Finance -- It's "Sold to the highest bidder!" in the City of Toronto
Public Auction on Saturday, May 26 at the Queen Elizabeth Building, Exhibition
Place.

Bidding starts at 9:30 a.m., but interested buyers can have a sneak preview of
the articles up-for-grabs beginning at 8 a.m. Vehicles will go on sale at 10:30
a.m.

Big-ticket items and motorized equipment can be held with a deposit of $200
payable by cash or certified cheque, with the balance payable by cash or
certified cheque prior to pick-up. Other items require a 25 per cent deposit
(minimum $5). Visa, Mastercard (two per cent premium) cash or certified cheque
will be accepted as payment for all other auction items.

This giant, semi-annual auction offers the public a great opportunity to pick
up some real bargains. Items to go on the block include office equipment, cars,
trucks and lawn and garden equipment.

Organized by the City of Toronto's Finance Department, Purchasing and Materials
Management Division, the auction earns money for the municipal government and
finds new homes for hundreds of goods no longer needed by the City of Toronto.
