The City of Garden City Announces Voluntary Service Warranty Program
The City of Garden City is notifying residents of a program provided through a partnership between the National League of Cities (NLC) and Service Line Warranties of America (SLWA). The Service Line Warranty program provides a low cost, worry free warranty protection for water and sewer lines.
This new voluntary program offered by SLWA will provide warranty protection to help cover the costs of an unexpected repair to water and sewer lines. The program is aimed to help mitigate some of the risks that homeowners in Garden City often face. Customers are often unaware that they are responsible for the water and sewer service lines that go from the utility connection to their home. If these lines break or leak, repairs can be very expensive. The Service Line Warranty program offers customers an affordable way to avoid the unexpected and often large expenses involved with a water or sewer line break.
The cost for citizens who choose to purchase the warranty protection is $6.25 per month, per utility line, and will cover water and/or sewer line repairs up to $4,000 for each plus an additional allowance of $4,000 for public street cutting, if necessary. The program is offered at no cost to the City of Garden City, and no public funds are used to promote the program.
We at the City urge you to read the Service Line Warranty Program’s information carefully and inquire of insurance provider if repairs to water and sewer line systems are covered in your homeowners insurance policy. If your policy does not cover water or sewer utility lines, we suggest that you look into this program. The following list of links has been furnished to aid you in your research and to demonstrate the National League of Cities Service Line Warranty Program and Service Line Warranties of America’s ability to ensure competent, quick and safe repairs to your water or sewer line in the event of a water or sewer line leak, break or emergency.
