Administers City's property, liability, workers compensation insurance and self-insurance program, and City's safety and loss program.

The Risk Management Division also processes claims against the City as well as property claims on City-owned property. Example of a claim against the city: Let's say a citizen comes into City Hall and slips on water on the floor. This would be considered a liability claim.

On the other hand, if a fire is started accidentally in City-owned property the resulting damages would be considered a property claim.

A Workers' Compensation claim is one where a City employee is injured while performing work for the City.

Volunteers are insured for injuries under an Accidental Death & Dismemberment policy.
