    Colchester Holds Town Wide Tag Sale

    The town of Colchester held a town wide tag sale today they describe as being similar to the television show "Storage Wars."

    Among the items up on the auction block : a 16-passenger van with wheelchair access, a 2003 Ford Crown Victoria and an old fire department truck.

    Those items along with many more were included in the 58 lot silent auction held all day today at the town garage, 300 Old Hartford Road.

    The town manager says that many contractors come out to bid on the snow plows, chainsaws and other equipment that the town is no longer using.

    Items seized after a house foreclosure are also included in the auction.

    The town held similar auctions in the 1990's, which generated money for the town and also helped them unload unwanted items and clear up space in town buildings.
