Dianda Supports Better Equipment for Local Gov’ts

State Representative Scott Dianda testified on behalf of legislation he introduced in December to require the Michigan Department of Transportation to first offer snow removal equipment for auction to local governments before offering it to the general public. The bill was introduced with 51 bipartisan co-sponsoring signatures, including the entire House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. Some local governments are currently using snow plows from the 1970s, while MDOT is auctioning off its more current equipment to the public through a site called MiBid, an internet bidding site much like eBay. This site makes it feasible and affordable to offer selected property to local governments before opening the bidding to the general public.
