Surplus sales bring district cash
by Roger S. Lucas
The Grand Coulee Dam School District’s surplus and garage sale has netted some $11,336.24, Superintendent Dennis Carlson told the board Monday night.
Two sales made up the bulk of the money with the disposal of two portable classroom buildings at A.E. Wright Elementary School, and a bus purchased by a Utah sheriff.
The portables, 24 by 36 feet, were purchased by the Colville Indian College at the agency, for $3,600.
The bus, estimated to have a $750 trade-in value, was purchased for $5,400. The sheriff’s office that purchased the bus plan to use it as a command post during rescue operations.
Some surplus items continue to be available for bidding through Public Surplus’ website. A shortened link to Wright’s items is at http://ow.ly/bQEkz.
All items not sold will go with Wright Elementary School’s successful demolition bidder to be selected by the board, July 11.
