Cal LeGrow Insurance has picked up a hefty contract with the City of Mount Pearl.
Councillor Andrea Power said the City received several proposals for the provision of insurance services when it issued a Request for Proposals earlier this year and the corporate and community services committee recommended it go to Cal LeGrow.
The company will be paid some $419,947 next year for its work with an option to renew for an additional four years at the discretion of council.
"It comes down to the services that can be provided as well as the inclusions (of coverage) and the cost for services," Power said. "It was evaluated appropriately within the department and brought forward to our committee."
The decision to approve the contract passed unanimously in the absence of councillor Lucy Stoyles, who declared a potential conflict of interest and left the chamber prior to the discussion and vote.
