Title

A Resolution Of The City Commission Of The City Of Hollywood, Florida, Authorizing The City Manager Or Designee To Execute Indemnification Agreements Or “Hold Harmless” Agreements For Purposes Of Fire Rescue And Beach Safety Training.

 

 

Body

 

Staff Recommends: Approval of the Attached Resolution.

 

 

Explanation:

 

The Fire Rescue and Beach Safety Department often encounters property within the City of Hollywood, such as vacant office buildings or open land, which is privately owned, but would be of great value in training.

 

The owner(s) of these private parcels are often amenable to allowing the Fire Rescue and Beach Safety Department to conduct training on the owner’s property.

 

The owner(s) of the private parcels will often request the execution of a “hold harmless” or indemnification agreements, in exchange for allowing the Fire Rescue and Beach Safety Department to conduct its training on the property.

 

The act of indemnification is a power reserved to the City Commission, except to the extent that the Commission delegates that authority to others in specific circumstances.

 

Time is of the essence regarding these agreements, because the buildings and property are often observed shortly before the property will be demolished, occupied, physically altered, or sold.
