Ottawa hoping insurance will cover lightening damage at Reddick Mansion

Posted by wlpo on July 28, 2011

The cost of repairing the Reddick Mansion after a lightning strike will be well into the thousands.

Public Property Commissioner Dan Aussem is meeting with the city’s insurance adjustor Thursday in hopes of getting repairs covered under insurance.  Aussem thinks the mansion needs a new roof and chimney and also will need repairs to a window and air conditioning unit.  Workers were on the roof Wednesday temporarily patching holes.

The Ottawa Visitor’s Center who has office space in the mansion also had their phone and computer system damaged by the Sunday morning strike.
