The Procurement Department is also responsible for disposing of the City's surplus property through its auctions. For the larger items, the City utilizes the services of GovDeals electronic auction site, while items confiscated or recovered by the City's Police Department are listed on the Property Room electronic auction site. Both GovDeals and the Property Room provide web-based venue for governmental agencies to sell surplus assets via the Internet. The City also holds an annual auction for smaller items, usually in September. The date and time of this annual auction is advertised in the local newspaper.
