§                     The Charlotte Area Transit Systems (CATS) currently has a bus shelter that is no longer in condition for continued use by CATS.

§                     Lake Wylie Christian Assembly, a nonprofit organization incorporated by the State of South Carolina and recognized by the U.S. Department of Treasury as a 501(c)(3) entity under the Internal Revenue Code, has requested the surplus shelter.

§                     North Carolina General Statute 160A-280 permits the city to convey surplus or obsolete personal property to a nonprofit organization incorporated by one of the United States.

§                     Equipment that has reached the end of its useful life and has a fair market value less than $5,000 may be disposed of pursuant to locally authorized methods with no reimbursement required to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

§                     The bus shelter was purchased in January of 2012 for $8,846.17 and financed, in whole or part, with FTA funds.

§                     The bus shelter reached the end of its useful life and was removed in November 2022, as it no longer met “state of good repair” requirements set by the FTA.

§                     Lake Wylie Christian Assembly has agreed to accept the bus shelter in its “as is” condition and will be responsible for transporting the shelter to the desired location.
