CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 10

Meeting Date: July 26, 2005

Subject/Title: Reject the claim presented by Audrey Richards

Prepared by: Mary Jean Holden, Administrative Assistant

Submitted by: Karen Chew, Assistant City Manager
____________________________________________________________________________

RECOMMENDATION
Reject the claim of Audrey Richards that was presented on April 27, 2005, as recommended by the City’s third-party adjuster, Municipal Pooling Authority of Northern California.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None.

BACKGROUND
Audrey Richards, presented a claim in the amount of $815.00 for an incident that took place on April 9, 2005. Ms. Richards claims that after a routine water shut down on April 8, 2005, when water service was restored it caused her water heater to leak, needing replacement.

This claim was recommended for rejection because the City water crew followed its routine procedure for dewatering a line to minimize water hammer in the distribution system. It is the opinion of staff that this is not a valid claim since, had there been water hammer, there would have been multiple instances of problems with internal plumbing.

FISCAL IMPACT
No fiscal impact at this time.
