Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: January 4, 2017 03:52 PM
From: Senator John R. Gordner
To: All Senate members
Subject: 2nd Class Township Amendment--Personal Property
I plan on introducing legislation to update Section 1504 of the 2nd Class Township Code that addresses the selling of township personal property without requesting bids. Presently if the township wants to sell personal property that has a market value of less than $1,000, the township may sell the property without public notice and the acceptance of bids as long as the township had previously adopted a procedure for the disposal of personal property under the stated threshold. The amount of $1,000 was last changed in 1996 and has not seen an increase in 20 years. My legislation would increase the threshold to $2,000.

Please join me in cosponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as SB365
