Did you ever wonder what happens to the old City of Montgomery vehicles and equipment, such as police cruisers, fire trucks, pick-up trucks, dump trucks, computers, lawnmowers and other things that have passed their useful life?

These items are submitted for review during a Government Affairs Committee of City Council Committee meeting. Staff officially asks the committee to approve these items for disposal.

Once declared as surplus, the City of Montgomery uses an online auction service called GovDeals to dispose of items. Residents can bid on items from Montgomery and many other municipalities at www.govdeals.com. Auctions take place every day.
