The Risk Management Division administers the City’s Self-Insurance Fund. The City is self-insured for the vast majority of loss exposures, including general liability, automobile liability, workers’ compensation, property damage, and professional liability, to name a few.

Division staff identifies and analyzes loss exposures that exist in City daily operations. Staff implements solutions to prevent, minimize, control, or transfer the loss exposure. These efforts assist internal City operations in the delivery of services to the public by minimizing costs associated with loss exposures.
