20.28.030 Restriction of Use.

A. Whenever, in the opinion of the Commissioner In Charge of the Civic Stadium or of the Council of the City, any applicant or permittee for the use of the Civic Stadium is likely to or does advocate to any audience in the Stadium the overthrow of the United States government or the government of any state or subdivision thereof by force, and when such Commissioner shall file a report with the City Auditor to that effect, or when the Council shall make a finding to that effect, then the application shall be rejected or the permit of such permittee for the rental of said Stadium is hereby declared to be null and void. All permits for the rental of the Civic Stadium hereafter entered into shall be subject to the provisions of this Chapter, and this Chapter shall be a part of such permit of rental. In case of the annulment of any permit as herein provided, the amount of rental paid thereunder, less any expense actually incurred thereunder by the City, shall be refunded to the permittee.

B. Use of the Civic Stadium shall be deemed a privilege and not a right. Subject to the approval of the Commissioner In Charge, the Manager of the Civic Stadium may reject any application for rental of all or any portion of the Stadium whenever he finds that the particular event or performance may result in extraordinary risk of damage to the Stadium structure, furnishings, or facilities. If the Commissioner In Charge finds that such risk is of a character that special conditions may adequately protect the people of the City and the City itself from liability and loss, whether by penal bond, money deposit, special security measures at the expense of the applicant for rental, or other device, without other events and rentals, then the Commissioner In Charge may impose such special restrictions and requirements as he finds appropriate and adequate for such protection. The conditions of any such deposit or special requirements and the provisions of any such bond, shall be approved as to form by the City Attorney.
