 7        (55 ILCS 5/5-1015.1)
 8        Sec.  5/5-1015.1.  Whenever  a  county  owns any personal
 9    property which in the opinion of a  simple  majority  of  the
10    corporate  authorities  then  holding  office,  is  no longer
11    necessary or useful to, or for  the  best  interests  of  the
12    county,  such  a  majority  of the corporate authorities then
13    holding office, at any regular  meeting  or  at  any  special
14    meeting  called  for  that  purpose,  (1)  by  ordinance  may
15    authorize  the  sale of that personal property in such manner
16    as they may designate, with or without advertising the  sale,
17    or  (2)  may  authorize  any officer to convert that personal
18    property into some other form that is useful to the county by
19    using the material in  the  personal  property,  or  (3)  may
20    authorize  any  officer  to  convey  or turn in any specified
21    article of  personal  property  as  part  payment  on  a  new
22    purchase of any similar article. However, no article shall be
23    turned  in  as  part  of  the  purchase price on any purchase
24    except upon receipt of competitive bids, in  such  manner  as
25    may  be  prescribed by ordinance, after notice to all bidders
26    that the article will be turned over as part of the  purchase
27    price.
