ARTESIA — The Artesia Special Hospital District board of directors and Artesia General Hospital are hoping to hold an auction soon on some personal property that needs to go.
That was the word given Monday night by the ASHD during its November meeting.
Board member Gary Sims said the matter was brought to everyone’s attention by AGH CEO Bob Tyk in a letter sent last month.
“In order to get rid of it, we must go through the proper procedures,” Sims said.
Sims told his fellow members that there are statutes on how to get rid of property that has been termed as outdated or obsolete.
“Once we make that determination, we get rid of it (and) we have to take board action (on a possible auction),” Sims said.
Sims said the board needed to take action to authorize a competitive sale of the unwanted items. He then made the motion for the board to approve a proposed auction. He said a notice of the disposal needs to be sent to the state auditor.
Jef Butcher seconded the motion and the measure passed.
The board also reviewed and approved an annual audit report by the Albuquerque accounting firm of Ricci and Co.
“There was no serious findings of consequence,” said board vice chairman Mike Deans.
