The city of Whitefish will auction off surplus items on Sept. 5 on the eve of the demolition and construction of City Hall.

The sale will be held at 418 E. Second St. starting at 9 a.m. A public viewing will be possible on Sept. 4 from 1-5 p.m. and Sept. 5, from 7:30-9 a.m.

The item’s include a steel reinforced door from 1918; steel jail cells; vintage glass globes; a 1979 Dodge Power Truck with hose nozzles; a 1993 Ford F-350 Ambulance; and 1977 Ford dump truck.

The sale is part of the city’s development of a new City Hall and adjacent buildings. Most items are still attached to the old structures and buyers will be required to remove them.

During construction of the new City Hall in downtown, a temporary site will be used at 1005 Baker Ave., effective Aug. 27. The Planning and Building Department, as well as Parks and Recreation Department, will remain in the Depot Park location.

The half block of City Hall will be fenced off beginning Sept. 8 for the demolition of the building. Baker Avenue and Highway 93 will remain open for traffic during construction. As construction commences, First Street from the alley behind City Hall to Baker Avenue will likely be closed through the spring of 2016.

City leaders say the new site could be completed in 2017.
