City of Cottage Grove to sell surplus property on eBay
Cottage Grove Minnesota 7584 80th Street South 55016

The Cottage Grove Public Works Department has a few too many single axle dump trucks, four-wheel drive pick-ups, and various other heavy duty equipment items in its garage and instead of trading them in, the department decided to put the items up for sale on eBay.

The department has a surplus of several vehicles, lawn equipment, even a small garbage truck that will soon be up for auction on the Internet.

The city's fire department is also auctioning off three thermal imaging cameras. A grant was awarded to the department in 2010 for an upgrade to the department's four cameras, thus creating an unneeded surplus.

Currently, the Cottage Grove Police Department is using one thermal imaging camera and the fire department is putting the three remaining cameras up for auction.
