Chapter 53 is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was acquired, the Secretary of Transportation may authorize the recipient to transfer the asset to a local governmental authority to be used for a public purpose with no further obligation to the Government. 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1). Determinations Frm 00134 Fmt 4703 Federal Interest in Acquiring Land or Facility This Notice implements the requirements of 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1)(D). Accordingly, FTA hereby provides notice of the availability of the Subject Property further described below. Any Federal agency interested in acquiring the Subject Property should promptly notify the FTA. If no Federal agency is interested in acquiring the Subject Property, FTA will make certain that the other requirements specified in 49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1)(A) through (C) are met before permitting the asset to be transferred. Additional Description of Land or Facility The Subject Property is recognized with the Parcel Identification Numbers 29–30–221–037 and 29–30–222–001. It is made up of a combined total of 0.81 acres and improved with a masonry structure that is approximately 17,000 square feet. The northern most section of the building is finished as office space, while the middle and southern sections are unfinished with exposed masonry walls. The middle section of the building has high ceilings and an overhead garage door. The southern section has a more typical ceiling height and access doors. The building is structurally sound, but in poor condition primarily because the roof needs to be repaired. The Subject Property is currently vacant. Public utilities include gas, electric, and water.

[FR Doc. 2020–03765 Filed 2–25–20; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE P The FTA Administrator may authorize a transfer for a public purpose other than mass transportation only if the FTA Administrator decides: (A) The asset will remain in public use for at least 5 years after the date the asset is transferred; (B) There is no purpose eligible for assistance under Chapter 53 of title 49, United States Code, for which the asset should be used; (C) The overall benefit of allowing the transfer is greater than the interest of the Government in liquidation and return of the financial interest of the Government PO 00000 in the asset, after considering fair market value and other factors; and (D) Through an appropriate screening or survey process, that there is no interest in acquiring the asset for Government use if the asset is a facility or land.

acquired by the City of Williston with funding assistance from the FAA 
AIP, ADAP and FAAP grant programs, ND State Aeronautics Commission and

will be in accordance with FAA's Policy and Procedures Concerning the 
Use of Airport Revenue, published in the Federal Register on February

property nor a determination of eligibility for grant-in-aid funding 
from the FAA.
    This notice announces that the FAA is considering the release of 
the subject airport property at the former Sloulin Field International 
Airport, ISN, Williston, ND from all federal land covenants, subject to
