Old equipment brings new money to Lee County

February 14, 2007

Lee County--  The Lee County Public Works department came up with another plan to help ease the financial burden in the county.

Public Works Director William Clark told commissioners the department could put some old equipment up for sale on government website, Govdeals.com. Equipment including tractors and front-end loaders were placed on the site at the beginning of February. 

The proceeds will go into the county's general fund and the plan has already been successful.

"From what we're seeing right now, it's doing real good. We hope it does better. Public Works takes good care of the equipment. Even though it's old we take good care of it and the people that bid on it and came out here see that it's taken care as best as it could," said Assistant Public Works Director Mike Sistrunk.

The department originally predicted the plan would raise about $120,000. Sistrunk says they've already made more than that so far this month.
