There will be no trash pickup on Christmas and New Year’s days. Garbage collection will be delayed one day from Dec. 25 through Jan. 5. So, Monday’s routes will be serviced on Tuesday. Tuesday’s routes will be serviced on Wednesday, and so on into Saturday during the weeks of Dec. 25 and Jan. 1. Routes for commercial customers will also lag by a day during that two-week span. City offices will be closed Dec. 25-26 and Jan. 1 for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

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.
