On-line Surplus Auction Underway Now
In the market for a used vehicle or boat? Check out the City's Surplus On-line Auction underway, now through Tuesday, June 15th, 2021. Cars, trucks, vans, emergency vehicles, boats and more - right now, there are 49 surplus vehicles on the auction block. The auction ends on Tuesday, June 15th, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. Anyone interested, can visit the auction site and submit a bid at: https://bidera.hibid.com/auctions/index/

The City contracts with a company called "Bidera" to handle public auctions of surplus items. As part of their contract, they inspect each item, write up a description, take detailed photographs and then host the auction. Hollywood is just one of many local municipalities to use the Bidera on-line auction site, to sell surplus items with the goal of realizing the best possible price to the benefit of taxpayers.
