Revision to Board Policy 6.12

The Board of Trustees has  approved a revision to Policy 6.12 – Disposal of Capital Assets.  The change to this policy is to place a threshold on items that require board authorization to sell or dispose of, based on the estimated market value of the item.  This change will allow the College to promptly dispose of surplus and obsolete items that can no longer be of use to the College.
