         considered to be excess to County needs. The Department of General Services is
         requesting that this property be declared surplus and be offered for sale to the highest
         bidder.


     4/8/03                                                                                    5

         The Fiscal Year 2002-03 adopted operation plan for the Fleet Services Internal Service
         Fund provides for the purchase of approximately 100 law enforcement patrol vehicles
         for use in the Sheriff’s Department. These patrol vehicles have been ordered and are
         starting to be received; however they are required to be equipped with a significant
         amount of after market equipment including emergency lighting, security screens,
         mobile data terminals, weapon mounts and communication equipment. The installation
         of this equipment is very unique and specialized and historically has been outsourced.



     4/8/03                                                                                  6

           procurement of certain emergency equipment and the use of one outfitting vendor for a
           period of 5 years (ending June 30, 2007) because of these specialized requirements.
           This Board action also indicated that the Sheriff’s, Purchasing and Contracting and
           General Services departments would continue to identify additional equipment and
           vendors for outfitting patrol vehicles. This is a request to add one additional outfitting
           vendor, Thunderworks Mobile Engineering, and one console manufacturer, JottoDesk,
           to the list of approved vendors to be used on a sole source basis.

          FISCAL IMPACT:
          No change in funding results from this request for sole source procurement to outfit law
          enforcement vehicles. Funds for the procured service are budgeted. The funding source
          is the Fleet Services Internal Service Fund-Vehicle Acquisition. Budgeted resources
          related to this request include $195,580 in current year costs, $612,580 in annual costs
          and no addition of any staff years.

16.         SUBJECT:          OPERATION YELLOW RIBBON (DISTRICT: ALL)

            OVERVIEW:
            Generations of military men and women have deployed from San Diego to a future
            certain of nothing but service to Country. During times of conflict, loved ones on the
            American homefront often symbolize the safe return of U.S. servicemen and women by
            tying yellow ribbons around trees, mailboxes and other structures. Some 55,000
            Marines and sailors from Diego County now are taking part in military action in Iraq.
            They are the heart of the 105,000 Navy and Marine personnel who call San Diego
            home. They are our co-workers, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters.

            As we anticipate the swift return of American troops, we look forward to the days when
            thousands will sail around Point Loma, past the County Administration Center, into the
            safe harbor of San Diego Bay. Today’s action would continue the thoughtful tradition of
            the yellow ribbon by installing a large yellow ribbon on the exterior of the County
            Administration Center tower.

            FISCAL IMPACT:
            There is no fiscal impact associated with the proposal.

            RECOMMENDATION:
            CHAIRMAN COX AND VICE CHAIRWOMAN JACOB:
            Approve the installation of a large yellow ribbon on the exterior of the County
            Administration Center tower as a demonstration of the County of San Diego’s support
            for military families and our hopes for the safe and swift return of the members of the
            United States Armed Forces from service in Iraq.

            ACTION:
            Adding a recommendation to accept the donations from the Sycuan Band of the
            Kumeyaay Nation and Operation Home Front, ON MOTION of Supervisor Jacob,
            seconded by Supervisor Cox, the Board of Supervisors took action as recommended.

            AYES: Cox, Jacob, Slater, Roberts, Horn
