December 12, 2012 - From a commercial refrigerator and grill to a pickup truck and computers, Independence Township has identified items that aren't in use and could be sold or repurposed.
Currently, department directors are charged with finding ways to get rid of extra assets, but "it's hard for them to take time away from their responsibilities to try and figure out how much money I should get for this item and how should I sell it," said Treasurer Paul Brown.
The Board of Trustees authorized Brown to establish an Asset Disposal Committee (ADC) made up of township residents and one elected official. The ADC would put together an inventory of the various departments' assets and determine how the items would be sold or repurposed.
