Auction a Success for Township

Everything Gloucester Township put up for auction on Nov. 10 was purchased.

Gloucester Township's auction of surplus property earlier this month was quite a success.

The township brought in $44,000-$45,000 in revenue with the Nov. 10 auction, according to Business Administrator Tom Cardis.

The auction featured retired police vehicles, confiscated cars, landscaping equipment, electronics, bicycles, office supplies and more.

"Everything sold," Cardis said Monday night.

The auction was held at the Department of Public Works compound on Erial Road.

Are there any comments from people who attended the auction?

Hmm, maybe that money can go to defray the tax bills of some of those who owe $100 or less, or better yet, the bogus $40 "cost" associated with the tax sale. $45,000 would cover about a third of the township's costs, based on 3,500 homeowners, sparing some of these distressed people a bit of the hit.

why a tax sale for unpaid sewer bills? it's bad enough that we get billed from CCMUA & GTMUA. Where is all of the money going from the Twp Recycling Program?

So here's the question, if I buy one of the retired police vehicles does it include the cloaking device that allows me to invisibly turn right on red and not show up on camera?
