WHEREAS, the police department currently has in its possession nine bicycles which have been abandoned in the Village over the past few years; and,
WHEREAS, the police department has made a reasonable effort to identify the owners of these bicycles without success; and,
WHEREAS, selling these bicycles at public auction will likely result in higher expenses than the proceeds will cover; and
WHEREAS, the Salvation Army has a program in place which will place these bicycles into the hands of children in Licking County, who otherwise could not afford to purchase a bicycle, at the end of year holiday time.
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF GRANVILLE, OHIO, that:
Section I: The police department is hereby authorized to donate the bicycles currently in its possession to the Salvation Army.
Section II: This resolution shall take effect immediately upon passage.
