BY COUNCILOR LITTLE:

     RESOLVED, that the city of Duluth gives to Officer Brad Wick, of the city of Duluth police department, the police canines Hans and Rocky in recognition of the completion of their years of service to the city.

     BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the appropriate city officials are authorized to execute any documents necessary to transfer ownership of Hans and Rocky to Brad Wick.


STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  Police canines Hans and Rocky are unable to continue to work.
