There were nine different bidders but only four pieces of equipment were sold. Bids for the remaining pieces were too low and the commissioners elected not to award a bid for them. Instead, they will seek another alternative way to sell the equipment. The equipment that did not sell included a John Deere 6405 mower with side mount mower, a TS 100 New Holland tractor with side mount mower, an Econoline tandem trailer 12-ton backhoe pro, a 1995 Chevy 1500 pickup and three Dodge Dakota’s from 2002 to 2005.
After opening the bids, Highway Superintendent Jason Peters reviewed the bids and before the close of the commissioners meeting presented the results.
Bidders who were awarded during the commissioners meeting will be notified by the County Highway Department. They will then have 24 hours to pay for their equipment and remove it from the Highway garage on King Road.
