Eagle River Water & Sanitation District selling two trucks, pressure washer
AVON — The Eagle River Water & Sanitation District is selling two 4-by-4 utility trucks and a pressure washer using the Public Surplus online auction service. Bidding closes at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 19.
“As a local government, we want to provide water and wastewater services at a reasonable cost to our taxpayers and ratepayers,” said Gusty Kanakis, fleet and facilities maintenance coordinator.
“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 vehicles are replaced after about 110,000 miles; equipment is replaced based on age, hours run or operational needs. Any interested party should sign up as a registered buyer on the Public Surplus website, where they can also view the district page showing current auction items with pictures and vehicle information.
