SUBJECT:

Title

Commission District(s): All Commissioner Districts

Donation of Surplus Vehicle to Warren Technical School

Body

 

Information Contact: Robert L. Gordon

Phone Number: (404) 297-3280                     

 

PURPOSE:

To approve the donation of one of DeKalb County’s surplus vehicle - unit number 12708 (2011 Chevrolet Impala) to Warren Technical School, 3075 Alton Rd, Atlanta, GA 30341.

 

NEED/IMPACT:

Warren Technical School prepares students with self-advocacy, life and employability skills through research-based instruction and career exploration.  This vehicle will be utilized as a part of the school’s automotive curriculum to provide hands on experience to students learning automotive skills.  DeKalb Fleet Management has over 15 years of partnering with Warren Tech to provide work-based learning to Warren Tech’s automotive students.  A more advanced model vehicle is needed as a part of their classroom training for the students to gain more practical knowledge in their studies of automotive repairs. Warren Tech students work at DeKalb County through a work-based learning program and some are hired after they complete their training.  This vehicle will allow Warren Tech to conduct the initial training for students and reduce the level of training performed by DeKalb.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

This unit (value $1,500.00) is already in Fleet Management’s surplus inventory due to age and condition and no additional cost is involved in releasing this unit

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Recommended Action

To approve the donation and authorize the chief executive officer to execute all necessary documents for the donation of this vehicle to Warren Technical School.
