Eagle River Water & Sanitation auctioning off 11 vehicles

December 8, 2022, 7:33 am

Eagle River Water & Sanitation District this week announced it’s auctioning 11 vehicles through Dec. 15:

The Eagle River Water & Sanitation District is selling seven utility and pickup trucks, plus four passenger vehicles using the Public Surplus online auction service. Bidding opens at 8 a.m. Dec. 5 and closes at 3 p.m. Dec. 15.

“As a local government, we want to provide water and wastewater services at a reasonable cost to our taxpayers and ratepayers,” says utility services manager Shane Swartwout. “Using Public Surplus reduces district costs associated with selling used assets and it also broadens the buyer pool, which helps ensure the best value out of vehicles that were used to provide our community with these essential services.”

Vehicles up for auction were used in daily operations and were regularly maintained. Most district vehicles are replaced around about 110,000 miles.

Interested parties should sign up as a registered buyer on the Public Surplus website, where they can also view the district pageshowing current auction vehicles with pictures and information.

The Utility Services department manages the auction; questions will be answered through the Public Surplus website. Bidders may arrange to inspect auction items between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, by contacting facilities and fleet services technician Mike Cushman at 970-477-7933. Test drives are not allowed for insurance reasons.

    Hope you look to replace these vehicles with electric cars and trucks. Their cost over a 100,000 miles is much less. Fuel and maintenance a quarter or 1/5 as much. And the EVs will go another 100,000 miles or more. Look at total cost of ownership rather than initial purchase price.
    This doesn’t even include the benefit to the environment.
