Legal notice of intent to sell personal property via internet auction

The Board of Trustees of Jefferson Township, Franklin County, Ohio (“Board”) routinely has personal property, including motor vehicles, road machinery, equipment, tools, or supplies that is not needed for public use, is obsolete, or is unfit for the use for which it was acquired. It is the intent of the Board to sell such property by Internet auction. GovDeals, Inc. (“GovDeals”), a Delaware corporation, having its principal place of business at 5907 Carmichael Place, Montgomery, AL 36117, shall conduct the Internet auctions on behalf of the Board. The Internet address of the website where such Internet actions will be conducted is www.govdeals.com. The terms and conditions of sale will be displayed at the top of each page of each asset listed by the Board to be sold on GovDeals Internet auction website. Personal property sold via Internet auction shall be offered for a minimum of ten (10) days including Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. A minimum price, and other terms and conditions of sale, may be established by the Board or its agent. For any items that are sold, GovDeals will charge the winning bidder, in addition to the sales price, a fee equal to twelve and one-half percent (12.5%) of the sales price. There is a minimum fee of Five Dollars ($5.00). Sale proceeds will be collected by GovDeals and remitted to the Board, less applicable fees. Buyers may be subject to state and/or local sales and/or use taxes. All items are sold “As Is, Where Is” and there is no warranty of any kind as to merchantability or fitness for use. Buyers will not be entitled to any payment for loss of profit or any other monetary damages - special, direct, indirect or consequential. The Board reserves the right to reject any and all bids and to withdraw from sale any item listed. All items must be removed within 10 business days of issuance of the Buyer’s Certificate and a daily storage fee of $10.00 may be charged for items not removed within that time.
