Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager
Sell one police vehicle (1994 Chevy Caprice, License E363277) to the City of
Oakley in the amount of $1.
On March 14, 2000 Council approved the sale of two vehicles to the City of
Oakley for $1 each.
The City of Brentwood is replacing several vehicles that are no longer useful
for routine patrol. The City of Oakley continues to organize their Police Department
and has a need for vehicles. In discussion with Staff at the Police Department,
it appeared to be beneficial to both Oakley and Brentwood for Brentwood to
support Oakley’s efforts to start their Department through the recommended
action. By having the Oakley Police Department in place, the cooperative efforts
between the two departments provide a much better opportunity to serve the
public both in prevention and enforcement.
Chief Tom Lambert of the Oakley Police Department was contacted and asked if
he would be interested in receiving this vehicle for $1. He stated that he
would be most happy to do so. He intends to use the vehicle as a supplemental
transportation vehicle, which is an appropriate use.
Should the Council agree this is appropriate, the Department recommends that
the sale be finalized immediately, as the car is already off-line and being
