Hennepin County Purchasing and Contract Services periodically conducts auctions of county items that are no longer needed. Currently there is an online auction through the website www.municibids.com scheduled Sept. 27 through Oct. 11.
Items for sale include boats, trucks, trailers, generators and a snowmobile.
“It’s an easy process,” says Senior Contract Services Analyst Jacki Boeke. “Anyone can go to the municibids website and click on ‘surplus stores,’ then the Hennepin County icon.”
To bid on an item, you must first register with municibids.
For further information on all auctions conducted by the county, go to the Hennepin County website or contact Hennepin Purchasing at 612-348-3181.
