CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: July 22, 2003
Subject/Title: Reject the Claim Presented by Michelle McDaniels
Submitted by: Karen Diaz, City Clerk/Director of Administrative Services
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Reject the claim submitted by Michelle McDaniels as recommended by the
City’s third-party insurance adjuster, Contra Costa County Municipal Risk
Management Insurance Authority and the City Attorney.
Claimant, Michelle McDaniels, has filed suit against Ryder Homes. The City
is not named in the complaint. Ryder, in turn, has tendered the defense of
the suit to D.A. McCosker Construction Company and Wayne Swisher Cement
Contractor, Inc. The Ryder tender to contractors also included the tender of
the City of Brentwood’s claim to Ryder. The City’s third-party insurance
adjuster, Municipal Risk Management Insurance Authority, has not received a
formal acceptance of the City’s tender. However, there is no active suit
pending against the City.
No fiscal impact at this time.
