Website to auction surplus goods

October 9, 2006

Albany - E-bay is a popular website for the public to use to buy and sell goods. Now, the government has a similar website to get rid of unwanted items.  

Dougherty County commissioners are considering using a government auction website, govdeals.com, to sell surplus or confiscated items via the internet. Assistant County administrator Thomas Thomas says the website will help the county get rid of old equipment sooner. He says, "We put them out for bid up to 30 days, as opposed to having a one day auction on a Saturday, gives us a larger source of customers, gives us the opportunity not to have those items laying around and depreciating, so I think it's a win-win for the county."

The online auction site also exposes more potential buyers to the surplus equipment. Govdeals.com has approximately 80,000 registered users.
