WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The West Lafayette Board of Public Works and Safety approved declaring a 2000 Case 621 CXT Payloader as surplus at Tuesday morning’s meeting.
In addition to the payloader — an equipment machine used in construction to move or load materials such as soil and debris — other items, multiple miscellaneous storage containers, were also declared surplus. While the containers are not worth anything, according to Street Commissioner Ben Anderson, the payloader will be place up for sale.
“We’re going to list the case loader on GovDeals , ” Anderson said, “to try in order to sell it. ”
GovDeals is a “liquidity services marketplace, ” for governmental and educational agencies to sell excess items.
