NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The City of New Orleans hopes it can get rid of some abandoned vehicles with an auction on February 16.
The auction, located at Almonaster Auto Pound, 10200 Almonaster Avenue, will begin at 9 a.m. Vehicle preview day and buyer registration is Monday, Feb. 15, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. No one will be admitted after 3:30 p.m. for security reasons.
Since May 2010, the City of New Orleans has held 26 vehicle auctions. Sales have added $1.8 million to the City's General Fund.
As in prior auctions, the buyer will pay a $50 administrative fee which gets the buyer a notarized title at time of payment.
The current auction will have 72 vehicles for sale, all of which have been discarded on neighborhood streets or left unclaimed by residents with excessive parking fines and fees.
