As fair and reasonable compensation for any franchise granted pursuant to this ordinance, a provider shall have the following obligations:
(1) Application fee. In order to offset the cost to the City to review an application for a franchise and in addition to all other fees, permits or charges, a provider shall pay to the City, at the time of application, Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) as a non-refundable application fee.
(2) Franchise fees. The franchise fee, if any, shall be set forth in the franchise agreement. The obligation to pay a franchise fee shall commence on the completion date. The franchise fee is offset by any business license fee or business license tax enacted by the City. Until such time as any telecommunication company, doing business in Layton City, shall enter into a franchise agreement, the company shall pay a fee of four percent (4%) of gross revenues, as defined herein, to the City. Upon the execution of a franchise agreement, the terms of that agreement shall govern the payment of the fee.
(3) Excavation permits. The provider shall also pay fees required for an excavation permit as provided in the City's Consolidated Fee Schedule, and shall comply with Layton City's excavation ordinance.
