WHEREAS, pursuant to the provisions of LSA-R.S.33:4401, LSA-RS. 45:1361 et seq, this municipality’s police powers, and in order to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public, the Town of Lake (herein referred to as “the Town”) recognizes its right, duty, and obligation to regulate and maintain the integrity and safety of the Town’s property and rights-of-way.

WHEREAS, the Town makes and adopts the following findings and purposes:

(1) The Town recognizes that it holds its property and the rights-of-way within its geographical boundaries as an asset in trust for its citizens. The Town and other public entities have invested millions of dollars in public funds to acquire, build, and maintain the rights-of-way. It also recognizes thatsome persons, by placing their equipment in the rights-of-way and charging the citizens of the Town for goods and services delivered thereby, are profiting from their use of this property held by the Town for the public good;

(2) The Town’s rights-of-way are owned or held by the Town primarily for the purpose of pedestrian and vehicular passage and for the Town’s provision of essential public safety service’s including police, fire, and emergency medical response services; and public health services, including sanitary sewer, water, and storm drainage services (together, “Public Uses”);

In LSA-R.S. 45:1374, the legislature reserved to local government certain authority to regulate the holder of a state-issued certificate of franchise authority including the Town’s lawful exercise of its police powers; and

(8) In order for the Town to properly protect the health, safety and welfare of its citizens, to enhance the Public Uses, and manage and maintain its property, it is appropriate and necessary that the Town obtain and maintain current, accurate information concerning the location, constructions, installation and maintenance of structures, facilities, and equipment occupying Town Property for Business Operations (“System”).
