Facilities Management and LogisticsProperty Management is Clearing Lab Bike Racks of Dilapidated and Abandoned Bikes
Property Management staff will be clearing all bikes that appear to be abandoned or are dilapidated from the bike racks located around the lab. Clearing the abandoned and unusable bikes will make it easier for individuals who are or would like to use their bikes to find space to park their bikes. They have started by removing a number of bikes (rusting, flat tires, etc.) from the bike rack at the entrance to the TED Building, Bldg. 55. Over the next couple weeks, all of the other bike racks will be checked for dilapidated and unusable bikes. The bikes will be held in the Central Material Storage Area (CMSA) for 30 days. After that, any unclaimed bikes will be put on the federal government’s Excess Property website and sold as surplus property. If your bike is picked up and you want to reclaim it, contact Tim Wagner at email@example.com, x7348, or Christian Whalen at firstname.lastname@example.org, x5899.
