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 online auction site to sell surplus items with the goal of realizing the best possible price to the benefit of taxpayers.
Cars, trucks, vans, box trucks and more - right now there are 45 vehicles on the auction block. The auction closes September 17th at 7:00 p.m. Anyone interested can visit the auction site and submit a bid here: https://bidera.hibid.com/catalog/181610/city-of-hollywood-surplus-auction-9-17-2019/
We know the lifeguard towers received a lot of press recently, but they are not a part of this auction lot. Stay tuned for when they go up for sale this fall.
