Contracts, Purchasing & Surplus Inventory

Surplus Property Information

Sales are offered to the public when enough stock becomes available (generally 4-11 per year). To purchase items you must submit a sealed bid during one of the sales. If, at the conclusion of the sale, you are the high bidder we will contact you by phone so pickup can be scheduled. Successful bidders must pick up all items within 3 working days of notification. Send an email to Jason Bakeman to be added to the Surplus Sale Mailing List.
