Fiscal Note

The proposed resolution authorizes the transfer of funding from the 2016 Police Department Operating Budget ($8,000 MUNIS account 31100-53413) and the Department of Justice Officer Recertification Operating Budget ($14,840 MUNIS account 12503110-54130) to the Fleet Service Capital Budget (MUNIS project 12005-41-150). These funds, in addition to $22,840 in the Fleet Service capital project, will be used to purchase a full-size SUV, replacing an existing MPD vehicle that has reached the end of its useful life.  Proceeds from the sale of the existing vehicle will be used to equip the new SUV.  MPD annually receives funds from the State for officer training which are accounted for in the Department of Justice Officer Recertification account.  The State has approved using these funds for the purchase of the SUV.
