Neither town, nor the Sedgwick-Brooksville Town Landing Committee, carries insurance on damage to the property although that may change in the future, Sedgwick First Selectman Neil Davis said when selectmen met on April 16. The exact cost of replacing wooden planks and inside fixtures to the outhouse and windows and a door to the courtesy boathouse has not been determined, Davis said.
