Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby said last Wednesday afternoon that Ohio Casualty, owned by Liberty Mutual, wants the School Board to decide on an “agent of record” – the agent the board will work with to secure an insurance quote from them.
“[Ohio Casualty] will only provide the quote for us with one agent. There are four agents wanting to secure that quote from Ohio Casualty,” said Hamby. “And basically they are wanting us to identify the agent that we wish to work with, should the board … select Ohio Casualty/Liberty Mutual to be the insurance company.”
The agent will represent Liberty Mutual when the company submits a bid to provide coverage to the district for insurance services, including property, general liability and workman’s compensation.
Three insurance agencies – Woodall Insurance, Peel and Holland and Higgins Insurance - were on hand Thursday night to be the board’s agent of record to secure Ohio Casualty’s bid, and there will be other agents who will bring bids from other insurance companies, said Hamby.
School Board Chair Mike Davis and Board member Donnie Holland voted for Woodall Insurance. Board member LaVern Baker voted against Woodall Insurance in favor of Higgins Insurance.
