IX.I. Approve the FY 21 Vaaler Insurance Proposal
Description:  I spoke with Bruce Vaaler today and we both recommend to the Board that we use the Merkel quote for SFM (our Workmans comp carrier) and use Liberty Mutual for our other liability insurance. Our property liability would be increased and we can maintain SFM as our carrier. The savings to the district is excellent. 
Our Fy 21 cost will be $156,705.36+11,395 ($62,231-$50,836)=$168,100.36. Our Fy 20 premium was $183,409.17. This is savings to us over Fy 20 is $15,308.81
