Title

Resolution relative to authorizing the single source purchase of a police canine and the corresponding training for the canine and handler for a sum of $14,000.00 from Southern Police Canine.

 

Body

WHEREAS, K9 Sonny was placed into service on May 3rd, 2010 at the age of 22 months after being purchased and partnered with Cpl. Zientek, and,

 

WHEREAS, K9 Sonny is now 10 ½  years old and is reaching the end of his useful working career, and through conversations between Sonny’s veterinarian, master trainers, his handler (Det. Zientek) and K9 Unit Supervisor (Lt. Mike Kempinski), it has been concluded that now would be an appropriate time to retire Sonny; and,

 

WHEREAS, the West Allis Police K9 unit has received a quote from Southern Police Canine, from whom they have purchased canines and training previously, with great success; and,

 

WHEREAS, the Purchasing Department has researched the vendor pricing and offering of $14,000 for a dual purpose (Patrol & Narcotics) seasoned Belgian Malinois canine including six weeks of training for both the canine and handler to be fair and reasonable; and,

 

WHEREAS this initiative will be funded from the K9 account, an account that is funded through community donations and fundraising efforts by K9 handlers.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Mayor and Common Council of the City of West Allis that the purchase of the above described items, for an amount not to exceed $14,000.00, is hereby authorized.  Funding for the project will be from Account #215-0801-521.64-05.
