New insurance will save city thousands

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

The Chiefland City Commission voted 3-1 Monday night to accept a bid that may save the city thousands of dollars in insurance costs.

According to a city report, only two companies, Florida League of Cities and Don Martin Insurance/Brown and Brown Insurance, responded to the city's invitation to bid on city property, liability and workers compensation insurance.

Florida League of Cities, which offers a rate of $11,482.66 cheaper than their local competitor, was chosen as the new insurance provider.

Vice Mayor and Commissioner Teresa Barron said, " We like to do business locally, however, $11,000 is a lot of money. We're in a budget crunch, as is everybody."

Officials at the meeting also said that a determining factor in the decision was based on Don Martin Insurance's inability to provide firm, and complete, prices.

The total cost of insurance with the new provider is $128, 171 for the upcoming year.

Besides the decision to go with a new provider for city property, liability and workers compensation insurance, the commissioners also voted on new bids from city healthcare providers and refuse collection and disposal services.
