Council discusses auctioning surplus city equipment
The Fairfield City Council unanimously approved the sale of surplus city owned equipment during Monday night’s meeting.
City administrator Mike Harmon told council members that department heads had decided that the items were of no further public benefit to the city.
Harmon said most of the items were seized by the police department and included two vehicles that have been since replaced, a trash pump, jack hammer and dry erase board.
Harmon said Fairfield streets superintendent Darrel Bisgard had found an auction where the items could be sold.
“We pay, I believe it’s a 10 percent listing fee and the auctioneer retains 10 percent of the sale,” Harmon said.
The auction will be held Dec. 5.
In other news, after a public hearing about entering into an agreement with Vastu Partners, LLC, council members unanimously agreed, and approved the execution of that agreement.
A public hearing is set for 7 p.m. Nov. 28 for the annexation of a portion of North Campus Village Phase 5.
The Ledger will have more information about Monday’s city council meeting later this week.
