[SEPT. 18, 2004]  SPRINGFIELD -- Have you always wanted a Miller concrete saw, Ryan turf aerator, Kees 48-inch front-mount mower with a Honda engine or a Johnson outboard motor?

The Illinois Department of Central Management Services announced that these and other items, including computer equipment and furniture, will be auctioned at its state surplus property sale at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 22, at the Illinois State Surplus Warehouse, 1924 S. 10 St.

The merchandise will be available for inspection from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 20-21 and beginning at 7 a.m. the day of the auction. Registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. There are no warranties or guarantees implied or expressed, and all sales are final.

Bidders may pay for purchases with cash, MasterCard, Visa, cashier's checks, money orders or traveler's checks in increments of $100 or less. Business or personal checks are also accepted, but they must be supported by a letter of credit from a financial institution. The letters of credit must include the maximum amount of credit approved through a specific date and should also state that they cover the purchase price of state of Illinois property only. All letters of credit must be approved prior to the sale. Two types of identification must also be provided, including one with a photograph.

The state reserves the right to reject any payment or identification of a bidder if it appears it may not be in the best interest of the state of Illinois.

All buyers must take possession of property purchased immediately upon conclusion of the auction. The state of Illinois is not responsible for accidents or loss.
