Hatfield, PA (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
In an online auction that started on September 3rd and ends on September 25th, Hatfield Township, PA is selling the historic Williams-Kindig House and its surrounding acreage in an effort to garnish additional non-tax revenue. The house was built in 1732 and acquired by the township in 1999 at the urging of a group of residents who wanted to refurbish the house for use as additional meeting and banquet space. Township officials no longer feel the house is serving a fiscally affordable purpose in a time of tight municipal budgets.
Hatfield Township, PA is using online auction site, Municibid.com to sell the items. Municibid was established in 2006 and has grown steadily since, with over 1,000 government agencies nationwide auctioning surplus through the easy-to-use online system. Among the hundreds of governments using Municibid in the greater Philadelphia region are the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office, the City of Philadelphia and Delaware County. Auctions on Municibid result in competitive bidding and great deals on government surplus and forfeited items.
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 for the agency and great deals for bidders.”
