Clark County Board of Supervisors Approves 1st Reading of New Ordinance With an Amendment
Tuesday, October 8th, 2013 -- 8:11 am
Posted by Riley Hebert-News Director

-The Clark County Board of Supervisors approved the first reading of a new ordinance at their meeting on Thursday of last week.

This new ordinance gives the Clark County Sherriff’s Department the ability to dispose of items in their possession that are not subject to a criminal investigation. That would include items like totaled vehicles from accidents.

There was one item in particular in the ordinance that worried the board. In section 2 the ordinance states “items shall be disposed of by any means determined to be in the best interest of the county, including, but not limited to: sale at public auction, acceptance of an offer to purchase in response to a request for competitive bids or proposals; private sale; or donation.”

Many of the supervisors seemed concerned with the private sale part of the ordinance, but the Sheriff’s Department tried to assure them that they were referring to selling their totaled automobiles to a local scrap dealer, as an example.

But, the board first tried to make an amendment saying that county employees can’t purchase or receive any property from a sale regarding this ordinance. That failed, however, with 11 voting no and 6 voting yes.

The board then approved an amendment, 16 yes and 7 no, to keep the wording of private sale in the ordinance, but putting “no private sales allowed” right after it. When Sheriff Greg Herrick brought up the selling of cars to scrap dealers, he was chastised by a supervisor telling him that he could take it to others and not always the same one.

The board passed the first reading of the resolution with 24 voting yes and 1 voting no.
