  Item Number 8.6.       
Meeting Date: 09/07/2021  
ITEM TITLE:    2009 Saturn Vue to auction
Department: Public Works  
REQUESTED BY: Tony Johnson

PURPOSE:
Discuss the repairs needed to the 2009 Saturn Vue (city car) or sell at auction.  
ITEM SUMMARY:
Several years ago the WPD had a vehicle that was forfeited to the city.  The city staff has been using the car for many years for an extra vehicle for the WPD, and also training transportation.  This past year there has been many repairs needed to keep the vehicle operational.  The transmission is not working, the car will not move.  The suspension needs replacement parts.  Check engine lights have been on and unable to be reset after some small minor repairs.  The engine also needs major timing chain work which involves taking half the engine apart and also engine head work.  We feel that any costs for repair would outweigh the price of the vehicle and recommend it go to auction.  
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:
Put the vehicle on our auction site for sale.  Hopefully recoup $200-$1,000 for the vehicle to be put back in the CIP.
