Agenda Title:

Approval of 2021-2022 property insurance renewal with a total premium of $464,831

Staff recommends approval of Midwest Public Risk (MPR) proposal to provide the City insurance for non-utility property, Contractors Equipment, and Auto Physical Damage.


Lockton Companies, Inc., who has been the City’s insurance broker since 2005, submitted the renewal proposal. The proposal was reviewed and recommended for approval by Charlesworth Consulting, LLC, the City’s risk management consultants.


Executive Summary:

The 2021-2022 renewal proposal is the result of an extensive effort by Lockton, Charlesworth, and staff to maintain suitable coverage at a reasonable price. The insurance for utility property was separated from non-utility property last year in an effort to obtain better rates. 


The Utility Property Insurance will be considered in August for a September 1, 2021 effective date.  

Fiscal Impact:

The fiscal impact to the City is $468,443.


Property insurance premiums are paid from the Risk Management Fund 093, account number 4293-5207. The premium is then allocated to each department based on their actuarial impact to the premium. Property insurance costs are included in the the proposed 2021-2022 budget
