For Graham, it’s a busy time of year.
“It’s a lot of work,” he said. “I’ll start taking pictures for it next week, and we’ll have somebody in Elk City until the end of March. In fact, we’ll have several people out there.”
Sullivan said the exposure the Elk City sale gets allows commissioners to get the maximum for the equipment.
While the Elk City Auction in March is the biggest, there are other equipment auctions each year. “We have one in McAlester also every year, but this one’s usually quite a bit larger than it,” Graham said.
This year’s Elk City Auction will start at 9 a.m. March 8 and 9.
Cleveland County Commissioners approved the following equipment surplus to be sold at the Elk City Auction:
· From District 1 — 20-foot Wellscargo gooseneck trailer, 1998 Dodge pickup, Freightliner Dump Truck, 1988 Freightliner, Sharp Digital Copier System, John Deere Tractor, Case Farm Tractor, Tiger Tractor and Accessories, MC5 Rotary Air Compressor, 1996 Rosco Chipper, Generator 3 axle trailer, 15-foot Dumpbed, Sidemount Tiger Rotary Mower
· From District 3 — two 2007 Chevrolet pickups, Chevrolet pickup, 1991 Ford Truck Tractor, Link Belt Crane, Backhoe, Lufkin Dump Rock Trailer
County commissioners also accepted the retirement letter of Emergency Management Director Dan Cary.
