City to auction bikes, tools

More than 50 items up for bidding Saturday.

More than 50 items will be up for bidding at the annual Logansport city auction Saturday.

Up for sale will be items various city departments no longer need or ones that have been collected by the Logansport Police Department, Logansport Clerk-Treasurer Carol Sue Hayworth said.

“Items that are going into the sale are any property that we have that’s eligible for disposal,” Hayworth said, adding that items contributed by the police department have been unclaimed for more than a year.

A chainsaw sharpener, shelves, keyboards, a space heater, a 1975 Chevrolet dump truck, video security equipment, paintball guns, printers and a slew of bicycles are just some of the items attendees will have the opportunity to bid on.

Hayworth said the auction has had good turnouts in previous years.

“A lot of people come to buy those bicycles,” she said.

Logansport Police Chief Mike Clark said the amount of bikes that will be available is comparable to auctions in the past.

“When we have bikes that are stolen, we urge people to come down and check from time to time to see if they’ve been recovered,” Clark said. “Then we release them back to the owners, but these are remainders that are unclaimed that we’ve had for a period of time so we get them declared as surplus property and have them sold at public auction.”

Hayworth said the money raised for each item sold in the auction will go toward the department it came from.

The auction will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday behind the Logansport City Building, 601 E. Broadway.
