Surplus Property

Government Surplus Auctions

Beginning in February 2008, Cherokee County began selling surplus property via the Internet. The property is auctioned through GovDeals Auction Service. This service offers the citizens of Cherokee County an opportunity to purchase surplus items year round as opposed to an annual County auction.
