A. Franchisee agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the county, its officers, boards, commissions, agents or employees, from and against any liability, judgment, decree or order, causes of action, damages or demands, specifically arising out of any negligent or wrongful acts or omissions of franchisee in connection with or under the franchise or the franchise resolution; provided, that neither franchisee nor the county shall make or enter into any compromise or settlement of any claim, demand, cause of action, suit or other proceeding, without first obtaining the written consent of the other, which consent shall not unreasonably be withheld. Nothing in this section shall be construed as indemnification of the county in violation of Cal. Civ. Code § 2782(b).
B. Notwithstanding the above, any franchisee electing to come under the terms of this chapter shall be bound by the indemnification provisions of this section together with any specific indemnification provisions contained in the resolution granting any such franchise; provided, however, that the specific indemnification provisions from any such earlier franchise will not be construed to limit the indemnification required under this chapter. (Ord. 747, eff. 8/17/89; Ord. 483, eff. 2/3/77)
