Public Auction this Friday

1/26/2009:

Considering many Hoboken residents are feeling the crunch of the economic woes the country’s been facing – you might be interested in this week’s Public Auction, taking place on Friday, January 30th at 11am (in the court room / city council chambers of City Hall).

Bikes, cars, even a fire truck!

In addition to abandoned and unclaimed bicycles and cars – the city is also auctioning off “surplus equipment,” including some classic cop-style cars (“crown vics”), trucks and fire department vehicles. They have a 1987 Mack Fire Truck (bidding starts at $1000 for that one!) Imagine trying to park that sucker?

A total of 40 bikes, 15 city vehicles and 3 cars are available.

To read the official announcement, and where you can view the properties prior to bidding:

[quote comment=”130995″]A lot of screwball volunteer firemen buy fire trucks to restore and play with. And then there are groups that buy them to restore.And then there is a third group and they are rural fire depts that restore and use them.[/quote]

And then there’s Hoboken who would lease it from whoever they sold it to, but at a higher rate than what they sold it for.

I might be the only bidder for all of Hoboken. If my $1 top bid wins, I’m changing the name of the town to SexInTheCityRejects.
