Iowa DOT selling off items as garages close

CORNING (KWWL) -

The Iowa Department of Transportation is in the process of shutting down some of its facilities. Its maintenance garage near Corning -- one of several garages closing around the state.

As they prepare to move out, the DOT is selling off some of their stuff.

"I got a nice shelf, a real heavy-duty shelf," said Dawn Emery, who lives in Ames. "I have a couple of friends who work for the DOT and they told me about it."

The DOT says it's closing the garages because it's receiving less money from the legislature than requested.
