Huge County Auction Upcoming

Huge County Auction Upcoming

 

The most interesting county auction of the year is on the way.

Clark County and several public agencies will host the last and largest government surplus auction of the year at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19.

The popular auctions are held three times annually at a county storage lot at 4320 Stephanie St., off Flamingo Road near Dog Fancier’s Park. The auctions feature items used or acquired by government agencies ranging from cars and trucks to office equipment and lost and found merchandise.

“The third and final auction of the year is always the biggest,” said David Johnson, manager of the county’s Automotive Division. “Budgets are set for the current fiscal year and any surplus vehicles that are being replaced can be put up for sale. We also expect to see five months’ worth of lost and found items from McCarran, including jewelry, computers, cameras, Kindles and i-Pods.”

Interested participants are urged to preregister as bidders during a three-day preview and preregistration period in advance of the sale. A registration office will be set up on site at the auction lot from Wednesday, Nov. 16, through Friday, Nov. 18, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. During the preview, the public also can see some vehicles and merchandise being offered for sale.
