Members of the Verona City Council voted to put several items up for bid during their May meeting.
Aldermen opted to put up a Glock handgun, originally purchased for the police department, up for bid with the sale contingent upon a clear background check.
Other items offered for sale include a white van-style ambulance, an old tanker truck, a white 1957 International S-160 fire truck, and non-working computer components.
Aldermen also approved transfer of a permit from American Dehydrated Foods to Kermin Industries, effective July 1 of this year.
Council members approved a one-time cost of $800 to purchase Sullivan Publications Quickcode, a high-speed search and retrieval data program containing Verona's city codes.
In other business, Mayor Lloyd Airrington presented aldermen with a letter concerning a private crossing into the city's sewer plant. Closing the access currently used would eliminate city workers crossing the railroad tracks to reach the plant. A representative from Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF) discussed the matter with aldermen, stating the railroad would pay to build an alternate road. Aldermen approved the $600 expenditure to apply to BNSF for a private crossing into the plant.
