6B-DEL RIO (TE'XAS) NEWS-HERALD, Sunday. April 25, 1971 i ^ MAXIMUM DISCOUNT Good Fire Record Gives City Credit r t The City of Del Rio has received an increased fire insurance credit rating and has now attained the highest rating BERRY'S WORLD I allowed under state law. Fire Chief W. E. Zorn said Saturday that he has received official notice from the State "OK! OK! I'LL be Red China, and YOU can be the United States!" Bike Rodeo Set at The second annual Bicycle Rodeo, at Laughlin Air Force Base Motorcycle Club, Youth Activities Council of L.A.F.B., and Border Credit Union, is set for May 15. All cyclist planning to attend the event should register their'Wtftcles in advance. Registration will begin at 12 noon, Saturday, at 8084B Kenyon, and continue until 4pm. Sunday, May 2, bicycles may be registered at the same address from 2pm to 5pm. Registration forms require cyclist name, address, grade in school, age, make of bicycle, color of bicycle, bicycle serial number, and fathers name. Entrants are asked to have this information ready to insure proper registration. Base officials have helped tremendously in the acquistion of materials needed to set up the course, and members of the Coyote Dusters and Youth Activities Council have given unselfishly of their time and effort, but only the bicycle riders will determine whether the project succeeds or fails. Frank Hoffman, coordinator stated, "Parents are urged to not only encourage their youngsters to participate, but also to come out with them and provide a cheering section. Not only is it a day of fun, but it can be invaluable to the safety of all bicycle riders," Hoffman declared. "Any further information or questions can be obtained by contacting Hoffman at 298-3223 or calling the Youth Activities office on base," he concluded. Board of Insurance that Del Rio has been accelerated from a 20 per cent fire credit rating to the maximum 26 per cent. "This will be a good year for residents to buy fire insurance," said Zom. "Fire insurance buyers in Del Rio will receive a 25 per cent discount on their fire insurance premiums." he continued. A discount of 25 per cent is the maximum that can be attained by any Texas city, Texas is the only state among the 50 that utilizes the fire record credit-debit system, according to Zorn. The chief said it is possible that, Instead of a city receiving a credit or discount on its fire premiums, it could conceivably be assessed a penalty of up to 15 percent additional premiums for a bad fire loss record. For .example, the City of Fort Worth is charged an additional penalty of 10 per cent due to its fire loss record over the five-year period ending Sept. 30, 1970, With a five-year loss ration of 22 per cent, Del Rio has jumped into its highest fire loss ratio yet. A 24 per cent or less I ratio gives a city a 25 per cent I • good credit towards the Y purchase of fire insurance.
