Meeting Date: May 23, 2006
Subject/Title: Reject the Claim Presented David B. Redding
Prepared by: Mary Jean Holden, Administrative Assistant
Submitted by: Margaret Wimberly, City Clerk
Reject the claim of David B. Redding that was presented on February 27,
2006, as recommended by the City’s third-party adjuster, Municipal Pooling
Authority of Northern California.
David B. Redding presented a claim in the amount of $4,321.15 for an
incident that took place on February 8, 2006, in front of 648 Second Street,
Brentwood. Damage occurred to his car when a tree limb broke and landed on
his vehicle. The claim is being recommended for rejection because the City
was not notified of any nuisance created by the tree prior to the incident
and the City has no independent duty to maintain the subject tree.
