r2751R E S O L U T I O N NO. 2751 WHEREAS, it was the suggestion of a District employee that the District donate its technologically obsolete cellular phones that have no residual value to the “Cell Phones for Soldiers” program; and the donation of these cell phones is in recognition of five MSD colleagues who have served past and present in “Operation Freedom”. WHEREAS, the customary Information Systems’ procedure is to re- deploy cell phones within the District as long as they have value and are not obsolete. When the phone becomes obsolete, the Information Systems department attempts to return the device to the vendor/provider for trade-in credit on a newer model cellular phone. WHEREAS, these ninety-three (93) cell phones are older model cell phones and have no trade-in value for the District. WHEREAS, pursuant to Section Seventeen (c) of Ordinance No. 9845 as adopted April 18, 1996; if approved by the Board of Trustees, said surplus cell phones may be donated to political divisions or subdivisions of the State of Missouri, public school districts, federal education institution, federal public health and federal civil defense institutions and organizations and other non- profit philanthropic private organizations, and WHEREAS, it is the intention of the Board of Trustees that said surplus cell phones be offered to the “Cell Phones for Soldiers” program, a non-profit philanthropic private organization located in Norwell, Massachusetts. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE METROPOLITAN ST. LOUIS SEWER DISTRICT, That the surplus cell phones as generated by the District and determined to have no trade-in value and are obsolete, be offered to the “Cell Phones for Soldiers” program, a non-profit philanthropic private organization located in Norwell, Massachusetts. The foregoing Resolution was adopted December 13, 2007.
