3.16.032. Nature of grant
A franchise shall not convey title, equitable or legal, in the rights-of-way. A franchise is only the right to occupy rights-of-way on a non-exclusive basis for the limited purposes and for the limited period stated in the franchise; the right may not be subdivided, assigned, or subleased, except as may be expressly provided in a franchise agreement. A franchise does not excuse a provider from obtaining appropriate access or pole attachment agreements before colocating its system on the property of others, including the City's property. This Section shall not be construed to prohibit a provider from leasing conduit to another provider, so long as the lessee has obtained a franchise.
