Discussion of Risk Management Insurance for the Village was the topic of the evening. Julie Hearring and her Father, Don Blank, of Blank’s Insurance Agency introduced themselves and led the discussion. Julie stated that the Village must give a written, sixty-day notice, to our existing company, Illinois Municipal League Risk Management Association, if we wish to terminate our coverage. Julie distributed a commercial package comparison for 2010-2011 to everyone for review. The comparison was between ICRMT and US Specialty Insurance Co. ICRMT’s total quote was $25,239.00 and USCT’s total quote was $15,425.00 without worker’s compensation. The Village paid $23,664.00 to Illinois Municipal League last year. After much discussion, it was decided to go ahead with the notice of termination to our existing company to meet the sixty-day notice requirement. But, in the meantime, we will ask IMLRMA to provide us with a quote and present at the next regularly scheduled Board Meeting.

President Murbarger stated that Louis Curl resigned from the South Central Illinois Regional Planning and Development Commission Board and that he would like to take his place. Motion to allow President Murbarger to serve on this Board made by Trustee Leonard and seconded by Trustee Miller.
