Community members are invited to bring cash and a shovel for an opportunity to pick up a piece of local history during the City’s July 18 “Community Cash and Carry” day at the soon-to-be-demolished Citrus Heights city hall.

Items up for grabs will include roses, shrubs, trees, and potted plants; as well as statues, fountains, planters and benches — all of which range in price from $5 for a rose bush, to $30 for fountains over four feet in height, according to the City’s website.

The City says the day was scheduled in an effort to preserve plants, pottery, and other items within the community — many of which trace back to the days when the current city hall campus was originally operated as a plant nursery, prior to the City’s incorporation in 1997.

The cash-only event will take place on Saturday, July 18, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the current city hall campus at 7115 Greenback Ln., with buyers responsible for “unearthing” and moving all items.

According to an event flier, all participants “will be required to sign a release of liability waiver prior to admission,” and those under 18 will be required to have a parent or guardian present.
