ARDEN HILLS, Minn. (AP) — Talk about your atypical garage sale.
Minnesota government is getting ready to part with some well-used equipment, cars and other supplies it no longer needs. The latest surplus goods auction is set for Saturday in Arden Hills.
There are old squad cars, sport-utility vehicles and even a dump truck on the auction block. Most have many miles on them. There are smaller finds, too — from file cabinets to snow blowers to lawn mowers.
The Department of Administration conducts about 12 of these auctions each year to cull its fleets and equipment stocks.
