The Police Chief recommends the Council authorize the use of funds received from the sale of surplus radio equipment and firearms to supplement the cost to replace old police department furniture and new flooring for records.
At the February 2, 2020 Council meeting, the Council authorized the police department to sell its firearms once the police department received their new firearms. On June 18, 2020, the City Council authorized the police department to sell it's surplus radios via an online auction site.
After the online auction and the sale of the department firearms were complete, the police department received the following proceeds:
Sale of 35 Glock's: $9,950.00
Auction of surplus radios: $804.34
For a total of $10,754.34
The police department would like to use these funds to purchase new conference room office chairs and office desks and the remaining amount to replace the flooring in records.
Use the proceeds for other purposes
V. FISCAL IMPACT:
There would be a fiscal impact of $9,554.34 to the general fund if the funds were approved to be redirected to this project.
