Taxpayer demand and tightened budgets require government agencies to look for new ways of increasing non-tax revenue, municibid is an easy way to achieve this and at no cost to the agency.
Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
After three previously successful auctions, the City of Baton Rouge is once again holding an online auction through the government auctions site, municibid.com.
The 114 surplus items are open to public for bidding, bidding ends on August 24th. Auction items can be found in the Baton Rouge Surplus Store on municibid.com. Items for auction include cars, trucks, heavy equipment, tools, kitchen equipment, medical equipment, computers and more.
municibid Founder & CEO, Greg Berry said, “Taxpayer demand and tightened budgets require government agencies to look for new ways of increasing non-tax revenue, municibid is an easy way to achieve this and at no cost to the agency.” Berry added “auction items will reach a much broader, national and global audience of competing bidders, leading to better net results, while also providing great deals for buyers.”
In a recent example, the Town of Mansfield, MA recently sold 70 items, expecting to earn around $75,000, instead, using municibid, sales totalled $167,000.
