Mayor Holden announces plan to hold City-Parish Auctions Online

First Auction Includes Cars, Trucks, Heavy Equipment and Computers.


Mayor-President Melvin “Kip” Holden announced today that the City-Parish has contracted with an online government auction site http://www.municibid.com to auction off surplus and police-seized items.

Holden said the use of an on-line auction will provide greater exposure of the surplus items to a broader audience, and ultimately result in greater benefits and cost savings to the City-Parish and taxpayers. The Mayor also said online auctions are widely recognized as a “best practice” approach to inventory management for local governments.

Municibid was chosen because it is designed for local and state government entities. The move will increase non-tax revenue by enabling the City-Parish to more effectively sell surplus items by using municibid’s online government auction platform. Unlike other auction services, municibid does not charge commission on sales.

The first round of auction is scheduled to begin on April 20, 2012 and end on May 4, 2012. Items up for auction include cars, trucks, heavy equipment, lawn equipment and computer equipment. Bidding is open to the public.
