SECTION 2. That the authority granted hereby for the construction, installation, operation, and maintenance of said awnings shall not be construed as a surrender by The Metropolitan Government of its rights or power to pass resolutions or ordinances regulating the use of its streets or the right of The Metropolitan Government through its legislative body, in the interest of public necessity and convenience, to order the relocation of said facilities at the expense of Molyneux Entertainment Company.
SECTION 3. That plans and specifications for said awnings shall be submitted to the Director of Public Works of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County for approval before any work is begun; and all work, material, and other details of said installation shall be approved by the Director of Public Works prior to its use by Molyneux Entertainment Company.
SECTION 4. That construction and maintenance of said awnings shall be under the direction and supervision and control of the Director of Public Works, and its installation, when completed, must be approved by said Director.
SECTION 5. That this Resolution confers upon Molyneux Entertainment Company, a privilege and not a franchise, and the Mayor and the Metropolitan Council herein expressly reserve the right to repeal this Resolution, whenever, in their judgment, a repeal may be demanded by public welfare, and such repeal shall confer no liability on The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, its successors and assigns, by reason of said repeal. In the event of such repeal by said Metropolitan Government, Molyneux Entertainment Company, its successors and assigns, shall remove said awning at their own expense.
SECTION 6. Molyneux Entertainment Company shall pay all costs incident to the construction, installation, operation and maintenance of said awnings and shall save and hold The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County harmless from all suits, costs, claims, damages or judgments in any way connected with said construction, installation, operation and maintenance of said awnings and shall not claim, set up or plead, as a defense, in the event of joint liability, with or without suit, that it and the Metropolitan Government were joint wrongdoers. Molyneux Entertainment Company shall be responsible for the expense, if any, of repairing and returning the public sidewalk and/or alley to the condition in which it was prior to the installation of said awnings and for any street closure.
SECTION 7. That the authority granted to Molyneux Entertainment Company as herein described, shall not in any way interfere with the rights of The Metropolitan Government, its agents, servants, and/or contractors and utility companies, operating under franchise from The Metropolitan Government to enter, construct, operate, maintain, repair, rebuild, enlarge, and patrol its now existing or future utilities, including drainage facilities, together with their appurtenances, and to do any and all things necessary and incidental thereto.

made for actions or causes of action arising out of, or connected with, the
construction of installation of said awnings. Said certificate of insurance
shall be filed with the Metropolitan Clerk prior to the granting of a permit,
and the insurance required herein shall not be canceled without the insurance
company or companies first giving thirty (30) days written notice to The Metropolitan
