    Request for an exemption to the State Surplus Personal Property Policy allowing the agency to donate property to a seasonal employee. The Department of Parks and Recreation has a 1969 mobile home that was initially donated to the agency. The agency anticipates terminating the lease on the land where the mobile home resides. The mobile home has a value of less than it would cost to have the unit hauled to a disposal sight.
