Receive, consider and act upon a vehicle purchase for Montgomery County Constable Precinct 3;
The cost of the fully equipped vehicle is estimated to cost $43,488.40 (Attachment A). Approximately $80,000 remains in the 2017 Budget for Law Enforcement and is available to fund this request. The purchased vehicle will reduce the annual car allowance by approximately $18,900.
The Woodlands Township received a request from Montgomery County Constable Ryan Gable to fund a vehicle for a new Detective. The Constable expects to promote one Detective to Sergeant in the near future. The promotion will move the Detective into a patrol position. The employee that will be hired to fill the role of the Township's contracted Detective would not have a vehicle allowance within their salary. This is due to a change in policy by Montgomery County whereby all vehicle stipends, per Commissioner’s Court, will be eliminated by 2019 and any new position change requires a county owned vehicle.Therefore the Constable is requesting the Township purchase a vehicle for this position. This Detective is currently assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children’s position funded by the Township.
The promotion is expected to take place in mid-October and according to the County Attorney, the car allowance cannot transfer to an new position change or employee. The Township is currently paying approximately $18,900 annually in car allowance to this position.
It is recommended to fund the purchase of a vehicle as requested by Constable Gable to be funded by positive variances in the 2017 Law Enforcement budget.
