“By continuing to offer the spring and fall surplus auctions online, the County is able to serve more participants and receive bids from other states, which can generate more revenue for the County,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Department of Public Works and Engineering. “Surplus items such as vehicles, equipment and other items will be available for bidding.”

Items for sale may be inspected between the hours of 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, March 27 and Tuesday, March 28 by appointment only. To schedule an appointment at the Monmouth County Public Works & Engineering Complex at 250 Center Street, Freehold, contact Mark Pajor at 732-431-7290 ext. 7299.

“The County began the online auctions in 2008, which to date, has generated more than $2 million for the County which is a direct saving for taxpayers,” said Commissioner Deputy Director Nick DiRocco, liaison to the Department of Finance. “The auction allows the County to sell vehicles and equipment it no longer needs which makes it a positive program for both the County and the taxpayers.”
