(1) The permittee shall indemnify and save harmless the State of Connecticut, the Department of Transportation, its officers, agents and employees from all claims, suits, actions, damages, and costs of every name and description caused by or resulting from the permit, its use and/or maintenance by the permittee, its contractors and/or invitees, the effect of the permit on the operation, use and/or maintenance of the state highways(s); or the negligent performance and/or non-performance of the terms of the permit, and such indemnity shall not be limited by reason of any insurance coverage.
(2) Prior to the issuance of a permit, the permittee will be required to provide a Certificate of Insurance, Form CON 32, in such amounts as determined by the state which are applicable to the nature of work involved and as provided for in article 1.03.07 of "the State of Connecticut, Standard Specifications for Roads, Bridges and Incidental Construction," as revised.
(3) In cases where a joint permit is issued to a property owner and his/her contractor, a Certificate of Insurance which covers one or both of the permittees will be acceptable.
(4) Insurance coverage requirements may be waived in regard to permits issued to municipalities, public service companies (as defined by section 16-1 of The Connecticut General Statutes, as revised) and churches provided that these groups actually perform the work covered by the permit. However, when the work is to be performed by a contractor a Certificate of Insurance will be required.
