SweeAcceptance of Insurance Recovery

 

            Clerk of the Board Brenda Rigby Riehle requested a resolution accepting a check in the amount of $4,277.25 from NYMIR (New York Municipal Insurance Reciprocal) representing the settlement less a $500 deductible on a 2008 Chevy Impala (#2392) operated by Community Services that was damaged as the result of a motor vehicle accident on October 24, 2013. The funds should be appropriated to CS1930.429 (Risk Retention-Uninsured Property Loss) with a like sum placed in revenue account CS1930.2680.00 (Insurance Recovery). The fiscal impact of this transaction is the $500 deductible. (The other driver was found to be at fault so NYMIR will subrogate this claim, and the County should recover its deductible.) The request was approved on a motion by Legislator Healy, seconded by Legislator O’Grady, and carried. Prepare Resolution
