KLC Insurance Services helps members increase public safety with a number of proactive programs and services.

Kentucky League of Cities Insurance Services has awarded in excess of $4.8 million since the Safety Grant Program started in 1999. The awarded funds will go toward personnel services provided by the KLC legal team, mulching mowers or kits, vehicle back-up cameras, defensive driving training, police accreditation fees, gun safes, crumb rubber, engineered wood fiber or pea gravel for playground cushioning material, new playground equipment to replace old equipment, sidewalk replacement, and sewer backup prevention.

“Our philosophy is to prevent injuries and claims from happening,” said J. D. Chaney, executive director/CEO. “We want to partner with our members, and this safety grant promotes good risk management. There is no better way to invest our member’s money.”
