Local Governments Can Take Advantage of State Fleet Auction Before General Public
Pre-sale runs from April 2 to April 13

FRANKFORT, Ky. (April 2, 2018) - Beginning today through April 13, local city and county governments have the opportunity to view and purchase surplus vehicles from the Kentucky Division of Surplus Property prior to the general public auction on April 24.

Local governments can save a significant amount of money on the available vehicles. Makes and models vary and include trucks, vans, sedans, 4x4s and more.

“We are glad to offer these vehicles to local governments,” said Dewey Blevins, director of the Division of Surplus Property. “The state rotates vehicles out of its inventory at regular intervals. Many of these vehicles can be useful for local governments.”

All vehicles are located at the Division of Fleet Management’s maintenance garage lot located at 513 Barrett Avenue, Frankfort.

Local government entities will need to adhere to the following guidelines:

• The local government entity will need to pay for the item before it can removed from the Fleet facility.
• Vehicles must be paid for and removed by 4:30 p.m. on April 13, 2018.
• All checks must be made payable to Kentucky State Treasurer.

For more information or to make arrangements to view vehicles, please contact Johnathan White at 502-782-0097 or Trudi Johnson at 502-782-0096.


The Division of Surplus Property is part of the Finance and Administration Cabinet. The agency disposes of excess federal and state surplus property in the most cost efficient manner and in the best interest of the Commonwealth of Kentucky and its citizens. The division promotes and facilitates sustainable reuse of personal surplus property to state, local governments and qualifying non-profit entities.
