- Of Counsel
Municipalities are sometimes approached by private organizations for donations of old, unused, lost or abandoned property. The New Jersey Constitution prohibits the donation of public property to private organizations unless it is in furtherance of a public purpose. Otherwise, public property must be sold by a municipality by sealed bid or at public auction depending upon the method by which it was acquired. Authorization for such a sale is done by resolution adopted by the municipal governing body.
