Lot 28 is proposed for sale to Charles Henrickson and Lynn Hendrickson, of Austin, Nevada for the Fair Market Value (FMV) of $7,000.

The proceeds from the sale of the land will be deposited into the Federal Land Disposal Account for Nevada pursuant to FLTFA.

The residences of the two parties and some outlying structures have inadvertently been constructed on public land. The direct sale would not change the status quo in that no other land uses are expected for these lands. The BLM prepared an environmental assessment (EA) and provided a 30-day public comment period. No comments were received and a finding of no significant impacts (FONSI) was signed on July 9, 2008.

Payment must be submitted in the form of a certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable in U.S. dollars to the ‘‘Department of the Interior—Bureau of Land Management.’’ The following numbered terms and conditions will appear in the conveyance document for this parcel: 1.
