Mishawaka auction attracts hundreds

From boats to mowers and even a fire truck - hundreds of people showed up for the first public auction in Mishawaka in 15 years.

The public auction
included tons of equipment that had been accumulated over the years from several city departments.

"We were a little bit overwhelmed in the beginning, we had a big rush of people to register," says Wayne Ryan, an auctioneer.

Lloyd Lampert is a farmer who drove all the way from Cassopolis. He says at an auction like this he could save over $30,000 on a tractor.

"This is what small business owners will come after because with a minimum amount of money you put into this equipment they can keep their business going for a long time," says Lampert.
