Subrogation pursues parties who damage City property. We recover the cost of repairs, or take legal action for non-payment against parties at fault. We work with City bureaus to identify the costs, then engage the district attorney, insurance companies, and citizens to recover those costs.

The subrogation process can take a few days to several months. If the party who caused damage comes forward and pays for damages, it could be swift. If no one comes forward, it could take weeks or months to find the party at fault.
