Surplus property

The county sells surplus property (e.g., land and buildings) that's available for public purchase, by sealed bids and requests for proposals. Other surplus property (e.g., furniture, equipment, and vehicles) is sold via online and live auctions. The county sells items "as is" and all sales are final.

Questions about land or building sales should go to the contact in the sealed bid or request for proposal.  Questions about auctions or a listing in a specific auction should go to the auction contractor.
