Sorrento gets additional insurance quote
SORRENTO - The Sorrento town council has an additional insurance quote to consider ahead of their Feb. 4 council meeting.
The quote, which was discussed briefly at the previous council meeting, offers liability insurance for the chief of police and his assistant for a premium of about $45,000 per year, including fees and taxes.
The quote wouldn't cover sexual abuse and molestation or assault and battery without an additional premium.
Much of the Sorrento Police Department was shuttered after it lost insurance coverage in November. The chief and assistant chief are still patrolling the town and answering calls during the day, with sheriff's deputies providing assistance at night and during the weekend.
The council will discuss the quote during their regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday. Chief of Police Earl Theriot is expected to be at the meeting.
