A. Whenever any motor vehicle belonging to the City, whether being operated by a City employee or not, becomes involved in an accident resulting in injury or death to any person or damage to the City vehicle or property of another, the operator of the City vehicle or the person to whom the vehicle is assigned or chargeable, shall, not later than the next normal day of business following the date of the accident, forward a complete written report of such accident, in triplicate, to the Bureau of Property Control upon forms furnished by the City. The Property Control Officer shall forward one copy of every report so filed, to the office of the City Attorney not later than the next normal day of business following the day of the filing;

B. Whenever the original report and duplicate is insufficient in the opinion of the Property Control Officer of the City Attorney, supplemental reports of accidents may be required of the person or persons chargeable therefor;

C. Whenever the driver of a vehicle involved in an accident is injured thereby so as to be incapable of making a required accident report and there was another City employee occupant in the vehicle at the time of the accident capable of making a report, such occupant shall make or cause the report to be made.

3.84.020 Form of Report.

The Bureau of Property Control shall prepare or otherwise provide, and upon request supply to the various departments and bureaus of the City, forms for accident reports required in Section 3.84.010.

In no event shall any vehicle be repaired by other than a City owned and operated repair shop unless and until the Purchasing Agent of the City shall have first obtained at least three independent estimates of cost of repair, and in such event the repair work shall be awarded to the lowest responsible bidder.

3.84.050 Billing of Charges.

No request for billing of charges for repair of motor vehicles damaged as defined in this Chapter shall be forwarded to the Auditor as in Section 5.48.040 provided, until the validity thereof based upon determination of liability shall have first been approved by the City Attorney.
