THE CITY OF RICHMOND HEREBY ORDAINS:

§ 1.                     That sections 28-837, 28-857, and 28-862 of the Code of the City of Richmond (2015) be and are hereby amended and reordained as follows:

Sec. 28-837.  Records of facilities.

The Director shall keep on file suitable records showing electric wiring, poles, streetlights and other facilities owned, rented, maintained or used by the electric utility, including, but not limited to, showing of privately-owned facilities sited on the electric utility’s poles and other facilities.

Sec. 28-857. Authority required for work.

Persons, except City departments, and except as otherwise provided in Article VII, Division 3 of this chapter, desiring to install, construct, maintain, alter or use poles, wires, cables, conduits, manholes, transformers or any appurtenances using electricity in, over or under the streets of the City shall first obtain authority to do so from the City Council.

Sec. 28-862.  Joint use; board of arbitrators.

                     (a)                        Persons whom the City Council or the Director has authorized to install, construct, maintain, alter or use poles, wires, cables, conduits, manholes, transformers or any appurtenances using electricity in, over or under the City streets should, before applying for a permit to erect poles or install conduits, first determine the advisability of using existing poles or conduits. Persons may apply to the owners of existing poles and conduits in the streets for permission to install their wires or cables on the existing poles or conduits, and the owners of the poles and conduits shall grant this permission.

                                          (b)                       The terms and conditions of such joint use may be agreed upon by the parties in interest. If the parties cannot agree upon satisfactory terms and conditions, the Director may require the owner of the poles and conduits to permit the desired joint use upon terms to be fixed by a Board of Arbitration, selected as follows: one person to be appointed by each of the parties in interest and the third to be selected by those appointees. If either appointment is not made within 15 days after notice from the Director or the third arbitrator is not selected within 30 days, the Director shall select disinterested persons to complete the Board of Arbitration. The decision of the majority of the Board of Arbitrators shall be final and binding upon the owner of the poles or conduits and the party desiring joint use. The Director shall have the authority to require the owner of the poles or conduits to allow the applicant for joint use to enter upon and use the equipment under such conditions as the Director may prescribe as soon as the applicant shall have appointed an arbitrator, but the person so entering shall do so under a contract and bond that such person will abide by and conform to the terms and conditions determined upon by the arbitrators. All expenses incidental to arbitration shall be divided equally between the parties in interest.

                     (c)                        The Director shall also have authority to require the owner or applicant to furnish and afford such protection to the property of the other as the Director may deem proper or necessary in order to allow the wires of each party to perform the purposes or functions for which they were intended.

§ 2.                     That Chapter 28, Article VII of the Code of the City of Richmond (2015) be and is hereby amended and reordained by adding therein a new division numbered 3, consisting of sections numbered 28-876 through 28-882 as follows:
