Background Discussion

The County purchases Liquor Liability insurance to protect against the liability that potentially arises from selling or serving liquor at both the Convention Center and the Powel Crosley Estate. Previously the Convention Center purchased this policy via a bid process and the annual renewal of this policy is now being handled by the Risk Management Division via the County’s insurance broker, First Florida Insurance Brokers.

This renewal policy is being purchased through Illinois Union Insurance Company. The total premium for this renewal is $2,861.00 (inclusive of all taxes and fees).

The County Attorney and Risk Management recommend purchasing this Liquor Liability policy in the amount of $2,861.00 (inclusive of all taxes and fees).  Furthermore, the County Attorney requests authorization for him, or his designee, to execute all related documents.
