An old police car has brought in $5,000 for the City of Knox. Mayor Dennis Estok says the 2014 Dodge Avenger had previously been declared surplus. “We advertised it for sale and took sealed bids on that,” he explains. “The minimum we set was $4,900. We did get one bid for $5,000.”
Estok says the board of works agreed Wednesday to release the car to the highest bidder.
