The City shall also be entitled to charge an administrative fee, as determined
by City in its sole discretion, for substituting equivalent securities for
retention amounts. The City’s decisions with respect to the administration of

limited to, determinations of what securities are equivalent, the value of the
securities, the negotiability of the securities, the costs of administration
