Williamsport, PA (PRWEB) October 11, 2013
In a series of online auctions that started at the end of September and end on October 24th, The Williamsport Area School District in Lycoming County, PA is selling industrial-sized appliances, tables, and equipment from its school kitchens and cafeterias, as well as gymnasium fixtures, classroom tables, chairs, desks, and shelves, and a Kohler and Campbell upright piano for additional non-tax revenue. Items for auction Vulcan refrigerators, ovens, and stoves, Hussman glass-top ice cream freezers, a Hobart commercial potato peeler, and a Wells electric warming unit, among other unique surplus items such as a potter’s wheel and theater lights. By using an established, but innovative, online government auctions site specifically designed for municipalities and government agencies, the WASD is selling its surplus items online as a way to garnish thousands of dollars to be put back into its budget.
The Williamsport Area School District 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 auctioning surplus through the efficient online system. Among the hundreds of governments using Municibid on the East Coast are the Cities of Boston and Philadelphia, and dozens of townships, counties, school districts, and other official agencies throughout Pennsylvania. Auctions on Municibid result in competitive bidding and great deals on government surplus and forfeited items. The WASD is auctioning its surplus items online because the Municibid website has an established nationwide reach growing every day.
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.”
The The Williamsport Area School District’s online auction of their government surplus items ends on October 24th. Included in the auction is an antique Kohler and Campbell upright piano formerly used by the Music Department and a Basketball Rebounder formerly used by the Physical Education Department. Some auction items currently listed on Municibid by WASD end as early as October 11th at 5:00 PM.
