VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:17 Jul 08, 2010 Jkt 220001 SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to sell four parcels of public land totaling 262.11 acres in Minidoka County, Idaho, to the owners of the surrounding private land for the appraised fair market value of $85,200. The private land surrounding the public land is owned by the Western Mortgage and Realty Company. DATES: Comments regarding the proposed sale must be received by the BLM by August 23, 2010. PO 00000 Frm 00088 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ADDRESSES: Written comments concerning the proposed sale should be sent to Ruth A. Miller, BLM Shoshone Field Manager, 400 West F Street, Shoshone, Idaho 83352. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tara Hagen, Realty Specialist, BLM Shoshone Field Office, 400 West F Street, Shoshone, Idaho 83352 or (208) 732– 7205. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following described public land is being proposed for direct sale to the Western Mortgage and Realty Company in accordance with sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719), at not less than the appraised fair market value: Boise Meridian T. 6 S., R. 24 E., Sec. 30, SW1⁄4SE1⁄4; Sec. 31, lots 1, 4, 5, and 6, and SE1⁄4SE1⁄4. T. 7 S., R. 24 E., Sec. 4, lots 3 and 4. The area described contains 262.11 acres in Minidoka County. The appraised fair market value is $85,200. The public land is identified as suitable for disposal in the 1985 BLM Monument Resource Management Plan (RMP), as amended, and is not needed for any other Federal purposes. The direct sale will allow for the subject parcel to be formally consolidated with adjacent private property, the owner of which currently holds a land use authorization (Cooperative Farm Management Agreement or Land Use Permit) for agricultural purposes. The subject parcels are somewhat isolated and uneconomical to manage due to their location and authorized use for agricultural purposes. Disposal would alleviate the processing and administration of these land use authorizations, as well as generate funding pursuant to the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act (FLTFA) that can be utilized to purchase lands with higher resource values. The public land was identified for disposal in an approved land use plan in effect on July 25, 2000; therefore, proceeds from this sale will be deposited into the Federal Land Disposal Account authorized under section 206 of FLTFA. FLTFA directs the revenues generated from the sale or disposal of public lands identified for disposal in land use plans as of July 25, 2000, to an account that can be used by the BLM, the U.S. Forest Service, the National Park Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to purchase lands located within Federally designated areas or with higher resources from willing sellers.
