Surplus Property The Purchasing Division is responsible for the disposal of surplus personal property pursuant to NC General Statutes. The city’s primary method of disposal is through internet auctions. Items are posted on this site as they become available for auction. You must register with the on line auction company in order to bid. All payments are handled through the on line auction company and the city no longer accepts payments directly. If you have any further questions, please contact the Purchasing Division at firstname.lastname@example.org.
