Authorizing the Fire Department to donate obsolete foam to Magellan Midstream Partners.



WHEREAS, the Saint Paul Fire Department has 500-800 gallons of old foam that is no longer needed for fire department purposes, and

WHEREAS, the foam is expired and considered hazardous waste and it would cost $8,000 to properly dispose of the foam; and

WHEREAS, Saint Paul Administrative Code § 2.02(G)(6)(g) directs the appropriate method of disposal of surplus property; and

WHEREAS, Magellan Midstream Partners is willing to take the foam for no cost, and the City would save money by donating the foam to them; and

WHEREAS, no other organizations have indicated any interest in the foam; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the City Council finds that it is in the best interests of the City to donate the foam and save the cost of disposal, and hereby authorizes the donation of the above described obsolete property to Magellan Midstream Partners; and be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, that said organization shall take responsibility for removing obsolete property from City premises in a manner and in accordance with the time line mutually agreed upon with the Saint Paul Fire Department and shall bear all costs associated with the removal and transportation of the designated obsolete property and agrees to accept the property as is; and be it

FINALLY RESOLVED, that upon the donation, the City shall have no further responsibility for said property and shall not provide any warranty, maintenance, repair, technical assistance, or any other kind of ongoing support, nor assume any cost that may be related to the ongoing use of the property by Magellan Midstream Partners.
