SUBJECT:
Title
AUTHORIZE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR TO APPROVE AND BIND COVERAGE ON A PUBLIC ENTITY LIABILITY POLICY FROM CHUBB COMPANIES USA, PROCURED THROUGH MARSH USA, INC. IN AN AGGREGATE LIMIT OF NO MORE $10,000,000 AND A PREMIUM AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $85,000 INCLUDING ANY APPLICABLE SURPLUS LINES TAXES

Body
I. SUMMARY

This action authorizes the Executive Director to approve and bind a renewal of a Public Entity Liability Policy on behalf of the Carson Reclamation Authority offered by Chubb Companies USA, underwritten by ACE American Insurance Company.

Body
III. ALTERNATIVES

TAKE another action deemed acceptable by the Authority Board.
