  • The city of Hannibal took in $28,739 during its auction of surplus property Saturday.
    “This was a fairly decent amount when you consider how much major equipment we had in it,” said Phyllis Nelson, city collector. “Some years (the amount) would have been a lot less than that because of that fact.”
    Some of the bigger items sold Saturday included some trucks, but the high ticket item was a Bobcat that brought approximately $8,400.
    According to Nelson, city departments with their own funding source such as the Parks Department, Library and Convention & Visitors Bureau get to keep the revenue from items they contributed. Everything else goes into the General Fund.
    The auction attracted approximately 135 people.
    “I think we had a really good turnout considering how cool it was down there,” said Nelson.
