Fire Suppression Coverage - Are You Covered?
Unfortunately fires can happen - Be sure you are Covered!
Did you know that the average cost of fire suppression for a structure fire can be upwards of $10,000.00. This may be well over what you have for coverage in your insurance policy and, these costs are payable by the property owner to the fire suppression provider? Did you know that if a fire department responds to any other sort of fire (grass, lawnmower, burn barrel etc.), that there will also be a cost?
Will your insurance cover these costs? Be sure you take a look at your home insurance policy or talk to your insurance agent. Some insurance companies do not insure for fire equipment in the case of a fire, and some include up to two thousand dollars with an option for you to increase that coverage for a very reasonable additional cost. What does your policy say?
Drainage & Ditching Project - June 2017
The Summer Village has commenced with a drainage project throughout the municipality. The first step was assessing existing drainage issues and assessing culverts and approaches. Starting June 29th, 2017 (weather permitting), equipment will be in the Summer Village cleaning out the ends of culverts and ditches as required. After the ends of culverts have been cleaned out, those culverts that are plugged will be hydro-vac'd. We will be having first-calls done, where required, as we move along from street to street. Please do not approach the contractor, if you have any questions please call or email the administration office - 587-873-5765 / firstname.lastname@example.org. This drainage project is being funded through grant dollars.
