Freeholder Director Daniel Beyel announced that Cape May County has received over $100,000 from the sale of items confiscated from one of the largest stolen property schemes in Cape May County’s history. The County conducted seven on-line auctions from June through December of 2010 and netted $100,131. More than 1,500 items were sold including computers, vacuum cleaners, tools, video games, kitchen items, miscellaneous household items, cameras, camping supplies and more.
The items were sold on GovDeals which is accessible through the county’s website capemaycountygov.net. Freeholder Director Daniel Beyel said, “We are very pleased with the amount of revenue that was generated for county taxpayers through these on-line auctions. The County decided with this significant number of items to be sold over several weeks that an online auction would bring the most revenue back to the county. We had used GovDeals in the past to sell a wide variety of items and we felt they would be a good venue to help us capture as much revenue from these items as possible. We are pleased with the results.”
