3. Said obstructions shall be relocated without expense to the city to such locations as shall be specified by the city engineer or in the approved plans and profiles for the subdivision.

4. It shall be the responsibility of the subdivider to contact the utility companies, including cable television companies, or other owners of said obstructions to advise them of proposed improvements, and make direct arrangements for the relocation of and compensation for the cost of relocating any conflicting obstructions. Evidence of such completed arrangements shall be presented by the subdivider to the city engineer prior to the final approval of the subdivision plans by the city.

Said facilities, methods, or easements shall be subject to the approval of the city engineer.
