The Government Surplus Auction Lot is located at 4320 Stephanie Street off East Flamingo Road near Dog Fancier’s Park. Due to COVID-19 concerns, no more than 50 people will be allowed onsite during the preview period, and all visitors coming onto the grounds must wear face coverings.

“We normally hold three government surplus auctions a year which draw large crowds, which we cannot accommodate due to the pandemic,” said David Johnson, director of the county’s automotive services division, which oversees the sales.

Auctions feature items used or acquired by area police departments, local cities, the State of Nevada and other government agencies. In addition to vehicles, other popular items that are sold include furniture, computers, bicycles, and electronics.

“We had to cancel our spring auction, but we believe we can adapt the sale to allow for a preview period and no live auction on site. We will see how the sale goes this summer to determine if we will try to organize an auction this fall in a similar format,” Johnson added.

Approximately 300 vehicles, 300 miscellaneous lots and 150 unclaimed airport property lots will be sold at the auction.
