Except as otherwise provided in Paragraph B., CONTRACTOR shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, indemnify, release, defend with counsel approved by CITY, and hold harmless CITY, its officers, agents, employees and volunteers (collectively, the "City Indemnitees"), from and against any claim, demand, suit, judgment, loss, liability or expense of any kind, including but not limited to attorney's fees, expert fees and all other costs and fees of litigation, (collectively "CLAIMS"), arising out of CONTRACTOR'S performance of its obligations or conduct of its operations under this Agreement.

In no event shall the cost to defend charged to the design professional exceed the design professional's proportionate percentage of fault. C.

The goal of this program is to collect information from business owners to help identify any obstacles or common themes for businesses operating in the city and help build awareness of any issues that may impact economic vitality in San Rafael. The data collected from the Interviews provides insight into the challenges that businesses face and allows the Chamber and the City to discuss these issues, make recommendations and work collaboratively to create possible solutions. A copy of all data will be made available to the Economic Development Department and to the City Manager. We are pleased to continue the work of the Economic Vitality Outreach Program in 2017-2018 by contracting with the City again to survey companies and perform business retention and expansion interviews that will help to determine the obstacles that exist to businesses' ability to remain and grow in Marin County and what may be within the powers of the City to assist in retention and job growth. As outlined in the following scope, the Chamber will provide services for this program thru September 2018. We look forward to working with you on this program and will provide you periodic updates through our Economic Vitality Committee. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
