Before the City Manager sells any surplus or obsolete supplies, materials or equipment, except as otherwise provided in section 7-108 of this chapter, he shall advertise them for sale in a newspaper of general circulation in the City or give notice in such other manner as he deems necessary adequately to reach prospective buyers to give them opportunity to make bids.
