Q Does state law allow a municipality to transfer a law enforcement boat and trailer, purchased with federal funds, to a county sheriff’s office?

A Section 31-7-13(m)(vi) authorizes the transfer of property from one governmental entity to another at a price below fair market value, if the seller makes a finding that a sale below fair market value is in the best interest of the taxpayers of the state. This is without regard to the source of funds, but your grant restrictions and federal rules should be consulted to determine whether or not the transfer may be made.
