CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 14

Meeting Date: October 26, 2004

Subject/Title: Authorize the City Manager to sell one (1) used Ford patrol vehicle to Contra Costa Community College District

Prepared by: Kevin King, Lieutenant

Submitted by: Michael R. Davies, Police Chief

RECOMMENDATION
Approve the attached Resolution to authorize the City Manager to sell one (1) used/surplus Ford Crown Victoria police vehicle to the Contra Costa Community College District for use by their Public Safety personnel for the patrol of local community college campuses.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On prior occasions, Council has authorized the distribution / sale of surplus City of Brentwood police vehicles to allied local law enforcement agencies. Prior sales/distributions have been made to the City of Oakley Police Department on two prior occasions.

BACKGROUND
On May 11th, 2004, the City Council approved the purchase/replacement of eight (8) patrol vehicles, providing for the disposal, sale, and/or reallocation of approximately seven (7) vehicles in fiscal year 2004/2005. On October 14, 2004, The Brentwood Police Department received a request from the Public Safety Department of the Contra Costa Community College District as to the potential availability of used/surplus police vehicles. The College District Public Safety division, because of pressing budget constraints, and unanticipated vehicle failures found themselves in near-crisis conditions related to availability of patrol vehicles, prompting this request.

Sale/distribution of retired police vehicles in this manner has historically reduced incurred costs by the City of Brentwood by minimizing the labor involved in removing emergency equipment prior to making them available for public resale. Prior recipient allied agencies have expressed gratitude to the City of Brentwood for making these police vehicles available to them for official use. These vehicles, in similar condition, have been dispersed for unit prices ranging from $3,000 to $5,000, depending on equipment.

The unit identified for this dispersal is BPD Unit #10 (2000 Crown Victoria), which was previously scheduled to be replaced in the Spring/Fall of 2004.

FISCAL IMPACT
The revenue derived from the sale of surplus vehicles has historically augmented the existing Vehicle Replacement fund. The agreed upon price of $5,000 for this sale is proposed to supplement this existing fund.
