SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The following described public land in Custer County, Idaho has been determined to be suitable for sale at not less than fair market value under sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended (90 Stat. 2750, 43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719). It has been determined that this land is difficult to economically manage as part of the public lands. It has been determined that resource values will not be affected by the disposal of these two parcels of public land. Both parcels are identified for disposal in the Challis Resource Management Plan (1999). In accordance with 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a)(5), these two parcels are being offered by direct (non-competitive) sale to Wayne and Melodie Baker of Clayton, Idaho, based on the need to resolve inadvertent unauthorized historic use and occupancy and the value of added improvements. One of the parcels of public land has been fenced in with the private land for many years and used for livestock grazing and hay production. The second parcel of public land has been used for many years as a homesite for hired help, storage area for equipment, and contains a root cellar and storage shed. Failure or refusal by Wayne and Melodie Baker to submit the required fair market appraisal amount within 180 days of the sale of the land will constitute a waiver of this preference consideration and this land may be offered for sale on a competitive or modified competitive basis.

The parcels are described as follows:
