Section 2. The authority granted hereby for the construction, installation, operation and maintenance of said aerial encroachment 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 Revolution Real Estate.
Section 3.

Section 4. Construction and maintenance of said aerial encroachment shall be under the direction, supervision and control of the Director of Public Works; and, its installation, when completed, must be approved by said Director.
Section 5. This Resolution confers upon Revolution Real Estate 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, its successors, or assigns by reason of said repeal. In the event of such repeal by the Metropolitan Government, Revolution Real Estate and its successors and assigns shall remove said aerial encroach at their expense and no expense to the Metropolitan Government.
Section 6. Revolution Real Estate shall pay all costs incident to the construction, installation, operation and maintenance of said aerial encroachment and shall save and hold the Metropolitan Government harmless from all suits, costs, claims, damages or judgments in any way connected with said construction, installation, operation and maintenance of said aerial encroachment 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.
