Lake County Commissioners have decided to hold a public auction to dispose of the county’s surplus property. During their meeting this week, commissioners approved another listing of surplus property from county departments and discussed how to dispose of it. Commissioners debated either accepting sealed bids for the items or holding a public auction. Commissioner Adam Leighton said he’s in favor of an auction.
The commission voted to move forward with planning a public auction to sell the surplus property. The auction is currently scheduled for June 15th with a start time to be determined. Commissioners are hiring Chuck Sutton Auctioneer Company to organize and conduct the auction.
