days prior to the sale date.

    Sealed bids must be for not less than the appraised fair market 

value. Each sealed bid must include a certified check, money order, 

bank draft, or cashier's check made payable in U.S. currency to 

``Department of the Interior--Bureau of Land Management'' for not less 

than 10 percent of the amount of the bid and must be enclosed in a 

sealed envelope with the name of the sale parcel (either ``Sale 1--

South Edmonds Parcel'' or ``Sale 2--Parcel 1A'') written on the lower 

front left-hand corner of the envelope.

    The highest qualifying bidder for each sale parcel will be declared 

the high bidder and will receive written notice. Bidders submitting 

matching high bid amounts will be provided an opportunity to submit 

supplemental bids. The BLM Sierra Front Field Office Manager will 

determine the method of supplemental bidding, which may be by oral 

auction or additional sealed bids. The high bidder must submit the 

remainder of the full bid price in the form of a certified check, money 

order, bank draft, or cashier's check made payable in U.S. currency to 

the ``Department of the Interior--Bureau of Land Management'' prior to 

expiration of 180 days from the day of sale. Personal checks will not 

be accepted. No contractual or other rights against the United States 

may accrue until the BLM officially accepts the offer to purchase and 

the full bid price is paid. Failure to pay the full price prior to the 

expiration of the 180th day following the day of sale will cause the 

entire 10 percent bid deposit to be forfeited to the BLM. In accordance 

with 43 CFR 2711.3-1(f), the BLM may accept or

reject any or all offers to purchase, or withdraw any parcel of land or 

interest therein from sale, if, in the opinion of a BLM authorized 

officer, consummation of the sale would be inconsistent with any law, 

or for other reasons. If not sold, the lands described in this notice 

may be identified for sale at a later date without further legal 

notice.

    Federal law requires that bidders must be (1) United States 

citizens 18 years of age or older; (2) a corporation subject to the 

laws of any State or of the United States; (3) an entity including, but 

not limited to associations or partnerships capable of acquiring and 

owning real property, or interests therein, under the laws of the State 

of Nevada; or (4) a State, State instrumentality, or political 

subdivision authorized to hold real property. U.S. citizenship is 

evidenced by presenting a birth certificate, passport, or 

naturalization papers. In addition, the Act requires that bidders must 

be certified by Carson City Consolidated Municipality, Nevada, that 

they have agreed to comply with city zoning ordinances and any master 

plan for the area approved by the City.

    In order to determine the appraised value of the lands proposed for 

sale, certain assumptions may have been made concerning the attributes 

and limitations of the lands and potential effects of local regulations 

and policies on potential future land uses. Through publication of this 

notice, the BLM advises that these assumptions may not be endorsed or 

approved by units of local government. It is the buyer's responsibility 

to be aware of all applicable Federal, State, or local government laws, 

regulations, or policies that may affect the subject lands or its 

future uses. It is also the buyer's responsibility to be aware of 

existing or prospective uses of nearby properties. When conveyed out of 

Federal ownership, the lands will be subject to any applicable laws, 

regulations, and policies of the applicable local government for 

proposed future uses. It will be the responsibility of the purchaser to 

be aware through due diligence of those laws, regulations, and 

policies, and to seek any required local approvals for future uses. Any 

lands lacking access from a public road or highway will be conveyed as 

such, and future access acquisition will be the responsibility of the 

buyer.

    Only written comments will be considered properly filed. Before 

including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal 

identifying information in your comment--you should be aware that your 

entire comment, including your personal identifying information--may be 

made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your 

comment to withhold your personal identifying information from the 

public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

    Any adverse comments regarding the proposed sales will be reviewed 

by the BLM Nevada State Director, who may sustain, vacate, or modify 

this realty action. In the absence of any adverse comments, this realty 

action will become the final determination of the Department of the 

Interior.
