CARTHAGE After reviewing proposals from Fuller Insurance Agency Inc. and Haylor, Freyer & Coon Inc., the village Board of Trustees opted for Fuller.
Village President G. Wayne McIlroy said the board annually reviews the villages coverage.
We want to make sure we are getting the best coverage at the best price, and Fullers came in a little less, Mr. McIlroy said.
After reviewing the villages insurance needs, Michael C. Gillette of the Fuller agency suggested a policy through Glatfelter Public Practice of York, Pa., which specializes in municipalities, water and sewer districts and other public entities.
During a review prior to Monday nights board meeting, Mr. Gillette met with the board to discuss the policy and point out some possible gaps in coverage.
He discussed sewer, dam, OCP (owner and contractors protective liability), crime bonding and skateboard park coverage.
Board members were under the assumption that the sewer was covered under an agreement with West Carthage through the Joint Utility Board. It was suggested that the park could be covered under another listing, such as recreation.
The board voted to accept the new policy, asking Mr. Gillette to further investigate gaps in coverage and report on his findings at the July 16 meeting.
