The City of Kennewick is taking property auctions to the net. The City will work with PropertyRoom.com to put its smaller lost, stolen, and forfeited property online.
The web will allow the City to speed up its auction process. Property will no longer will sit on shelves for weeks and months at a time. It will be catologued and skateboards, computers, and bicycles will quickly be put online for residents to buy.
Residents will no longer have to pick up items at police auctions. All items will be handled, inspected, and sent by property room and are guaranteed fraud-free.
The news auctions will gather much needed City revenue and allow the public to claim stolen property.
The City of Kennewick will start its first online auction in two weeks. All online items will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
