    Gordon news on Insurance. Our police needs there liability Insurance , no matter what...

     

    GORDON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - It looks like the city of Gordon will be insured next month, as long as council approves it.

    Robbie Mixon, a local insurance agent who's serving as a "middle-man" between the city and providers, gave the council quotes from several companies at a council worksession Thursday.

    A company called Trident quoted the city for all its needs, including every city-owned building and vehicle except an older pickup truck that's used as a mosquito sprayer.

    Western World Insurance offered quotes for liability insurance for public officials. Mixon suggested council go forward with what Trident and Western World Insurance have to offer. He says he was surprised that most of the quotes received were actually lower than what the city is paying under GIRMA (Georgia Interlocal Risk Management Agency).

    "I expected it to be a good bit higher with some of the lawsuits and things they've had in the city," Mixon says.

    Another company, Indian Harbor Insurance, was alone in offering a quote on law enforcement liability, but Mixon believes that price could come down and advised council to hold off on that purchase.

    Council meeting postponed

    The city's current insurance (under GIRMA) runs out on June 3, so that leaves council two more meeting opportunities to approve their new provider(s). The two scheduled meetings are on Monday, May 19 and Monday, June 2.

    The mayor announced Thursday the May 19 meeting will be moved to Wednesday, May 21. When 41NBC asked her why, she explained she didn't want to tie up city hall while it was being prepared for the upcoming election.

    The election is set for Tuesday, May 20.
