Agenda Item: VIII.K.

Consider/Approve Request to Declare Property Surplus and Dispose Via Most Economical Method

Background Information:

South Fulton Middle/High School has submitted a request to the Board to declare surplus football uniforms that are no longer of any use to the School due to age. Furthermore, South Fulton Middle/High School requests permission to sell the uniforms and for the funds to be deposited to the school’s athletic fund to help offset the cost of future purchases. The value of the uniforms is less than the amount specified in TCA §49-6-2007(d)(1), which provides, “Surplus personal property in local school systems which has no value or has a value less than two hundred fifty dollars ($250), may be disposed of without the necessity of bids as required by this section.” Therefore, pending Board approval, no bids will be solicited to dispose of this personal property.

Staff Recommendation:

I recommend the Board declare the above-noted items as surplus and approve the disposition via the most economical method as described above.
