The City of Pinellas Park requires Organizations, Contractors, and or Businesses who perform services on behalf of the City, participate in City projects, conduct business on City property, or lease City facilities, to meet the City's insurance guidelines and to provide evidence of such insurance.
The insurance limits set forth by the City for the vast majority of business agreements are as follows: $1,000,000 each for Commercial General Liability and Auto Liability (must cover for any auto, hired autos, and non-owned autos). Statutory Workers' Compensation and Employers' Liability coverage is also required.
When the insurance limits listed are not appropriate, the City's insurance requirements are determined by the Risk Management Division based on the size, scope, and hazards involved in the project or business agreement. If new construction is involved Builders' Risk coverage is required and if professional services are to be rendered, Professional Liability Insurance is required in addition to any other insurance which is appropriate.
In addition to providing the limits of insurance which are required above, the City must be named as an "Additional Insured" with respect to General Liability coverage.
Hold Harmless & Indemnification Agreement
The City requires that a signed Hold Harmless and Indemnification Agreement be executed for each business agreement or contract in order to protect the City against any and all costs, losses and damages arising out of the performance of a contractor organization, or vendor, its agents, servants, or employees' work or services.
Surety Bonds may also be required for some projects.
