A.   Declaration By Council; Calling For Bids:
      1.   No surplus or obsolete supplies, materials or equipment of any value may be sold until the City Council shall have declared them obsolete or surplus. (1985 Code § 7-107)
      2.   Before the City Manager sells any surplus or obsolete supplies, materials or equipment of a value of more than five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), except as otherwise provided in this chapter, the City Manager shall advertise them for sale in a newspaper of general circulation in the City or give notice in such other manner as the City Manager deems necessary adequately to reach prospective buyers to give them opportunity to make necessary bids. All bids shall be sealed and shall be opened in public at a designated time and place, except when the sale is by auction. The City may repeatedly reject all bids and advertise or give notice again. The City Manager shall sell such supplies, materials or equipment to the highest responsible bidder. In case of a tie, if necessary, the City Manager shall cast lots to determine to whom to sell, or the City Manager may divide the sale among two (2) or more tying, always selling to the highest responsible bidder or bidders. (1985 Code § 7-107; amd. 2007 Code)
   B.   Competitive Bidding Not Required On Certain Sales: The City Manager may sell supplies, materials, and equipment, without giving the opportunity for competitive bidding and after the City Council has declared said supplies, materials, and equipment to be obsolete or surplus, at a price at least as great as that paid by the City for the same.
