Structure be installed in that area for purposes of constructing the Facilities.

Before any new Support Structure is permitted, each of the following must

occur:

a.The Applicant must have provided the City written evidence that no

practical colocation opportunity exists. This evidence shall include,

but not be limited to, affidavits, correspondence, or other written

City Engineer’s recommendation is made.

  1. If a Facility is attached to a utility pole or other Support Structure in the

Right-Of-Way, no antenna or other part of the Facility shall extend no more

than five (5) feet above the height of that structure; provided that, in the event

that the Applicant demonstrates that National Electric Safety Code regulations

or other factors create an undue hardship in complying with this height

requirement, the City Engineer may permit a Facility to extend up to ten (10)

feet above the height of such Support Structure;

  1. The Accessory Equipment shall, if reasonably possible, be placed at least ten

(10) feet above the ground;

  1. The color of Antenna and Accessory Equipment shall be compatible with that

of the Support Structure;

  1. The Facility (including the Accessory Equipment) shall not be illuminated;
  2. Whether the proposed installation could cause harm to the public or pose any

undue risk to public safety;

  1. Whether the proposed installation may interfere with vehicular traffic, passage

of pedestrians, or other use of the Right-Of-Way by the public; and

  1. If the proposed installation will disturb conditions on the Right-Of-Way,

whether the Applicant can demonstrate its ability and financial resources to

restore the subject area to its pre-existing condition following installation.

  1. Application Process.
  2. At a minimum, each application for a permit shall contain all of the following:

a.Engineering drawings depicting the type of Facilities, Support

associated Accessory Equipment will be attached to a Support

  1. Map(s) designating with specificity the location(s) of the requested

Facilities;

c.If the Facilities will be located on a Support Structure on the Right-OfWay that is owned by any entity other than the City or the Applicant, a

Facilities to be attached thereto or agrees in principle to authorize that

attachment, provided that, if a representation is made to the City that

the attachment has been authorized in principle by the owner of the

Support Structure but the Applicant subsequently fails to furnish the

City documentation that finalizes any such agreement, the City may

refuse to issue the requested permit until that documentation is

provided, or, if the City issues the requested permit before receiving

such final documentation, the subject permit may be revoked and any

license to use that part of the Right-Of-Way be rescinded.

  1. If the Applicant requests permission to place Facilities on a new

Support Structure, the substantiation therefor required by Section 2,

Paragraph B-7 of this ordinance.

e.An application shall not be deemed complete until the Applicant has

submitted all documents, information, forms and fees specifically

enumerated in this Ordinance that pertain to the location, construction,

or configuration of the Facilities or Support Structures at the requested

location(s). Within thirty (30) calendar days after an application for

permit is submitted, the City shall notify the Applicant in writing if

any additional information is needed to complete that application or

supplemental information is required to process the request. If the

City does not notify the Applicant in writing that the application is

incomplete within thirty (30) days following its receipt, the application

is deemed complete.

  1. Time for Processing Application. Unless another date is specified in a written

agreement between the City and the Applicant, the City will have the

following time periods to make its final decision to approve or disapprove an

application for a permit contemplated in this ordinance and advise the

Applicant in writing of that determination:

a.Sixty (60) calendar days from the date an application for a permit is

filed with respect to a request to co-locate Facilities on an existing

Support Structure; and

  1. Ninety (90) calendar days from the date an application for a permit

is filed with respect to a request to attach Facilities to a new Support

Structure.

To the extent additional information is required to complete the

application after it is filed, the applicable calendar day review period set

forth in this subsection shall be tolled and not continue to run until the

Applicant has provided any missing or requested supplemental

information; provided that tolling shall not occur if the City does not

advise the Applicant in writing of the incompleteness of a submitted

application within thirty (30) days after that submission.

  1. Reconsideration/Appeal. Any Applicant that desires reconsideration of an

administrative diction by the City Engineer to deny a request for a permit to

place a Facility or Support Structure on the Right-Of-Way may seek review,

modification or reversal of that decision by the City Council by submitting a

request for reconsideration with the City Clerk within twenty-one (21)

calendar days following the City Engineer’s decision. That request for

reconsideration will be considered by the City Council at a regular Council

meeting that will be conducted as soon as practical after the request for

reconsideration is made. If no request of reconsideration is submitted, the

decision of the City Engineer will be final. Additionally, the Applicant, within

thirty (30) days following a decision by the City Council to deny either a) a

request for reconsideration or b) a decision by City Council to not approve the

placement of a new Support Structure on the Right-of-Way, may appeal either

of those decisions by the City Council to the Sixteenth Circuit Court of

Etowah County, Alabama, as applicable. If no appeal of those decisions of

the City Council is made, those will be deemed final.

  1. Additional Requirements. Any Provider or Applicant to whom a permit is issued and

that places Facilities and associated Support Structures on the Right-Of-Way also

shall comply with the following requirements as long as those Facilities and Support

Structures are on or under the Right-of-Way:

  1. Prior to installing the Facilities or Support Structures, the Applicant shall

provide the City a certificate(s) of insurance evidencing that it has obtained

and will maintain the following types of insurance in connection with its

operations on or use of the Right-Of-Way:

a.General Liability Coverage insuring the risk of claims for damages to

persons or property arising from or related to the installation,

construction, maintenance, operation or any use of the Facility or

Support Structure placed on or along the Right-of-Way by the

Applicant (or any of their contractors) with minimum limits of

$1,000,000 per occurrence; and

  1. Workers Compensation Insurance as required by statute.

The General Liability coverage shall list the City of Gadsden, Alabama as an

additional insured, and may be provided through a combination of a primary

who are reasonably acceptable to the City and authorized to transact business

in the State of Alabama. On an annual basis following initial installation, the

Applicant also shall furnish the City a Certificate indicating that the abovenoted coverage remains and will remain in effect. The City shall allow the

applicant to provide a certificate of self-insurance in lieu of these provisions

and must affirm adequate financial security on the part of the self-insured

entity.

  1. All Facilities and associated Support Structures shall be installed, erected,

maintained and operated in compliance with applicable federal and state laws

and regulations, including, but not limited to, regulations of the FCC.

  1. Following the installation of any Facilities and associated Support Structures,

the Provider or Applicant, upon reasonable request and for good cause, shall

furnish the City Engineer a written certification from a licensed professional

engineer in the State of Alabama stating that those Structures have been

inspected and are being maintained, operated and used in compliance with all

applicable laws and regulations, including those of the FCC that pertain to the

transmission of wireless communication signals. For purposes of this

provision, “good cause” shall mean circumstances have arisen that indicate

functioning in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, or otherwise

pose a hazard to the public. If those Support Structures should fail at any time

to comply with applicable laws and regulation, the Provider or Applicant, at

either of their expense, shall cause those Structures to be brought into

compliance with said laws and regulations within fifteen (15) days of the date

of any written notice to them from the City Engineer of non-compliance, or

cease all personal wireless service operations related to those Structures until

the Applicant or Provider comes into full compliance with said laws and

regulations.

  1. The Facilities and associated Support Structures must at all times be

maintained in good and safe condition. On no more frequent than a triennial

basis, the City Engineer may request that the Provider or Applicant, at either

of their expense, furnish certification from a professional engineer who is

licensed in the State of Alabama that the Facilities and Support Structures are

in sound condition. Should that engineer deem those Structures unsound, the

Provider or Applicant shall furnish to the City Engineer a plan to remedy any

unsafe conditions or structural defect(s) and take that remedial action at the

Provider or Applicant’s expense.

  1. Each Applicant or Provider that applies for a permit to place Facilities

(including the Accessory Equipment) and Support Structures on the Right-OfWay and installs and utilizes those Structures shall defend, indemnify and

hold the City and its employees or officials, harmless from all demands,

losses, expenses (including attorney’s fees and court costs), claims for

personal injury or property damage, judgments or liabilities of any type that

may be asserted or claimed against the City (or its employees or officials) by

any third person, firm or entity that arise out of or relate in any manner to the

following: 1) the installation, construction, maintenance, use or operation of

the permitted Facilities, Accessory Equipment or any Support Structure on or

about the Right-Of-Way; and 2) the failure of the Provider or Applicant to

perform any of their respective responsibilities, obligations, and permit

requirements in this ordinance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Provider or

Applicant shall not be obligated to indemnity the City for claims resulting

from the sole negligence or willful acts of the City (or its representatives).

  1. Permit and License Fees. The Applicant for a permit to place Facilities and

associated Support Structures on the Right-of-Way shall pay the following types of

fees:

  1. An application and review fee to be paid when an application is submitted

for (i) Permits for the placement of Communications Facilities that are not

poles, $500 for up to five Communications Facilities plus $100 for each

additional Communications Facility included in the permit; and (ii) for

Permits for the placement of Communications Facilities that are poles,

$1,000.

  1. An annual license fee shall be as follows: (i) for new Provider poles or

ground mountings and any Communications Facilities initially installed

thereon by Provider, $270 per site, per year, per Permit; (ii) for

attachments of Communications Facilities to third-party poles, $270.00

per site, per year, per Permit; (iii) and for Communications Facilities

installed on any city-owned structure, $270.00 per site, per year, per

permit.

  1. Removal, Relocation or Modification of Small Wireless Facility in the Right-of-Way.
  2. Ninety (90) Day Notice to Remove, Relocate or Modify. Whenever the City

reasonably determines that the relocation is needed as described below, then

within ninety (90) days following written notice from the City, the Applicant

shall, at its own expense, protect, support, temporarily or permanently

disconnect, remove, relocate, change or alter the position of any small

wireless Facilities within the Rights-Of-Way whenever the City has

determined that such removal, relocation, change or alteration, is reasonably

necessary for (excluding beautification-only projects), as follows:

a.the construction, repair, maintenance, or installation of any City

improvement in or upon, or the operations of the City in or upon, the

Rights-Of-Way; and/or

  1. if required for the construction, completion, repair, relocation, or

maintenance of a City improvement or project in or upon, or the

operations of the City in or upon, the Rights-Of-Way; and/or

c.because the small cell Facility or its related equipment is interfering

with or adversely affecting proper operation of any City-owned light

poles, traffic signals, or other equipment in the Public Way; and/or

  1. to protect or preserve the public health or safety.

e.In any such case, the City shall use its best efforts to afford Applicant

a reasonably equivalent alternate location. If Applicant shall fail to

relocate any Equipment as requested by the City within a reasonable

time under the circumstances in accordance with the foregoing

provision, the City shall be entitled to relocate the Equipment at

Applicant’s sole cost and expense, without further notice to Applicant.

If, at any time during the Term for which the permit is granted, the

City determines that utility Facilities will be placed underground in an

area including any City-owned Facilities upon which Applicant has

installed Equipment, Applicant and the City will cooperate in good

faith on the design and installation, at Applicant’s costs, of suitable

replacement of Applicant’s Facilities, including decorative streetlight

poles; and Applicant agrees that if reasonably required by the City

Engineer or his designee in order to ensure appropriately even and

level lighting within a previously unlighted area, additional Facilities,

which may include decorative streetlight poles beyond or more

numerous than those required for Applicant’s Facilities, shall be

installed. Applicant agrees that decorative streetlight poles may be

required by the City in the future in the place of initially-installed

standard-design streetlight poles, in which replacement of the

Applicant’s Facilities and Equipment on decorative streetlights that

were initially installed standard-design streetlight poles shall be solely

at Applicant’s cost. Further, Applicant agrees that in such instances

and at such time as replacement poles are installed, the City may

reasonably require that the configuration and/or location of ground

furniture (which references any equipment on the ground that is

needed to supply power or backhaul services to the small cell Facility)

and/or pole-mounted equipment or equipment cages be changed (such

as changing from pole-mounted equipment cages to ground furniture),

in the discretion of the City.

  1. Emergency Removal or Relocation of Facilities. The City retains the Right

and privilege to cut or move any small wireless Facility or related structure

located within the Rights-of-Way of the City, as the City may determine to be

necessary, appropriate or useful in response to any public health or safety

emergency. If circumstances permit, the City shall notify the Applicant and

provide the Applicant an opportunity to move its own Facilities, if possible,

prior to cutting electrical service or removing a Facility and shall notify the

wireless Provider after cutting or removing a small wireless Facility.

Section 3. Placement of Small Cell Technology Facilities on Private Property. A. A Provider or Applicant must obtain a permit from the City before placing, installing,

or constructing any Small Cell Technology Facility (and associated Accessory

Equipment) on any Support Structure that is located on private property, or

substantially modifying the position or characteristics of any such existing Facility

thereon.

  1. The City Engineer will review and administratively process any request for a permit

to determine whether, in the exercise of the City Engineer’s reasonable discretion, it

should be issued for the location and in the manner requested. In this process, the

burden is on the Applicant to demonstrate that the placement of the proposed Small

Cell Technology Facility and associated Accessory Equipment or Support Structure

on private property is the minimal physical installation which will achieve the

technological goal of enhancing the provision of personal wireless services. Except as

set forth in this section, this permitting process will not require the approval of any

City Board or City official other than the City Engineer. The factors, guidelines and

requirements that the City Engineer may consider and will apply when determining

whether to issue a permit for placement of Facilities and any associated Accessory

Equipment or Support Structure on private property include, but are not limited to,

the following:

  1. The factors and requirements set forth in Section 2 of this Ordinance Number

_______;

  1. Colocation. The guidelines in Section 2 of this Ordinance Number ______ to

utilize existing poles and Support Structures for the placement of Facilities

and Accessory Equipment are also applicable when considering whether to

permit the installation of those Facilities and Support Structures on private

property, provided that City Council approval is not required before a permit

is issued to place a new pole or other Support Structure on private property if

that action is appropriate.

  1. The Provider or Applicant shall use Stealth Technology when installing the

Facilities and associated Accessory Equipment on any building or accessory

to that building that is located on private property. Further, Stealth

Technology should be used when placing Facilities on other types of Support

Structures on private property unless the Applicant can reasonably

demonstrate that, given the nature of the requested application, the use of such

Technology is (a) unnecessary; or (b) impractical.

  1. If Facilities are placed on an existing or new building or accessory to that

building, the following dimensional regulations shall apply:

a.Façade-mounted antennas shall not extend above the face of any wall

or exterior surface of the building.

  1. Roof-mounted antennas and Accessory Equipment may be

permitted on buildings in accordance with the following table:

Height of Building Maximum Height of Facility Required Setback from

above Highest Point of Roof Edge of Roof of Building

Up to 15 feet 8 feet, including antenna 1 foot for every foot of

height of equipment

15-35 feet 10 feet, including antenna 1 foot for every foot of

height of equipment

More than 35 feet 12 feet, including antenna 1 foot for every foot of

height of equipment

c.The antenna component of the Facilities shall be limited to a

maximum height of three (3) feet and a maximum width of two (2)

feet; provided that authorization to install antenna up to six (6) feet in

height may be permitted if a showing of the technological need for

such equipment is made and other requirements of this Section are

met.

  1. Accessory Equipment must be located in an equipment cabinet,

equipment room in an existing building or in an unmanned equipment

building. If the equipment building is freestanding, it shall conform to

the Gadsden Municipal Code with respect to building setbacks, that

building shall not exceed 400 square feet, and its overall height shall

be limited to 15 feet (if located on the ground) measured from the

finished grade. Further, if an equipment building or cabinet is located

in a residential zone, or the nearest adjoining property is in a

residential zone, that building or cabinet shall be surrounded by

landscaping to provide a screen of the same height as the building or

cabinet.

  1. Application Process. Except as provided in paragraphs a and b immediately

below, the same application process that is set forth in Section 2 (c) will be

utilized when processing any request for a permit to place Facilities or

Support Structures on private property, except that:

a.City Council approval to install a new Support Structure on private

property is not a condition for a permit to place Facilities thereon; and

  1. If the Facilities are located on private property that is not owned

or exclusively used by the Applicant, instead of providing the

documentation contemplated in Section 2(c)(1)(c), the Applicant shall

present a license, lease, agreement or other documentation indicating

that owner of said property authorizes the Applicant the Rights to

place the Facilities thereon and access thereto, or that such owner

agrees in principle to grant the Applicant those Rights; provided that,

if a representation is made to the City that the owner of private

property has agreed in principle to grant those Rights but the Applicant

subsequently fails to furnish the City documentation that finalizes any

such agreement, the City may refuse to issue the requested permit until

the documentation is provided, or, if the City issues the requested

permit before receiving such final documentation, the subject permit

and license may be revoked.

  1. Additional Requirements. Any Provider or Applicant to whom a permit is

issued and that places Facilities and associated Support Structures on private

property also shall comply with the following requirements as long as those

Facilities and Support Structures are located thereon:

a.All Facilities and Support Structures shall be installed, erected, and

maintained in compliance with applicable federal and state laws and

regulations, including, but not limited to, regulations of the FCC.

  1. At least triennially following the installation of the Facilities or

associated Support Structures, upon reasonable request and for good

cause, the Applicant shall furnish the City Engineer a written

certification from a professional engineer licensed in the State of

Alabama indicating that those Structures have been inspected and are

being maintained, operated and used in compliance with all applicable

laws and regulations, including those of the FCC that pertain to the

transmission of wireless communication signals. For purposes of this

provision, “good cause” shall mean circumstances have arisen that

indicate the Facilities and associated Support Structures have been

damaged, are not functioning in compliance with applicable laws and

regulations, or otherwise pose a hazard to the public. If those

Structures fail at any time to comply with said laws and regulations,

the Provider or Applicant shall cause those Structures to be brought

into compliance with said laws and regulations within fifteen (15) days

of the date of any written notice to either of them of such noncompliance, or cease all personal wireless communications operations

related to those Structures until the Provider or Applicant comes into

full compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

c.The Facilities and associated Support Structures on private property

must at all times be maintained in good and safe condition.

  1. Permit and License Fees. The Provider or Applicant for a permit to place Facilities

and associated Support Structures on private property shall pay the following types of

fees that are enumerated in the City’s officially adopted Fee Structure Ordinance as

amended:

  1. a permit application and review fee of $200.00 to be paid when an application

is submitted; and,

  1. a permit issuance fee of $100.00 per each Support Structure on private

property contemplated for attachment.

Section 4. Abandonment of Facilities on Right-of-Way. If a Provider or Applicant abandons any Facility (including the Accessory Equipment) or

an associated Support Structure (collectively “Facilities” for purposes of this Section) that is

located on the Right-Of-Way, the following rights and obligations shall exist. The City may

require the Provider or Applicant, at their expense, to remove and reclaim the abandoned

Facilities within sixty (60) days from the date of written notice of Abandonment given by the

City to them and to reasonably restore the condition of the property at which the Facilities are

located to that existing before they were installed. If the Provider or Applicant fails to remove

and reclaim its abandoned Facilities within such 60-day period and the Facilities are located on

the Right-Of-Way, the City shall have the rights to:

  1. remove them and charge its expense of any such removal operation to the account

of the Provider or Applicant,

  1. purchase all abandoned Facilities at the subject location from the Provider or

Applicant in consideration for $1.00,

  1. at the City’s discretion, either resell the abandoned Facilities to a third party or

dispose and salvage them; provided that the proceeds of any resale of abandoned

Facilities by the City to a third party shall be credited to the account of the

Applicant or Provider that used those Facilities before the abandonment, and

  1. charge any expense incurred by the City to restore the Right-of-Way to the

account of the Provider or Applicant.

Section 5. Colocation. Unless otherwise prohibited by Federal law, to promote the public interest that is served

by co-locating Facilities and associated Accessory Equipment on existing Support Structures and

thereby mitigating the installation of additional Support Structures throughout the City, no

person or entity (including any Provider, Applicant, utility, or franchisee) that utilizes an existing

Support Structure that is located on Right-of-Way in the City and has space available thereon

may deny a Provider or Applicant the Right to use or access an existing Support Structure for

purposes of attaching Facilities permitted by this ordinance without sound operational,

technological or other good reason.

Section 6. Non-Applicability. The placement of an antenna(s), Facilities or equipment related to the following types of

wireless communication services are exempt from regulation under this ordinance:

  1. Amateur radio service that is licensed by the FCC if the Facilities related thereto are

not used or licensed for any commercial purpose; and

  1. Facilities used by any federal, state or local government or agency to provide safety

or emergency services.

Section 7. Repealer. All Ordinances or parts of ordinances heretofore adopted by the City Council of the City

of Gadsden, Alabama that are inconsistent with the provisions of this Ordinance are hereby

expressly repealed.

Section 8. Severability.

If any part, section or subdivision of this ordinance shall be held unconstitutional or

invalid for any reason, such holding shall not be construed to invalidate or impair the remainder

of this ordinance, which shall continue in full force and effect notwithstanding such holding.

Section 9. Effective Date. This ordinance shall become effective immediately upon adoption and

posting/publication as provided by Alabama law.

Done, Ordered, Approved and Adopted this the 7th day of April, 2020.
