or any City property, streets, roads, rights-of-way, other City property, or private property opened to the public to at least the same condition as existed immediately prior to excavation of such public and private properties within a reasonable period after completion of Avista's construction, laying, removing, installing, operating or maintenance the same may be restored by the City at the expense of Avista, upon presentation to Avista with reasonable documentation verifying the expenditures incurred. SECTION 4.0 RESERVATION OF CITY'S RIGHTS AND POWERS 4.1 Reservation of Right The City, in granting this Franchise, does not waive any rights which it may now have or may subsequently acquire with respect to road rights-of-way or other property of the City under this Franchise, and this Franchise shall not be construed to deprive the City of any such powers, rights or privileges which it now has or may hereafter acquire to regulate the use of and to control the City's roads, rights-of-way other public property, or private property opened to the public covered by this Franchise. Nothing in the terms of this Franchise shall be construed or deemed to prevent the City from exercising at any time any power of eminent domain granted to it under the laws of this State. 4.2 Necessary Construction/Maintenance by City The construction, operation and maintenance of Avista's Facilities authorized by this Franchise shall not preclude the City, its agents, its contractors, or sub-contractors from grading, excavating, or doing other necessary road work contiguous to Avista's Facilities, provided that Avista shall be given not less than ten (10) business days' notice of said work, and provided further that the City, its agents and contractors, shall be liable for any damages, including any consequential damages to third parties, caused by said work to any Facilities belonging to Avista. The prior notice requirement of this Article shall not apply with regard to normal street maintenance, including but not limited to necessary plowing and incidental construction or maintenance not otherwise affecting Avista's facilities. 4.3 Expansion of Avista's Facilities Facilities in the City's Franchise Area that are incidental to the Franchise Area, or that have been, or are at any future time acquired, newly constructed, leased, or utilized in any manner by Avista shall be subject to all provisions of this Franchise. 4.4 Change of Boundaries of the City Any subsequent additions or modifications of the boundaries of the City, whether by annexation, consolidation, or otherwise, shall be subject to the provisions of this Franchise as to all such areas. The City shall notify Avista of the scope of any change of boundaries not less than thirty (30) days prior to such change becoming effective or in accordance with applicable state laws. 4.5 Removal of Abandoned Facilities During the Term of this Franchise, or upon a revocation or non-renewal of this Franchise, the City may direct Avista to remove designated abandoned Facilities from the Franchise Area at its own expense and as soon as practicable, but only where such abandoned Facilities constitute a demonstrated threat to public health, safety and welfare. Avista shall not be required to remove, or pay for the removal of facilities it has previously abandoned to another franchisee, or utility under a joint use agreement, or person granted permission to access Avista's facilities, provided that Avista shall provide the City with notice of those facilities that it intends to abandon. 4.6 Vacation of Properties by City If, at any time, the City shall vacate any road, right-of-way or other public property which is subject to rights granted by this Franchise, such vacation shall be subject to the reservation of a perpetual easement to Avista for the purpose of operating, and maintaining Avista's Facilities on the affected property. The City shall, in its vacation procedure, reserve and grant said easement to Avista for Avista's Facilities and shall also expressly prohibit any use of the vacated properties which will interfere with Avista's full enjoyment and use of said easement. 4.7 Pole Attachments by City City shall be permitted, upon reasonable notice to Avista to attach its traffic control fire and police communications signal cables to Avista's poles in the Franchise Area, provided that the City signs and meets all conditions of a Joint Use Master License Agreement ("Joint Use Agreement") with Avista. Per the Joint Use Agreement, Avista will not charge a pole rental fee for City's non-revenue producing pole attachments that are dedicated for the public's benefit. All pole attachments by the City are at the City's own risk and must be attached in strict accordance with standard safety practices, codes and Avista specifications. If there is not sufficient space available on Avista's structures such structures may be changed, altered, or rearranged at the expense of the City so as to provide proper clearance and capacity for City facilities. Such City facilities shall be subject to removal or repositioning by Avista at the City's expense to the extent necessary for utility worker safety and the proper construction, maintenance, operation or repair of Avista's Facilities and appurtenances. City assumes all responsibility for the installation and maintenance of City's facilities installed on Avista's Facilities. SECTION 5.0 RELOCATION OF AVISTA'S FACILITIES 5.1 Relocation of Facilities Requested by City Upon written request by the City, Avista shall relocate its Facilities as necessary within the Franchise Area as specifically designated by the City for such purpose. The City shall provide Avista reasonable written notice of any intended or expected requirement or request to relocate Avista's Facilities, but not less than ninety (90) calendar days prior to any such relocation except, in cases of emergency or not otherwise reasonably foreseeable by the City. The City shall use reasonable efforts to cause any such relocation to be consistent with any applicable long-term development plan(s) of the City. In the event a relocation forces Avista off the City's existing public rights-of-way then the City shall make a reasonable effort to accommodate said relocation on alternative rights-of-way. If the City requires the subsequent relocation of any of Avista's Facilities within three (3) years from the date of relocation of such Facilities or installation of new Facilities, the City shall bear the entire cost of such subsequent relocation. Avista agrees to relocate all Facilities promptly within a reasonable time. Upon written notice from the City, the parties agree to meet and determine a reasonable relocation time, which shall not exceed the time normally needed for construction projects of the nature of the City's relocation request unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. Notwithstanding the above, Avista shall not be required to relocate facilities of other entities that were abandoned to another franchisee. Such relocation of these types of facilities shall be in accordance with Section 5.2 below. 5.2 Relocation of Facilities Requested by Third Parties City acknowledges that Avista is obligated to provide electric service and related line extension, relocation or conversion of Facilities for the benefit of its customers and to require compensation for such services on a non-preferential basis in accordance with applicable Tariffs. If Facilities are to be relocated at the request of or for the primary benefit of a third party, the City shall not require Avista to relocate its Facilities until such time as the third party has entered into an agreement to reimburse Avista for its reasonable costs of relocation. 5.3 Availability of Other Funds In the event federal, state or other funds are available in whole or in part for utility relocating purposes, the City agrees to use reasonable efforts to apply for such funds, provided such funds do not interfere with the City's right to obtain the same or similar funds, or otherwise create any expense or detriment to the City. The City may recover all costs, including internal costs, including but not limited to attorney's fees and costs associated with obtaining such funds. 5.4 Temporary Relocation of Facilities Requested by Third Parties At the request of any Person holding a valid permit or other written permission from the City, and upon reasonable advance notice and payment by the permit holder of Avista's expenses of such temporary change, Avista will temporarily raise, lower or remove its Facilities as necessary to accommodate a permittee of the City desiring to move over-sized structures or equipment along or across the Right-of-Way in the Franchise Area. 5.5 Conversion of Electric Distribution Facilities City, subject to applicable laws, rules, regulations and tariffs, may request that Avista convert from above ground to below ground wires, for the distribution of electricity underground after joint review with Avista and mutual agreement that such installation is feasible, practical and required for the public interest and safety. The incremental cost of such conversion of existing Facilities shall be borne and paid by the City or other party requesting the same, subject to law and such rules, regulations, and Tariffs of the Commission. It is expressly agreed by both Parties that this Section 5.5 does not apply to any conversion of transmission (69KV or above) infrastructure. SECTION 6.0 INDEMNITY 6.1 Indemnification of City Avista agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the City, its appointed and elected or appointed officials and employees, representatives or agents, from any and all liabilities, claims, causes of action, losses, injuries, damages and expenses, including costs and reasonable attorney's fees, that the City may sustain, incur, become liable for, or be required to pay, as a consequence of or arising from the negligent acts or omissions of Avista, its officers, employees or agents, contractors, and/or sub-contractors in connection with Avista's obligations under this Franchise; provided, however, that this indemnification provision shall not apply to the extent that said liabilities, claims, damages, injuries and/or losses were caused by or result from the negligence of the City, elected or appointed officials and/or employees, representatives or agents. 6.2 Indemnification of Avista To the extent permitted by law, City agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Avista, its officers and employees, representatives and agents from any and all liabilities, claims, causes of action, losses, injuries, damages and expenses, including costs and reasonable attorney's fees, that Avista may sustain, incur, become liable for, or be required to pay, as a consequence of or arising from the negligent acts or omissions of the City, its appointed and elected officials and employees or agents, contractors, and/or sub-contractors in connection with City's obligations under this Franchise; provided, however, that this indemnification provision shall not apply to the extent that said liabilities, claims, damages, injuries, and/or losses and so forth were caused by or result from the negligence of Avista, its officers, and/or employees, representatives, or agents. SECTION 7.0 FRANCHISE DISPUTE RESOLUTION 7.1 Non-waiver Failure of a Party to declare any breach or default of this Franchise immediately upon the occurrence thereof, or delay in taking any action in connection therewith, shall not waive such breach or default, but the Party shall have the right to declare any such breach or default at any time. Failure of a Party to declare one breach or default does not act as a waiver of the Party's right to declare another breach or default. In addition, the pursuit of any right or remedy by the City shall not prevent the City from thereafter declaring a revocation and forfeiture for breach of the conditions of the Franchise and terminating this Franchise. 7.2 Dispute Resolution by the Parties Disputes regarding the interpretation or execution of the terms of this Franchise that cannot be resolved by department counterparts representing the Parties, shall be submitted to the City's Attorney and an attorney representing Avista for resolution. If a mutually satisfactory or timely resolution cannot then be reached by the above process, prior to resorting to a court of competent jurisdiction, the Parties shall submit the dispute to a non-binding alternate dispute resolution process agreed to by the Parties. Costs of said dispute resolution process shall be divided equally among the participating parties, with each party paying their own attorney's fees and costs incurred. 7.3 Right of Enforcement No provision of this Franchise shall be deemed to bar the right of the City or Avista to seek judicial relief from a violation of any provision of the Franchise to recover monetary damages for such violations by the other party or to seek enforcement of the other Party's obligations under this Franchise by means of specific performance, injunctive relief or any other remedy at law or in equity pursuant to Section 7.4. Any litigation between the City and Avista arising under or regarding this Franchise shall occur, if in the state court in Shoshone County, in a court of competent jurisdiction, and if in the federal courts, in the United States District Court for the District of Idaho in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. 7.4 Attorneys' Fees and Costs Each Party shall pay for its own attorneys' fees and costs incurred in any dispute resolution process or legal action arising out of the existence of this Franchise. SECTION 8.0 GENERAL PROVISIONS 8.1 Forfeiture, Breach, Default If Avista shall knowingly or intentionally violate or fail to comply, breach or default in the terms or any of the provisions of this Franchise through willful failure to heed or comply with any of the terms, conditions or requirements set forth herein given to Avista under the provisions of this grant, then Avista shall forfeit all rights conferred hereunder and this Franchise shall be revoked or annulled by the City; provided, however, the City shall give (180) days, including weekends and holidays, prior written notice of its intention to revoke, annul or otherwise terminate this Franchise during which period Avista shall have a reasonable opportunity to remedy any breach, failure to comply or default. 8.2 Franchise as Contract, No Third Party Beneficiaries This Franchise is a contract between the Parties and binds and benefits the Parties and their respective successors and assigns.
