  • public or electronic auction either locally or remotely through a third party 
  • competitive sealed bidding 
  • donation to another governmental nonprofit or charitable entity 
  • scrapping of items which have no resale value, have security-related disposal issues, or the cost of handling exceeds the estimated proceeds. 

The proceeds from any transactions noted above shall be recorded as general fund revenue.
