The Police Department request Councils permission to donate an old detectives vehicle to Gimme Love
The police Department has a 2005 Ford Crown Victoria (CV), in which this vehicle has been used as patrol vehicle and as a detectives vehicle over the years. This vehicle is no longer used by the police department and is collecting dust sitting in the back parking lot.
The department currently has a white 2005 Ford Crown Victoria unmarked police car which has not been used by the police department in the past 2 years. This vehicle is currently sitting in the back parking lot taking up space and collecting dust. The vehicle currently has 131,455 miles on it and is currently worth approximately $324 to $639 on the fair side and if the vehicle was in excellent condition the price would range from $694.00 to $1,261.00.
I have been contacted by Gimme Love and they have requested the vehicle be donated to them with Council's approval. They plan on using the CV for an in town car so they are not putting miles on the van they currently have or their personal vehicles.
Council can deny this request and direct the department to take the vehicle to auction on attempt to sell it using the GovDeals website.
V. FISCAL IMPACT:
If donated to Gimme Love, there would be no fiscal impact.
If directed by the council, the vehicle can be sent to auction our we can attempt to sell the vehicle on GovDeals, the funds from either of these options would give a small positive outcome after paying all fees associated with the auctions. The amount is unknown at this time.
