The police department request councils approval to declare unit C17 as surplus property.
Police vehicle C17 was purchased in 2012 and placed out in the fleet for patrol to use.
Since 2012, Unit C17 has had several mechanical issues to include the water pump pulley going out twice as well as the air conditioner. Over the last three years, this vehicle has had the air conditioner stop working twice which it currently is not working and now that the vehicles are no longer made, the police department is unable to get parts to repair the patrol car.
I ask that this vehicle be declared surplus property and allow the police department to conduct a silent auction in which the proceeds would go towards the purchase of a marked 2014 Dodge Charger police vehicle currently owned by the Fresno Police Department and not to exceed a purchasing price of $1200.00.
Fresno Police Department is currently downing patrol vehicles because they have meet the department's vehicle mileage usage point. We have reached out to Fresno PD and they currently have a vehicle on hold for us, pending the approval of this staff report and the sale of Unit C17.
The Fresno PD vehicle is in good condition and we would take possession of the with the emergency equipment already installed, the only addition to the vehicle is adding our decals to the vehicle.
Do not approve staffs request.
V. FISCAL IMPACT:
Fiscal impact in the police departments budget would $400.00 for the purchase and installation of decals, which I currently have in this current years budget.
Proceeds from Unit C17 would go towards the purchase of the FPD unit and not exceed $1,200.00
