Highway Dept. to auction off surplus vehicles
Placeholder Image

Road Superintendent Levie Glenn has asked members of the county’s Financial Management Committee to allow his department to sell surplus equipment at a local auction instead of listing the items online.
“I would like to give local people a chance to buy if they are interested,” said Glenn. “By putting these items in a local auction, local residents will have a chance to bid. I would like them to go to local people, if they want them.”
The committee has previously placed surplus items online at www.govdeals.com. Dennis Baird, a Finance Department bookkeeper, said the items placed on govdeals.com have generated much interest in the past.
The highway department has a 1975 John Deere tractor, two 1995 Ford Aerostar vans, a 1995 Ford F250 4X4 pickup, and a 1985 Ford F700 two-ton flatbed truck.
The committee voted to approve Glenn’s request and allow a local auctioneer sell the vehicles. Glenn said he hopes to add the surplus items to a local realtor’s auction, preferably before the weather turns too cold.
