§ 1-17. Prohibition of contracts providing indemnification.

Latest version.
  • (a) No contract entered into by or on behalf of the city shall contain any provision by which the city agrees to indemnify, any other party to the contract.

    (b) In the event that the city is unable to negotiate the removal of an indemnification provision from a proposed contract and the city finds it must or may only receive the product or service contracted for from the vendor which refuses or is otherwise unable to remove the proposed indemnification provision, the city commission may make a finding that this prohibition may be waived if it is deemed to be in the best interest of the public to acquire the product or service from the vendor from which the product or service is required.
