|This Council action authorizes the Purchasing Agent (Finance Director) to dispose of in an appropriate fashion, personal property owned by the City and deemed surplus by the custodial department(s).|
|Section 2.52.070 of the AMC authorizes the Purchasing Agent to dispose
of surplus personal property by any means determined to be in the best interests
of the City. If such property has a residual value greater than $10,000,
City Council authorization will be obtained prior to disposal.
Attached is a list of personal property purchased or acquired through normal city operations that has been considered surplus by the custodial department. The custodial department(s) has already checked with other departments to ensure no other part of the agency has a bona fide need for the items listed.
The Manner of Disposal column identifies how the piece of equipment is expected to be disposed. This may change depending on the circumstances at the time of transaction with staff being mindful of the cost to liquidate and the net proceeds. A preference is given to other government agencies if an amount near the estimated value can be obtained. Trade-ins are done when replacing the unit garners adequate proceeds for the old item.
A follow-up report to this list will be prepared when the new items listed are gone.

2. Approve the disposal but by some other means.
3. Deny disposal until some future date.
