Vermont to hold 'tag sale' of surplus office equipment at Waterbury office complex
Michael Obuchowski, Commissioner of Buildings and General Services has announced he would be authorizing the transfer of surplus office furnishings at the Waterbury Office Complex to interested Vermont cities, towns, schools, and non-profit agencies at no cost. Tropical Storm Irene forced the State to abandon the State Office Complex in Waterbury last year. Before it can begin demolition and construction of the new State Office Complex, the State must first dispose of a variety of office equipment and furnishings no longer in use by State agencies and departments.
Desks, chairs, tables, bookcases, lamps, file cabinets, office fans, air conditioners, office supplies, desk organizers, blackboards, whiteboards, and miscellaneous supplies will be made available free of charge to cities, towns and schools.
Downsizing opportunities and plans that envision the State needing less space for its workforce in the future make it possible for these furnishings to be provided to Vermont communities, schools, non-profit agencies.
“We are hoping all Vermont communities needing office equipment, furniture, and supplies will take advantage of this unique opportunity” said Commissioner Obuchowski.
Once local governments, schools and non-profits have had the opportunity to access the surplus inventory, any remaining items will be made available to the general public at surplus property prices.
