Allen County to Conduct Surplus Property Auction
Sale to be held Sept. 26 at County Institutional Power Plant
Allen County government is making plans to auction off surplus equipmentÂ and other property on Saturday, September 26, beginning at 9 a.m.Â The auction will be held at Allen County’s Institutional Power Plant at 2116 Carroll Road.

“In previous years, the County auction has occurred in the spring,” said Robert Bolenbaugh,Â County Purchasing Director. “But this year, we decided to wait until autumn so that we wouldÂ have enough items to make the auction worth our while.”

Among the itemsÂ will be desks, chairs, file cabinets, personal computers, cameras, shop machinery, power tools,Â hand tools, bicycles, mopeds, miscellaneous jewelry and other items. All sales are strictly cashÂ at the time of the sale and all merchandise must be removed by the end of the sale day.Â Funds derived from the sale will be returned to government coffers through the County’s Sale ofÂ County-Owned Property Fund. The auction is being conducted by Harvey Auctioneers.
