Highway Commissioner’s Diary
The Highway Commissioner’s Diary was unveiled in 1993 to help reduce the likelihood and cost of claims by documenting weather conditions, inspections, road work, etc. At the request of several Highway Commissioner’s, the diary was put into an electronic format in 2007 - it is in an Excel workbook.
Human Resources Help Line
In 1999 TOIRMA introduced the Human Resources Help Line, giving TOIRMA members access to Human Resources professionals to assist in answering employment-related questions and issues at NO COST TO THE MEMBER. The Human Resources Help Line continues to be a vital part of the risk management concept and the prevention of claims. Please call the Human Resources Help Line for guidance BEFORE you take action.
Mosquito Abatement Guidelines
In 2006 there were 215 human cases of the West Nile Virus reported in Illinois to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The West Nile Virus can cause serious, life-altering and even fatal disease. Most townships contract for mosquito abatement services, but some have a certified township employee apply the larvicide. TOIRMA does have a liability limit on mosquito abatement of $50,000 each occurrence per Member with a $50,000 annual aggregate each Member. The Mosquito Abatement Guidelines were implemented to help avoid claims.
Summary of Coverages
Just as the title indicates, this is a summary of coverages provided by TOIRMA.
Vehicle Identification Cards
Effective January 1, 1990 all registered vehicles in the State of Illinois were required to have liability coverage. However, as with most laws, there are exceptions. Certain vehicles are exempt from the mandatory vehicle insurance law, including vehicles owned by federal, state, or local governmental agencies. Despite the exception to the law, the TOIRMA Board of Trustees was of the opinion that TOIRMA members would find comfort in having evidence of coverage in their vehicles. The Vehicle Identification Cards can be printed out and put in the glove compartment of your vehicle. TOIRMA also offers the Vehicle Identification Card in a plastic sleeve – call 1-800-252-5059, ext. 1139 and Beth will send you a supply.
