ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Old road maintenance and storm drainage equipment could generate hundreds of thousands of dollars for Dougherty County.

Commissioners gave staff approval to sell four pieces of Public Works equipment on www.govdeals.com , an e-bay like site for surplus government equipment.

The county recently purchased new storm drainage equipment.

Leaders say selling old equipment helps reduce replacement costs.

"So we can either turn it into the dealer we bought the new one from, and get a guaranteed buy-back amount, trade-in amount, or we can go out to the market and see if we can get more money," said Michael McCoy, Asst. County Administrator.

The equipment was listed online this afternoon. Leaders don't know how much money they'll get from the sales but say some used road maintenance equipment can fetch up to $150,000.

All the money will go to the county's general fund.
