House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session

From: Representative Jim Marshall
To: All House members
Subject: Purchase of Used Municipal Equipment
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation which would amend the First Class Township Code to make it easier for municipal officials to purchase used equipment from another governmental unit.

Generally under the local government codes, municipal officials must advertise and bid contracts over $10,000. One exception to this requirement is to purchase used equipment, vehicles parts, etc. from a public utility. My legislation would expand this provision to include the purchase of used equipment, vehicles, parts, etc. from another municipality, a county, school district, municipal authority, council of government or the state or Federal government. I believe this legislation will facilitate the reused of serviceable equipment and should help municipalities save money. This legislation was suggested by municipal officials in my legislative district.

Thank you and I hope you will consider joining me in support of this legislation.

Introduced as HB669
