Furniture previously used by the Forsyth County government will soon be available for the public to purchase.
Rain or shine on Nov. 5, the county will hold a surplus sale for county furniture beginning at 9 a.m. at 843 Canton Highway, which will feature desks, chairs and other items.
According to a news release, the county has more surplus furniture than usual due to recent move-ins to the new courthouse and jail and renovation to the courthouse annex.
“When offices moved into the new courthouse and jail, furniture was standardized in order to be uniform, which left us with some surplus furniture,” Procurement Director Donna Kukarola said in the release. “What surplus furniture other county departments and offices were unable to use is now in storage. As the county government no longer has a need for these items, we will be selling this furniture to the public.
“They will have the opportunity to get items at very reasonable prices, and the county will no longer need to pay to store those items.”
The event will not be an auction, and all sales are final as the item is sold and must be done in cash.
Items need to be moved by 5 p.m., and buyers are responsible for loading equipment, as no county staff will be available for assistance.
The prices of items are: $10 for desks, $2 for chairs, $5 for bookcases, $5 for short file cabinets $10 for tall file cabinets.
Miscellaneous furniture and appliances will be priced on-site.
Those interested in more information should call the county procurement department at (770) 888-8872.
