When was the last time you looked in your garage? It was neat as a pin and every item was something you use all the time, right? Yeah, right.
Just as you accumulate stuff that you no longer need, so too do Kentucky state parks. The Department of Parks is going to lighten its load with one of three regional auctions starting next month. The first auction, covering 11 parks in southern Kentucky, will be held on Friday, Nov. 19, at Lake Cumberland State Resort Park near Jamestown. The sale starts at 9 a.m. CST.
What will be sold off? You name it. Need a floor jack? Got it. Clock radio? Here’s your clock radio. Leaf blower? What am I bid?
It has been more than two years since the department has held an auction, so there are plenty of items no longer needed, notes Rob Minerich, in the administrative services division of the Commerce Cabinet. Lots of furnishings will be put up for sale, such as lamps, desks and chairs. So, too, will quite a bit of lawn maintenance equipment.
The Surplus Property Division in the Finance and Administration Cabinet is handling the auction details.
After the Lake Cumberland auction, others will be conducted early next year at General Butler and Kentucky Dam Village state resort parks, respectively, for the eastern and western regions.
