CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO.
Meeting Date: January 22, 2002
Subject/Title: Reject claim presented by Leyla Aminsorkhi
Submitted by: Karen Diaz, City Clerk
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Reject the claim presented on September 25, 2000 by Leyla Aminsorkhi related to a September 18, 2000 incident as recommended the City Attorney.
On September 18, 2000, City crews were conducting weed abatement at Lone Tree Way near Fairview Avenue. A stray rock shattered the right rear passenger window and cracked the windshield of Ms. Aminsorkhi’s vehicle. To date the city has paid $465.45 for the replacement of both windows and $348.38 for a rental car while the claimant’s car was in the shop. Staff requested that the claimant sign a property damage release form. However, as of this date Ms. Aminsorkhi has not signed nor returned the form, and the claimant has made no further demands. Staff recommends that Aminsorkhi claim be rejected so that the six-month period to file a lawsuit can commence.
