17.01.148. Termination of Franchise
If this Franchise Agreement terminates for any reason, including but not limited to Grantee's becoming a provider of an Open Video System as defined by the Telecommunications Act of 1996, so long as Grantee maintains facilities in the public rights-of-ways, the City is entitled to collect from Grantee reasonable and non-discriminatory fees for use of such public rights-of-way. Such fees are to be comparable to those fees paid by other providers of services similar to those provided to Grantee within the City of Layton.
Grantee acknowledges that this Franchise provides Grantee with the use of valuable public rights-of-ways acquired and maintained by the City at great expense to its taxpayers and citizens and in recognition thereof that the grant to the Grantee of the use of those rights-of-ways is a valuable privilege and that such payments are made as a matter of contract.
