The Risk Management Committee was formed by the Town Board in March 1999 to promote safety and health issues for all employees. The committee reviews and addresses potential problem areas that impact the Town from a life, safety, employee work environment and potential public liability exposure perspective. The Committee also coordinates these issues between the various Departments of the Town and follows up outstanding recommendations to be reported to the Town Board.
In March 2001 it was decided that the Committee should place increased emphasis on safety considerations for the benefit of both the Town and employees and the Town Board expanded the name to Risk Management and Safety Committee. The Committee has increased efficiency in many areas of Town operations, lowered insurance costs and reduced possible liability exposures. It is composed of a Town Board member and a member of the public. The Town’s insurance broker is an integral part of the Committee’s actions and provides a great deal of guidance and the benefit of his extensive experience.
