Starting at 8:00 a.m. on May 29, 2023, the City will have a variety of surplus vehicles and equipment available for auction on, a site that allows government agencies to sell surplus items to the public. Item prices range from big ticket like an SUV and a tractor to next-to-nothing.

All City of Sanford auctions will end at 8:00 p.m. on June 8, 2023. Sanford City Council reserves the right to reject any or all bids.
