In an online auction that started on March 14th and ends on March 28th, Shenango Township, PA is selling a 1992 283 Massey Ferguson with 2007 Tiger Boom Mower for additional non-tax revenue. By using an established, but innovative, online government auctions site specifically designed for municipalities, Shenango Township is conducting a 2-week auction of its surplus heavy equipment and machinery. It is looking to garnish thousands of dollars to be put back into its budget.
Shenango Township is using online auction site, Municibid.com to sell the items. Municibid was established in 2006 and has grown steadily since, with over 800 government agencies auctioning surplus through the efficient online system. Shenango Township is auctioning surplus items online because the website has an established nationwide reach growing every day. Auctions on Municibid result in competitive bidding and fair prices for government surplus items.
Shenango Township Roadmaster Joseph Biery Sr. said, “This machine is ready to work. If we hold an onsite auction or sealed bid, our database of potential buyers is limited. By using nationwide government auctions platform Municibid, we can reach so many more individuals and municipalities with a need for this piece of heavy equipment.”
Municibid Founder and 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 audience of competing bidders, leading to better net results.”
