Claims for money and damages are governed by Town of Truckee Municipal Code Chapter 3.16. If you have property damage which you believe was caused by the Town of Truckee you must file a claim, generally within six (6) months from the date of the incident. You may complete the claim form on-line or print the form (PDF) or contact us and a form will be mailed to you. Mail the claim form to Town of Truckee, 10183 Truckee Airport Road, Truckee, CA 96161.
Once the claim is received the claim will be processed as quickly as possible. An investigation, audit of receipts, and review by town management is required. The Town Manager or Council has final authority on the determination of all claims. The Town has forty-five (45) days to make a determination on whether to accept or deny the claim. See Municipal Code Chapter 3.16 for more information.
Things to consider to be sure your claim is processed as quickly as possible:
