2. I further agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the City and its officers, employees and

agents, from and against any and all claims, suits, actions, liability judgment and expenses that

connected in any way therewith. I will pay all costs incident to any claim, including, without

limitation, attorneys’ fees.
