Just search your local auction house or call your local utilities to see who they use to auction off their stuff. There are usually one or two big place that handles most of the local government stuff.
I've purchased several vehicles through government auctions, both surplus municipal fleet vehicles and impounded vehicles, through both live auctions and online. You don't need to pay a fee for listings through an outfit like you've identified. The data they're selling is free if you just search on your own. It is pretty easy to figure out who your local municipalities are using - some use eBay, some use govdeals.com or publicsurplus.com, and I'm sure there are others. They work directly with the municipalities to list their property. What other questions do you have?
