AS 18.55.255. Disposal of Surplus Property.

(a) In conjunction with the exercise of a power authorized by AS 18.55.100 - 18.55.290, the corporation may convey real or personal property that it determines is in excess of its needs. Except as provided in (b) and (c) of this section, the sale shall be by public auction or by sealed bids at a price not lower than the fair market value determined by an appraisal made within 180 days before the sale by a qualified appraiser. Public notice shall be given by publishing notice of the sale at least once a week for two consecutive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation within the area in which the property to be sold is located and by posting notice of sale in at least two public places in the area. In no event may the auction be held less than 30 days after the last day of publication. If acceptable bids are not received the corporation may sell the property at negotiated sale within six months after the date of the auction. A negotiated sale may not be made on an appraisal made more than nine months before the date of sale. The price at a negotiated sale may not be less than the appraised value.

(b) Real or personal property of the corporation may be conveyed under (a) of this section to a state or federal agency or political subdivision for less than the appraised value without competitive bidding, upon a determination by the board that the terms are fair and proper and in the best interests of the state. Before authorizing a conveyance under this section, the board of directors of the corporation shall consider both the nature of the agency's or political subdivision's public services or functions and the terms under which the property was acquired by the corporation.

(c) Property acquired or renovated to provide mental health community housing is not subject to the procedures of (a) or (b) of this section and may be conveyed for less than the fair market value to grantees selected by the Department of Health and Social Services upon terms and conditions consistent with grants administered by the Department of Health and Social Services under AS 47.30.520 - 47.30.620.

(d) This section does not apply to property that is covered by AS 18.55.320 or 18.55.540.
