File #: 1153-2019    Version: 1
Type: Ordinance Status: Passed
File created: 4/18/2019 In control: Public Safety Committee
On agenda: 5/13/2019 Final action: 5/15/2019
Title: To authorize and direct the Finance and Management Director to sell to Sergeant Mark Cartwright, for the sum of $1.00, a police canine with the registered name of “Lilo” which has no further value to the Division of Police; and to waive the provisions of City Code Chapter 329 Sale of City-owned personal property. ($1.00)
Explanation

“Lilo” a police canine that has been in service with the Division of Police’s Canine Unit for four and a half years needs to be retired.

“Lilo’s” handler is retiring effective May 17, 2019. Lilo is nearly 6.5 years old and has a tenacious temperament. Retraining him with a novice handler would be inadvisable and economically impractical due to his age and short remaining service life. It would be in the best interest of the Division to take “Lilo” out of service and retire him.

It is recommended that “Lilo” be sold to Sergeant Mark Cartwright, who is “Lilo’s” handler.

Additionally, the Division of Police Legal Bureau has developed a general release document that relinquishes the City of Columbus from any liability as it relates to the post retirement care and control of “Lilo”, and assigns that liability to Sergeant Mark Cartwright.

FISCAL IMPACT:
This ordinance authorizes the sale of a Police canine for one dollar to Sergeant Mark Cartwright. Funds have previously been approved for the purchase of a replacement canine.
