The Greenville City Council voted to approve a resolution to transfer the titles of three vehicles, deemed as surplus property, during a meeting held Dec. 12.

Under Resolution 2022-75, one vehicle title for a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria belonging to the Greenville Police Department transfers to the Lowndes County coroner. The Town of Georgiana receives a title for a 1991 Pierce Pumper ladder truck, while the Butler County Forestry Planning Commission receives the title for a 1995 cargo trailer.

The latter two vehicles previously belonged to the Greenville Fire Department.

“The Mayor of Georgiana is planning on declaring (its) ladder truck surplus, and after getting ours, the Town of Georgiana will donate (its) ladder truck to the Town of McKenzie,” McLendon said.

The city declared the surplus items under Section 11-43-56 of the 1975 Alabama Code authorizing the City to dispose of the unneeded property. Declaring the items surplus and drafting the resolution made the transfer of the items possible.

McLendon said Greenville no longer needed the property for municipal use.

Ownership of these properties were transferred at no charge to the recipients.
