When Public Works wants to retire old or excess equipment, it turns to Municibid – an online auction company that works a lot like eBay – but it concentrates on selling surplus items from local governments. Recently, the Township put an assortment of goods up for bids, and at its December 15 meeting. Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors learned the results. Some bidders got a real steal. One was able to snag a 5,000 watt Homelite generator for just $82. A 2012 Dodge Charger police special with 65,000 miles was snapped up for $8,000. A 2003 Ford Explorer V6 with a few mechanical issues went for $1,312. A 1987 Massey Ferguson backhoe in fine running condition was gaveled down at $7,117. And two Lawn Boy 6.5 horsepower rotary mowers went for $100 each. You don’t need to be a public employee to participate in the auctions; anyone can register.
