13.24.018 – Insurance

At all times during the period in which a wireless provider's facilities are located on City infrastructure, improvements or in the right-of-way, the wireless provider shall, at its own sole cost and expense, carry the following insurance coverages with limits in conformance with the City' s standard insurance requirements for all contractors:

  1. Property insurance for its property's replacement cost against all risks;
  1. Workers' Compensation insurance within statutory limits as required by law; and
  1. Commercial general liability insurance with respect to its activities on the City infrastructure, improvements or rights-of-way, including coverage for bodily injury and property damage.

The wireless provider shall include the City as an additional insured on the commercial general liability policy and shall provide certificates of insurance and proof of inclusion of the City in a commercial general liability policy to the City prior to the collocation of any small wireless facility, and shall keep updated certificates and proof of inclusion on file with the City at all times that the provider maintains small wireless facilities within the City.

  1. A wireless provider may self-insure all or a portion of the insurance coverage and limits required by the City. A wireless provider that self-insures is not required, to the extent of the self-insurance, to comply with the requirement that the City be named an additional insured. A wireless provider that self-insures shall provide to the City evidence sufficient to demonstrate its financial ability to self-insure the insurance limits required by the City.
