NOTICE OF KLICKITAT COUNTY SURPLUS PROPERTY SALE
Public notice is hereby given that the Board of Commissioners of Klickitat County has declared by resolution in a public meeting the following items listed below to be surplus. The Commissioners have requested the Klickitat County Treasurer to dispose of the items. Therefore, there will be a sealed bid auction on May 24, 2010. The surplus property may be viewed at the Klickitat County Fairgrounds, located at 965 Fairgrounds Road, Goldendale, WA, between the hours of 12:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. Thursday, May 20, 2010, 12:00 P.M. to 6:00 p.m. Friday, May 21, 2010, and on Saturday, May 22, 2010 from 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.
The sealed bids may be placed in the drop box located at the Klickitat County Fairgrounds during viewing hours or delivered in person at the Klickitat County Treasurerís Office. Bids can be mailed to the Klickitat County Treasurerís Office at 205 S Columbus MS-CH 22, Goldendale WA 98620. However, the Klickitat County Treasurerís Office must receive the bids by May 24, 2010, by 9:00 A.M. Postmarks on mailed bids will not count for the bidding deadline. Bid forms will be available at the Klickitat County Fairgrounds during the viewing times and also at the Klickitat County Treasurerís Office during regular business hours.
Each bid form may only contain a bid for one item, however the public is allowed to bid on more than one item if they choose to do so. Each acceptable bid must contain: the auction number of the item that the bid is for, the amount of the bid, telephone number or an e-mail address where the bidder can be reached during the day, bidderís mailing address and a signed acknowledgement of the bidderís understanding and acceptance of the terms and conditions of the auction. If the bid form is not completely filled out, or has more than one auction item listed on it, the bid will be rejected.
The Klickitat County Treasurerís Office will begin to open bids in the Treasurerís Office at 10:00 A.M. on May 24, 2010 in the presence of the Klickitat County Prosecuting Attorney, or his representative. At that time, all bids will be opened and the highest and best bidder will be determined. Klickitat County reserves the right to reject all bids. The highest and best bidder will be notified and given one day, 24-hours from time of notification, to present the Klickitat County Treasurer with payment of the bid amount. Cash, check, money order, certified check or electric funds transfer to the Treasurerís bank account are the only acceptable forms of payment for the winning bids. If the winning bidder is unable to make payment of the bid within the 24 hour period, the next highest bidder will be notified. Then the next highest bidder will be given one day, 24 hours from time of notification, to make payment of the bid. This process will continue until a bid is made good or until all bidders have been notified and no bids are left outstanding, or the County determines it necessary to reject all bids.
The winning bidder is required to pay an additional 7.5% sales tax in addition to the bid amount, unless the winning bidder does not live in the State of Washington and is able to provide proof of address in another state. Once the winning bidder has completed the financial transaction with the Klickitat County Treasurerís Office, they will also be responsible to contact the Building and Grounds department to schedule a pick-up time for their auction item(s).
If you have any questions, please contact the Klickitat County Treasurerís office at (509) 773-4664, (509) 493-6090 or (800) 766-5403.
