|Meeting Date:||May 16, 2006||Primary Staff Contact:||Lee Tuneberg|

|Estimate Time:||15 Minutes|
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 2.50.090 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. This is in addition to the surplus requests approved by Council on May 2, 2006.
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 proposed Manner of Disposal is a sealed bid auction. The auction will be scheduled pending the approval of the City Council. There are advertising requirements for the sealed bid auction process; the auction will be scheduled for a date in May or June of 2006 that allows the City to meet those advertising requirements.
A follow-up report to this request will be prepared when the listed items are gone.
