Port Jervis City Auctions
Off Four Surplus Vehicles

PORT JERVIS — The City of Port Jervis has approved the sale of four different surplus city vehicles.
The Common Council for the City met this past Monday for their first meeting for the month of May.
Among the numerous items on the meeting's agenda, the council had to approve several motions regarding four surplus city vehicles.
Among the four vehicles are a 2002 Ford Bus, as well as a 2009 and 2012 Dodge Charger that were both used by the Port Jervis Police Department.
The vehicles were declared surplus and are considered no longer usable for municipal purposes for different departments in the city.
Either because they no longer serve their purpose needed or because they are in need of severe repair work that and aren't worth the investment. The council ultimately approved an auction house bid that goes after all the vehicles at over $7,000 total.
Outside of approving the sale of the vehicles, the Common Council put out a notice to anyone who is interested in being a lifeguard to contact the office of the recreation department.
The council says that they are in desperate need of people to fill vacant lifeguard positions. Not doing so could result in West End Beach being unable to open until the spots are filled.
"The recreation department is still looking for seasonal help. Especially lifeguards," said 2nd Ward Councilwoman Chandler Campbell. "We need lifeguards in order to be able to open the beach. If you are interested, please contact us at the office of the recreation department."
