BRUNSWICK — Navy trucks, industrial generators and other items that went unclaimed after the closing of Brunswick Naval Air Station are now on the auction block.
Steve Levesque, executive director of civilian agency charged with redevelopment the property, says an auction for the first round consisting of large items ended Wednesday evening. Those included a hydraulic man-lift.
The Sun Journal newspaper says other items including fire trucks, utility trucks, mowing equipment and wheel-mounted transformers will be auctioned later this month. Levesque says smaller items like furniture, filing cabinets, computers will be auctioned later.
The base closed in May 2011. Levesque said the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority kept some airport maintenance and snow removal equipment.
