SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The 4.82-acre parcel proposed for sale is located approximately 2 miles southwest of Marysvale Town and is legally described as:

Salt Lake Meridian

T. 27 S., R. 4 W.,

Sec. 26, lot 4.

The area described contains 4.82 acres in Piute County.

In accordance with 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a)(5), direct sale procedures are appropriate when there is a need to resolve inadvertent unauthorized use or occupancy of the land. The land has been improved and used by the Roth family for residential purposes for many years. Improvements include a residential cabin and associated utilities and access.

The parcel is being offered to Audrey Roth of Piute County, Utah, for no less than the appraised fair market value of $55,000. Ms. Roth will be allowed 30 days from receipt of a written offer to submit either the full payment or at least 20 percent of the appraised value of the parcel and 180 days thereafter to submit the balance. Failure to meet conditions established for this sale will void the direct sale and any monies received will be forfeited.

The October 2008 BLM Richfield Field Office Resource Management Plan identifies this parcel of public land as suitable for disposal through sale, and it has been determined that no significant resource values will be affected by disposal of the parcel. The land is not required for any Federal purpose.

The following rights, reservations, and conditions will be included in the patent that may be issued for the above described parcel of land:

1. A reservation to the United States for a right-of-way for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945).Start Printed Page 6702

A reservation to the United States for the road right-of-way under 44 L.D. 513 (UTU-25688) and all appurtenances thereto, constructed by the United States through, over, or upon the land so patented, and the right of the United States, its agents or employees, to maintain, operate, repair or improve the same so long as needed or used for or by the United States.

4. The patent will include a notice and indemnification statement under the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act. The parcel is subject to the requirements of Section 120(h) (42 U.S.C. Section 9620) holding the United States harmless from any release of hazardous materials that may have occurred as a result of the unauthorized use of the property by other parties. No warranty of any kind, express or implied, is given by the United States as to the title, physical condition or potential uses of the parcel of land proposed for sale.

5. Subject to such rights as Marysvale Town or its successors in interest may have for culinary water system storage tank, pipeline and access road purposes pursuant to right-of-way UTU-83158, including the right to increase the term of the right-of-way to a perpetual term in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15.

On February 10, 2010, the above described land will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including location and entry under the United States mining laws, except the sale provisions of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1713). The BLM is no longer accepting land use applications affecting the identified public land. The effect of segregation will terminate upon: (1) Issuance of a patent; (2) publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation; or (3) on February 10, 2012, unless extended by the BLM State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination date. Audrey Roth will be allowed 30 days from receipt of a written offer to submit either full payment or at least 20 percent of the appraised value of the parcel and within 180 days, thereafter, submit the balance. If the balance of the purchase price is not received within the 180 days, the deposit will be forfeited to the United States and the parcel withdrawn from sale.
