Surplus Equipment Auctions
Donation of Surplus Equipment
North Carolina General Statures 160A-280 gives authority to local governments to donate to another governmental unit within the United States, a sister city, or a nonprofit organization upon adoption of resolution by the City Council. A public notice must be been made of at least five (5) days prior to the adoption of a resolution approving the donation.
Surplus equipment typically includes cars, trucks, heavy equipment and miscellaneous small equipment that the City no longer needs or uses. The City of Raleigh is no longer conducting auctions for disposal of surplus equipment. Most surplus equipment is now either consigned to the North Carolinas State Surplus Agency or sold by online auction via GovDeals.
