Surplus Personal Property Report
Staff resource: Randy Harrington, Chief Financial Officer, 704-336-5013,  
Management and Financial Services facilitates the disposal of the city’s end-of-life surplus property through the Asset Recovery & Disposal (ARD) program. The ARD program maximizes the value of end-of-life property by employing different disposal strategies that may vary depending upon the asset type and condition. One of the disposal tools includes allowing the declaration of single items or groups of personal property items valued at $30,000 or less as surplus with disposal through a competitive process. 

Linked below is a semi-annual report that details the property sold or exchanged, to whom it was sold, or with whom it was exchanged and the amount of money or other consideration received for each sale or exchange.
