A Resolution to Amend and Reenact the Self-Insurance Program of the City of Hampton, Virginia.

 

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, the City of Hampton, Virginia, has established a self-insurance program to provide liability coverage in order to protect the assets of the City at a manageable cost; and

 

WHEREAS, it is the policy of the governing body to provide protection for the officers and officials of the City of Hampton, Virginia, its employees, agents and volunteers, including any commission or board, and the members and employees thereof, any authority created or controlled by the local governing body, or any local agency or public service corporation operated or controlled by such local governing body and the constitutional officers and their employees in the discharge of their official duties.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, pursuant to Virginia Code 15.2-1518, does hereby authorize the City Manager to provide protection under the previously-established self-insurance program from any and all claims, or occurrences which may produce claims, against the officers and officials of the City of Hampton, Virginia, and/or its employees, agents and volunteers, including any commission or board, and the members and employees thereof, any authority created or controlled by the local governing body, or any local agency or public service corporation operated or controlled by such local governing body and the constitutional officers and their employees in the discharge of their official duties, while acting within the scope of their duties as such or on behalf of the City of Hampton, Virginia, except for liabilities arising from criminal acts, willful misconduct, or intentional torts. The City Council hereby authorizes the City Manager to provide such coverage under the self-insurance program established by the City to the extent the claims arising out of any one occurrence do not exceed the sum of one million dollars ($1,000,000.00).

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the coverage afforded under the self-insurance program of the City of Hampton, Virginia, will be applied to cover the costs and expenses incident to such liability, including those incurred in defending court actions, suits or proceedings brought against the aforementioned parties and for the settlement of claims and the satisfaction of judgments.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, does hereby authorize the City Manager to provide additional protection from any claims that may be asserted against the City and/or any of the aforementioned parties by purchasing excess commercial liability insurance or through participation in a public entity self-insurance mechanism, whichever is deemed appropriate.

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia, does not waive the sovereign immunity of the City with respect to claims asserted by third parties except to the extent provided by statute and waives its sovereign immunity with respect to claims for liability coverage asserted by its employees, agents and volunteers, including any commission or board, and the members and employees thereof, any authority created or controlled by the local governing body, or any local agency or public service corporation operated or controlled by such local governing body and the constitutional officers and their employees only to the extent of the one million dollars ($1,000,000.00) in coverage to be provided under the City of Hamptons self-insurance program for any one occurrence and the sum available under any excess coverage procured by the City Manager.

 

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia held on March 28, 2007.
