circulation in a county in which the district or any part thereof is
situated. The board shall sell the property to the highest
responsible bidder or reject all bids.
   (b) The governing board may choose to conduct any sale of personal
property authorized under this section by means of a public auction
conducted by employees of the district or other public agencies, or

the district employee responsible for conducting the auction the
authority to transfer the personal property to the highest
responsible bidder upon completion of the auction and after payment
has been received by the district.



81450.5.  Notwithstanding Sections 81450 and 81452, a community

school purposes, that it should be disposed of for the purpose of
replacement, or that it is unsatisfactory or not suitable for school
use.
   (b) The property is exchanged with, or sold or donated to, a
school district, community college district, or other public entity
that has had an opportunity to examine the property proposed to be

employee of the district empowered for that purpose by the board.
   (b) Any item or items of property having previously been offered
for sale pursuant to Section 81450, but for which no qualified bid

   (c) If the board, by a unanimous vote of those members present,
finds that the property is of insufficient value to defray the costs

the property being disposed of by the district, plus any applicable
tax.


81456.  The governing board of any community college district may,
when calling for bids and letting contracts for constructing new
