                           INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT
1.       The undersigned


                               (Print: Applicant(s) / Landowner(s) names)

Applicant hereby agrees, as a condition of approval of


                (Permit # / license / other entitlement assigned by Planning Department)

to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the County of Calaveras (County) and its
agents, officers, and employees from any claim, action, or proceeding against the
County or its agents, officers, and employees arising from such approval. The obligation
of Applicant to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless arises only if the County notifies
Applicant of any claim, action, or proceeding within a reasonable time after the County
knows of the claim, action, or proceeding.
2.       Applicant shall, upon written request of the County, prepare a defense for the
County at Applicant’s sole expense. Alternatively, the County, at the County’s sole
discretion, may prepare its own defense, with Applicant paying the reasonable costs of
the County’s defense. Such costs shall include attorney fees and other related costs of
defense, including without limitation, travel, postage, photocopies, and County staff
costs.
3.       Applicant shall not be required to pay or perform any settlement unless the
settlement is approved in advance by the Applicant. The County must approve any
settlement affecting the rights and obligations of the County.
4.       In all cases, regardless of whether the County or the Applicant defends the
County, the Applicant shall indemnify the County for any judgment, order, or settlement
rendered as a result of any claim, action, or proceeding arising from the approval.
5.       At no time shall Applicant file any complaint, cross-complaint, or any offensive
pleadings in an action arising out the County’s approval without first obtaining the
County’s written approval.
6.       The Applicant shall pay to the County, within thirty calendar days upon written
demand, any amount owed to the County as a result of the County incurring costs or
expenses due to its defense under the terms of this Agreement.
7.       The obligations specified herein shall be binding on any successors or assigns of

                                                                                           Page 1 of 3
 Applicant.
 8.     This Agreement may be signed in counterpart but must be signed by all
 applicants and landowners.
