I’m pretty sure the City of Bloomington doesn’t advertise this, but they pay a lot for liability insurance. According to the proposed budget, here’s what it covers:

Bloomington is paying more than $4 million a year for this insurance. They have a Fund Balance of over $2.5 million. See PDF page 195.
If you can prove damages, get reimbursed. You don’t have to be a resident of Bloomington.
FYI: Hershey Road was bad last year. Winter may have made it worse, but winter is not totally to blame. Spending on “Quality of Life” instead of roads is the problem.
