BACKGROUND

On April 21, 2017, the City of Chino received a claim for damages from Mercury Insurance Company on behalf of their insured, Marisol Zoueihid, alleging that vehicle damages sustained by their insured on November 7, 2016 were caused by a City of Chino employee. The claimant demands $4,384.66 in subrogation and an additional $498.36 paid directly to their insured for out of pocket expenses for a total amount of $4,883.02.

 

ISSUES/ANALYSIS

Chino Municipal Code Section 3.70.070 provides that the City Council shall act on a claim in the manner provided in Government Code Section 912.4 and 912.6 within forty-five days after the claim has been presented. If the City Council fails to act on any claim filed under this chapter, the claim will be deemed denied on the forty-fifth day after the claim was presented.

Staff recommends the claim be rejected and notification of denial be sent to claimant.
