Heavy equipment auction runs June 21-30

A variety of heavy equipment is up for sale using the Public Surplus online auction service. Bidding opens at 8 a.m. June 21 and closes at 6 p.m. June 30, 2016.


Fleet and facilities maintenance coordinator Gusty Kanakis said, “As a local government, we want to provide water and wastewater services at a reasonable cost to our taxpayers and ratepayers. Using Public Surplus reduces district costs associated with selling used assets and it also broadens the buyer pool, which helps ensure the best value out of vehicles and equipment that were used to provide our community with these essential services.”


Auction items were used in everyday operations and were regularly maintained. District equipment is replaced based on age, hours run, or operational needs.


Interested parties should sign up as a registered buyer on the Public Surplus website, where they can also view the district page showing current auction items.


Kanakis manages the auction and is available through the Public Surplus website for questions. Bidders may arrange to inspect auction items between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, by contacting Kanakis at 970-477-5429. Test drives are not allowed for insurance reasons.
