The poles shall be reasonably straight, and with the fixtures, so to be erected, shall be put in a safe and substantial manner, and shall be as neat in appearance as may be and located by the Street Committee or Street Commissioner under their direction and in such a manner as not to obstruct the streets and alleys or lanes in their ordinary and accustomed use, and shall be erected, maintained and cared for at the cost and charges of said grantee. The streets and alleys to be used for the line shall be designated by Council at the time of construction, provided the same shall not be an exclusive right to said company.
