Recovered bicycles deemed surplus

GRANDVIEW - The City Council voted Monday to allow the Grandview Police Department to deem 16 bicycles recovered over the past year as surplus.

The police department will donate those bikes to charity.

City Administrator Jim Sewell said donating the recovered bikes to a charity is an annual event for the city.

Some council members expressed their concern that the bikes' rightful owners may not get a chance to identify the bikes before they are given away.

Concerns were also expressed about the shape the bikes are in when they're given away.

Councilwoman Joan Souders said volunteers help repair many of the bikes before they're given to a charity.
