Submitted by: Karen Diaz, City Clerk/Director of Administrative Services
Reject the claim of Karyn Jasch presented on August 26, 2004 as recommended
by the City’s third party adjuster, Contra Costa County Municipal Risk
Management Insurance Authority, and the City Attorney.
Claimant, Karyn Jasch, presented a claim in the amount of $2,896.23 for
damage to her vehicle and a week’s rental car charge. Claimant states that
on July 10, 2004 a person directing traffic at the temporary CornFest
parking lot located at Central Boulevard and Second Street failed to warn
her of a post in the path of her vehicle.
The City neither owns nor controlled the subject parking lot. The owner of
the property is HPH Properties Limited Partnership. The secondary owner is
Equus Group. Tom Garcia of the Chamber of Commerce secured the lot as fund
raiser for the school. The Chamber of Commence furnished the City with an
insurance certificate naming the City of Brentwood as an additional insured
on their policy for Cornfest. Separately, an insurance certificate was
issued on the same policy naming Equus Group as an additional insured.
This claim has been tendered to Scottsdale Insurance based upon its
additional insured status on the Bentwood Chamber of Commerce policy for
No fiscal impact at this time.
