Insert Cursor placing points from dictionary on top of each other

I am trying to push xy locations that are being pulled from a dictionary into an insert cursor.  The cursor is reading the xy locations correctly but is putting them all in the same location instead of placing them in the actual location when pulled into a map.


What I have tried:

1. changing the SHAPE@XY - all still come in the same location on top of each other

2. removing out of try statement - all still come in the same location on top of each other

3. removing edit session - returns error saying that I have to use one


I have attached a test GDB that includes the test data. To run code, all you have to do is change the location to where ever you save the GDB.  If you have any solution, PLEASE RESPOND


Here is the my code:

import arcpy

#Trigger: When it sees a change in date, it will then add frequency to that date
#What needs to be populated: compound, maintenance task, and park

#Attributes for Each Maintenance Task feature
CompAttribs = {
#Compound Name : [Location of Point, Compound, Park]
