BICYCLE THEFTS IN SANTA CRUZ HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM OVER THE YEARS.  THE BIKES, AS WELL AS BIKE PARTS,  WERE OFTEN SOLD IN EXCHANGE FOR DRUG MONEY  IN 1996, A PROGRAM WAS STARTED TO ENSURE THAT THE UNCLAIMED, RECOVERED BIKES WENT TO GOOD USE. SEVERAL NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS WERE GIVEN THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE, AND REDISTRIBUTE THE BIKES TO LOCAL YOUTH.  HOWEVER,  OVER THE YEARS,  PROBLEMS AROSE BETWEEN THE CITY AND THESE ORGANIZATIONS.  THIS PROMPTED A SHUT-DOWN OF THE PROGRAM IN 2012.    IN JULY, AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE CITY MANAGER’S OFFICE WAS ISSUED, STATING THAT,  FORMAL REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS TO RUN THE PROGRAM WILL BE PUBLISHED THIS FALL.  FUTURE DISTRIBUTORS MUST BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY RAPPORT WITH CITY STAFF AND ADHERE TO THE RULES THAT WILL GOVERN THE PROGRAM.
