MGSA reserves the right at any time to make alterations, additions, repairs, deletions or improvements to all or any part of the MGSA Property for any purposes.

However, the MGSA's authority and ability to make changes to any MGSA Property shall not be impeded or delayed in any way by the presence of the City's Equipment. The making of any such alterations, additions, repairs, deletions, or improvements shall in no event entitle the City to any damages, relieve the City of its obligation to pay license fees or to perform each of its other covenants or obligations established in this Agreement, provided that the City can still operate the Equipment as intended in this Agreement. In the event of an emergency, the MGSA's work and needs shall take precedence over any operations of the City on MGSA's Property. 7. REMOVAL OF EQUIPMENT. Upon expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement, the City will, at its expense, remove all remaining Equipment from the MGSA property within ninety (90) days of the date of such termination.

The Parties hereto agree that (a) the City may terminate its right to operate its Equipment as it relates to any individual location upon thirty (30) days advance written notice to MSGA, and (b) MSGA may terminate the City's right to operate its Equipment as it relates to any individual location upon (i) the occurrence of a material default hereunder related to such individual location that constitutes a cause event or, (ii) a determination by MSGA in its reasonable discretion that public necessity requires that the applicable streetlight be removed or relocated. Any termination of this Agreement shall not relieve the City of any obligations, whether of indemnity or otherwise, which have accrued prior to such termination or completion of removal of the City's Equipment, whichever is later, or which arises out of an occurrence happening prior thereto, except to the extent arising from the negligence or willful misconduct of MSGA. In the event the City engages in any street repair work that necessitates the removal of a streetlight, MGSA agrees that the City may install new Equipment on any replacement light in accordance with all requirements of this Agreement. 14.1 Except as specifically set forth herein, MGSA and the City agree that neither Party shall terminate this Agreement in the event of an alleged breach nor default hereunder before the defaulting Party has been given written notice of and a reasonable time and opportunity to respond to and cure any such breach or default.
