Residents can bid on city vehicles, trailers, computers and office furniture among other items during Killeen’s surplus auction this weekend.
Construction materials and scrap metal also will be sold during the auction, which is open to the public. Residents can view items from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday at the Special Events Center on W.S. Young Drive. Bidding will be accepted in-person and online starting at 10 a.m. The auction ends when all items are sold.
“The auction is a way for the city to release city equipment and material that is no longer needed for city operations but may be useful to others,” said Hilary Shine, city spokeswoman.
Residents can preview some of the items, including a Ford 3000 tractor, a Ford Explorer, Chevy and Dodge pickups and a Ford Taurus, at www.langeauction.com.
Shine said the last city surplus auction in June 2011 brought in about $50,000.
“We anticipate a similar result at this year’s auction,” she said. “Proceeds from the auction are returned to the city’s revenue funds to be used for the provision of city services.”
