Surplus property belonging to the City of Yuma is disposed of in a manner as required by state law and the Yuma City Charter through public auctions, competitive sealed bids or other appropriate methods. Items to be auctioned are generally in fair condition but are no longer needed due to such reasons as changes in usage or passing their budgeted life span. Other items came into City ownership through having become evidence in criminal cases.
