RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING DISTRIBUTION OF SURPLUS DEFIBRILLATORS AND A CONTRACT THEREFORE.

BY COUNCILOR LITTLE:

BE IT RESOLVED, that the proper city officials are authorized to execute and implement contracts, in substantially the same form and containing substantially the same terms as that contract on file with the city clerk as Public Document No. __________, with SMDC and first responder agencies that receive Duluth's surplus defibrillators for the possession and use of defibrillators, and proper city officials are authorized to allow SMDC to recondition the city's surplus defibrillators and give them to government agencies that need them.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  SMDC will accept the city's out-of-service defibrillators, recondition them, and distribute them to fire departments in our area that need them. The city has received new defibrillators. This program saves the city money because it does not have to pay to dispose of the surplus defibrillators.
