Federal officials say two national forests in Michigan are selling vehicles and equipment through an online auction this week.
The city of Detroit is hoping to sell off garbage trucks, buses, other surplus vehicles and machine shop equipment to help pay down its debt.
“Welcome to one of the grandest homes in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in America!”
The latest bid for the Round Island Passage Lighthouse was $20,000, as of Tuesday.
Properties from five Lower Michigan counties, three Northern Michigan and four Upper Michigan counties will be included in the auction.
Those living in the homes can include squatters, renters or former owners who didn’t pay their taxes.
Those bidding may qualify for a $25,000 forgivable loan — money that will be wiped off the books if the owner lives in the home for five years.
“They want the house, but they don’t want to take care of the outside, and they expect everyone else to.”
In an ongoing effort to raise money for Detroit Public Schools, the district continues to auction off items that have been sitting in storage.
An auction of thousands of items from the decrepit Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan is back on.
