Bid Title: 2018-14 Surplus Sale - Jet A Fuel
Category: Open Bids
Status: Open

Description:

The City owns a storage tank at the airport dedicated to Jet A fuel.  Several months ago the pump on this tank stopped working and the fuel is no longer usable in aircraft.  This fuel can be used as a substitute for off-road diesel and it does have value.  The fuel has taken on water.  At least two parties have shown interest in acquiring the fuel.  Because it has been established the fuel has monetary value, it is an asset of the City and to dispose of it, the Council has declared it an unneeded and/or unusable asset. 

 

It is believed there is currently 2,166 gallons of fuel in the tank.  There will be approximately 100-650 gallons of fuel completely lost because not all of it can be pumped out using the tanks electric pump.  The person purchasing the fuel must pay State sales tax of 6.5% to the City, which will then remit same to the State.  Purchaser will be required to sign they understand the fuel has water in it and the City assumes no responsibility for its use.
