Insurance will cover the costs for fixing the Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Information Centre building in Port Hardy

McCarrick confirmed that district insurance will cover the structural costs.

The District of Port Hardy’s Chief Administrative Officer Allison McCarrick gave a brief update on the status of the Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Information Centre after a flood caused damage to the building.

“We’ve got our adjusters on it, they’re doing their calculations and (looking at) what needs to be done,” stated McCarrick at the district’s last council meeting Jan. 8. “They’ve got some fans in there right now, Elizabeth (executive director for the Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Information Centre) is looking after securing some properties, and they’re in the works of using mobile access to provide services on the web.”

When asked if insurance will cover the costs to fix the building, McCarrick confirmed that district insurance will cover the structural costs, “and the chamber has content insurance that will cover the contents as well as them moving to another centre.”

McCarrick also noted the district currently has no plans to use other types of funding for upgrades on the building, unless the Chamber of Commerce & Visitor Information Centre come to council with a specific ask.
