Approve a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to sell one (1)
used/surplus 1995 Jeep Cherokee (vehicle 039) to Futures Explored,
Incorporated for use by the enclave performing custodial duties in City
On previous occasions, the City Council has authorized the distribution/sale
of surplus City of Brentwood vehicles/equipment to other agencies such as
the City of Oakley, the Contra Costa Community College District, and our
local school districts.
On June 8, 2004, City Council approved the purchase of one (1) Ford Escape
to replace vehicle 039, providing for the disposal/sale of this vehicle in
fiscal year 2004/2005. On November 24, 2004 the City of Brentwood received a
request (attached) from Will Sanford, Executive Director of Futures
Explored, to purchase this vehicle for their use in the service they provide
to the City’s Parks Division. As explained in Mr. Sanford’s letter, one of
the vehicles they are currently using is in need of replacement. He feels
this surplus vehicle will fit their needs.
As you are aware, from a previous presentation to the City Council, the
Parks Division contracts with this non-profit organization that works with
developmentally disabled adults. These individuals pick up litter, empty
garbage cans, sweep, rake and clean restrooms located in our parks. This
organization not only provides a needed service to the City of Brentwood but
also provides a vocational training service to this special population of
individuals. They believe, as we do, that people with disabilities can, and
have a right to, earn wages at their jobs, and in their community, just as
their non-disabled peers do.
The revenue derived from the sale of surplus vehicles is used to augment the
Vehicle Replacement Fund. The price offered by Futures Explored ($1,000)
will augment this fund.
