RESOLUTION NO. 120404

 

 

Authorizing the City Manager to investigate and if he deems appropriate to participate in the National League of Cities Service Line Warranty Program.

 

WHEREAS, the National League of Cities, in conjunction with Utility Services Partners, Inc., has established the NLC Service Line Warranty Program by which residents of participating cities may purchase a warranty for private water and sewer lines located between the public service lines and the exterior of a residence; and

 

WHEREAS, the usual cost of the warranties is about $10 per month, a small portion of which is paid annually to the City by Service Line Warranties of America for the City’s cooperation in marketing this program to residents; and

 

WHEREAS, repairs to private lines, which are the sole responsibility of a home owner, may reach several thousand dollars which is not generally covered by home insurance; and

 

WHEREAS, small and large cities, including Phoenix, Atlanta, and Milwaukee, currently participate in this program; and

 

WHEREAS, local contractors are used to complete covered repairs and residents may select a contractor from the approved list of licensed contractors; and

 

WHEREAS, marketing material will be mailed to residents over the signature of a designated City signor on material reflecting it is from the City, but that it will be paid for by Service Line Warranties of America; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the City Manager is authorized to investigate and if he deems appropriate to participate in the National League of Cities Service Line Warranty Program.
