Risk Management

The city's Risk Management Division seeks to establish and maintain internal fiscal and policy controls to avert risk to the organization and employees, including ensuring city assets are protected from loss, theft, and misuse and protecting employees from mistreatment.

The mission includes the desire to reduce city losses from liability claims, lawsuits, and property damage. The Risk Management Division has responsibility for reviewing and determining the appropriate city action for any claims submitted against the city.

  • Foster a safe and ergonomically sound workplace environment.
  • Minimize injuries to employees that result in workers' compensation costs and lost time.
  • Ensure that employees are adequately trained on workplace wrongdoing and the consequences thereof.
  • Ensure that employees learn the appropriate means for reporting an incident.
  • Maintain an environment that is free of workplace wrongdoing.
