The Missouri Department of Conservation will hold a public auction of various used vehicles and equipment on Saturday, as planned.
Conservation department officials report receiving several inquiries about whether the auction would be affected by the continuing shutdown of federal government operations. Since the conservation department is a state agency, its activities are unaffected by the federal shutdown.
The sale is at 10 a.m. at the conservation department’s maintenance center at 1715 Highway 32 West, Salem. Doors open at 7:30 a.m. The auction will include dozens of vehicles, along with ATVs, trailers, boats, outboard motors, mowers, generators, blowers, pumps and other equipment.
Pre-registration the day before the auction is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Registration the day of the sale begins at 7:30 a.m. Those interested can also view auction items from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at the Salem Maintenance Center.
