City releases list of merchandise, vehicles to be auctioned

Those interested in reviewing the list of items being auctioned by the city this weekend can see an online list now and inspect the items in person on Friday.

The 14-page inventory includes about 50 automobiles — including forfeited luxury vehicles, and surplus pickup trucks, former patrol cruisers and SUVs — as well as office equipment, electronics, jewelry, tools, boats and even a mobile home.

“The city’s goal is turn these surplus items into cash,” said auctioneer Nick Clark, “and for those attending the auction, it’s a chance to get some great deals, because everything must go, regardless of how low the winning bid is.”

The city will be auctioning the property on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. at the city impound yard at 1656 Popp’s Ferry Road.

Those interested can preview items on Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the impound yard, which is on city property just east of the Cedar Lake Road. The auction itself has a $10 admission fee. A concession stand will offer food and soft drinks.

The items will be sold “as is, where is,” with no guarantees or warranties, Clark said. All purchased items must be removed no later than Wednesday, April 18 at 4 p.m. The auction will accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard or Discover cards. City of Biloxi employees are prohibited from bidding on items.
