Title
CONSIDER ADOPTING RESOLUTION NO. 20-170, AUTHORIZING THE SERVICES OF KEN PORTER AUCTIONS TO FACILITATE THE SURPLUS OF TWO (2) CITY BUSES (CITY COUNCIL)

I. SUMMARY

Vehicle 1032, a 2003 Prevost coach bus and Vehicle 1217, a 2009 El Dorado shuttle bus, are being recommended for City surplus due to their age, condition, and diminished need. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Vehicle 1032 was used primarily for City excursions on an average of 1-2 times per month.
