Risk Management has a wide range of responsibilities that revolve around three main concepts: protecting City property from loss or damage, protecting the City staff by providing a safe and healthful work environment, and the resolution of liability claims made against the City. 

To that end, the Risk Management Division is involved in many activities that include:

  • Identifying, measuring and treating the City’s loss exposures.
  • Developing guidance and consulting with City departments on safety-related issues.

  • Conducting safety inspections of City-owned property and at City work sites.

  • Providing safety training programs to City employees.

  • Managing the City’s self-insured injured worker program.

  • Processing property and liability insurance claims.

  • Investigating and resolving claims made against the City.

  • Pursuing subrogation claims to recover property damage and employee injury expenses caused by responsible parties.

  • Reviewing City contracts for appropriate insurance provisions.

  • Maintaining a record of certificates of insurance for contractors and vendors doing business with the City.
