In 2018, the county held its first surplus auction in 10 years and brought in more than $28,000. Auction proceeds will go back into the county’s general fund budget.

“By auctioning unused property, we generate revenue for the county and encourage fiscal responsibility,” Chairman Kurt Prenzler said.

The county tries to recycle or re-use equipment and materials no longer needed by its county departments before disposing of them. The county initiated a program 15 years ago to sell vehicles to governmental entities for $1 after taking them out of service due to high mileage or age.
