There is created and established a special fund to be known as the “drug enforcement fund” into which all moneys and proceeds from the sale of property seized during drug investigations and forfeited pursuant to RCW 69.50.505 and all other applicable state laws shall be deposited after amounts are deducted in accordance with state laws. (Ord. 1158 § 2, 2009; Ord. 535 § 1, 1988).

3.30.020 Purposes – Expenditures.

This fund has been established for the purpose of accumulating funds for expansion or improvement of law enforcement services including drug enforcement needs, drug awareness educational purposes and the purchase, lease and maintenance of equipment and other items necessary for drug enforcement by the police department. The moneys deposited in the drug enforcement fund shall be expended only for such purposes and for no other purpose when appropriated by the city council and shall not supplant preexisting funding sources. (Ord. 535 § 1, 1988).

3.30.030 Unexpended funds.

(Ord. 535 § 1, 1988).
