Water district to hold an equipment auction

Daily staff report

AVON — The Eagle River Water & Sanitation District has a variety of heavy equipment up for sale using the Public Surplus online auction service. Bidding is open now and closes at 6 p.m. June 30.

Gusty Kanakis, fleet and facilities maintenance coordinator, 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 and 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 can answer questions through the Public Surplus website. Bidders can 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.

The highest bid submitted for each item that meets or exceeds the reserve amount will be the winning bidder, who will be notified directly by Public Surplus. Winners will pay their winning bid plus a 10 percent handling fee that is charged by Public Surplus. For more information, go to http://www.erwsd.org.
