Damages & Building Insurance

City of Somerville FY22 Budget

The City appropriates money to a “Damages to Persons and Property” account to fund any potential unforeseen litigation settlements. The City’s Law Department represents the City in all pending and newly filed litigation matters. The Department has successfully minimized the amount of judgments and settlements in negligence cases and contract actions. The City holds an insurance policy on its buildings as well.
