PORTAGE, Wis. (AP) - The city of Portage has added terrorism insurance coverage.

The Portage Daily Register reports (https://bit.ly/1J7J8KK ) the Common Council added the coverage to its property insurance policy recently for an additional $1,286 per year. The overall policy costs about $55,000 per year.

Without including the coverage, the city would have limited ability to seek compensation after a foreign or domestic terrorism attack. The federal government makes the official determination if an attack was considered terrorism.

The city’s Finance and Administration Committee, which reviewed bids for overall property insurance coverage, recommended not including the extra protection.

But Common Council member Bill Kutzke says it was only $1,200 extra and it’s hard to know what will be classified as terrorism in the future.
