As the County’s goals remain fixed on efficient spending and increased environmental consciousness, the County vehicle fleet is being trimmed. Vehicles with high fuel consumption are being sold and, if possible, replaced by hybrids or flex fuel option vehicles. The County fleet now has almost 70 hybrid and/or electric vehicles.

The auction begins at midnight Saturday, February 6, and closes at 2 p.m. Saturday, February 13. Details about the auction items are not available or visible on the website until the auction begins. Vehicles and their corresponding service records will be available for inspection Tuesday, February 9, through Thursday, February 11, from noon to 3 p.m. at the County Garage, 6 Peter Behr Dr., San Rafael. All items are sold “as is” and all sales are final; it is the bidder’s responsibility to check the vehicle’s condition prior to purchase.
