NEOSHO, Mo. —
A Neosho city surplus property auction is expected to bring out a big crowd today at the city parks department building, 201 Wheeler St.
The sale begins at 9 a.m.
“I know it will draw a huge crowd,” said Wes Franklin, city spokesman. He said the auction list includes something for just about every taste. It includes items placed in surplus from the public works department and the Police Department, including unclaimed evidence.
“It’s basically going to be an all-day event,” Franklin said.
Among the items in the auction are pickup trucks, cars, a dozer, a grader, tractors, computers and computer equipment, pool tables, an iPod, an antique desk and a gum ball machine.
Jim Lievens will serve as auctioneer. He’s with Circle L Auction in Neosho. Lievens said he has been fielding many phone calls about the auction.
“We’re getting quite a few calls,” he said. “I just took a call from Harrisonville. That guy was interested in the dozer.”
He said other calls have come from Monett and Springfield.
He said other items likely to be popular among buyers are the mowers and the bicycles.
“We have a heck of a lot of bicycles,” he said.
Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted as payment. Identification is required to register as a bidder.
