Section 9-310 No Impairment of Duty Under Franchise or Ordinance.

Nothing in this Article shall impair the right of the City to require the holder of a franchise or other person, required by ordinance or otherwise to pave a portion of street, to move any facility at his or her own expense or to improve a portion of street, to carry out his or her obligation without expense to the City. For this purpose, elimination of grade crossings is a public work and improvement. No duty, express or implied, of the holder of a franchise, contract or permit shall be impaired by amendments to this Chapter subsequent to the grant of franchise, contract or permit.
