The obligation of complying with the requirements of this chapter rests upon the permittee, and no provision is intended to impose any special duty upon the City, or any of its officers, employees, or agents. Nothing contained in this chapter or any procedures adopted hereunder is intended to be or shall be construed to create a special relationship with any contractor, owner, permittee, or member of the public, or form the basis for liability on the part of the City, or its officers, employees, or agents, for any injury or damage resulting from the failure of the permittee to comply with the provisions hereof, or by reason or in consequence of any act or omission in connection with the implementation of enforcement of this chapter or any procedures adopted hereunder by the City, its officers, employees, or agents.
The City Engineer and other employees charged with the enforcement and administration of this chapter or agents of the City, acting for the City in good faith and without malice in the discharge of their duties, shall not thereby render themselves liable personally for any damages which may accrue to persons or property as a result of any act required or by reason of any act or omission in the discharge of such duties.
