Vt. cashes in on surplus auction

Posted: Updated:
BERLIN, Vt. -

The state surplus vehicle auction brought in much more money than expected. Final sales from the event in Berlin last Saturday totaled about $784,000-- nearly $200,000 more than state officials were hoping for.

Buyers came from eight states and the province of Quebec, with Vermonters buying slightly less than half the merchandise. The biggest buyer was a Maine equipment company that paid $127,000 for used dump trucks from the Transportation Agency.
