Cook, PE Director <br />RE: Kittitas County Claim for Damages Number 201908120064 <br />Dear Mr. Horner: <br />Public Works has reviewed the claim for damages submitted by Mr. David M. Paulsell <br />(08/12/2019 date stamp) and assigned number 201908120064. The results of our internal review <br />of the claim are listed below for your consideration. <br />• Public Works was engaged in gravel hauling operations on the date and time that Mr. <br />Paulsell's vehicle was damaged. <br />• The damage claimed is consistent with rock falling from a dump truck. <br />While we attempt to be diligent during gravel hauling operations, it is possible that a rock was <br />spilled onto a dump truck fender as was not noted by the driver. We cannot affirm that this was <br />or was not the case in this claim. I do believe, based on the fact pattern of the claim, that we <br />were more likely than not the cause of Mr. Paulsell's damage. I recommend payment of the <br />claim in the amount of the repair estimate: $489.99. <br />Sincerely, <br />EVEN �NOW <br />Mark R. Cook <br />Director <br />C: Mr. Jim Van de Venter, Maintenance Manager <br />Ms. Liz Remeto, Finance Manager <br />ATTACHMENT: Claim Number 201908120064 <br />411 N.
