City of Cohoes to Sell Old Street Signs in Online Auction

Over 700+ decommissioned City of Cohoes street signs that have been replaced over the last two years throughout the Spindle City will be made available through auction beginning in July. Each sign will be posted for 7 days and are only available through the auction process (cannot be pre-purchased).   

The minimum opening bid is $10, with bidding continuing in increments of $2. Street signs will be auctioned off online through GovDeals. You must pre-register through GovDeals @ in order to place a bid.  Interested buyers will have one week to bid and purchase their desired street signs. The first auction group will start at 9 a.m. on July 2nd with additional signs added each week thereafter.  

Mayor Morse states, “Auctioning off the former street signs is a creative way to raise funds to support the long awaited Spindle City Dog Park and youth recreation programs.”
