NEW BERLIN – During the Village of New Berlin's board meeting last Tuesday, village officials discussed and addressed an insurance inspection that left the village with several recommendations.
According to Village of New Berlin Clerk Treasurer Kelly Anderson, the village's insurance company Tokio Marine HCC performed an inspection in September, which resulted in one A priority recommendation which must be responded to by January, and several B priority recommendations that the village has already addressed.
"Basically the A priority item is, the village doesn't have a written policy about playground equipment safety inspections, and does not document inspections and maintenance of the equipment," said Anderson.
Anderson said while the village does maintain the playground and perform the inspections, it doesn't have a written policy on the playground's maintenance or a way to document when and how frequently repairs are completed.
"They want us to have a written policy on how were going to inspect and maintain playground equipment, and document any repairs we do on the equipment," said Anderson.
She said after working with the village's youth commissioner Haywood Edwards, the village has already created a draft written policy to vote on and review at the next board meeting.
