    Oklahoma Statute

    Oklahoma Statues, Title 69 (Road, Bridges, Ferries)
    Chapter 1 - Oklahoma Highway Code of 1968
    Article 10 - Equipment and Property
    Section 1001 - Sale, Exchange or Lease of Unneeded or Surplus Property

    Title 69, O.S. 2011 § 1001 - The Transportation Commission shall have authority to sell any lands, or interest therein, which may have been acquired for highway purposes, or facilities necessary and incident thereto, and any equipment, materials or supplies which in the opinion of the Commission are no longer serviceable, useful or necessary for the state highway system or the operation of the Department of Transportation. Such authority shall be subject at all times to the continuing right to the use of the lands by any entity operating a sewer, water or gas system, telephone or electrical services, and by public service corporations and rural electric and telephone cooperatives for the construction, reconstruction, maintenance, operation and repair of their facilities of service which may be upon the lands. However, any such land which was acquired by the Commission from a governmental subdivision as a gift, or for a nominal consideration, may be re-conveyed to the governmental subdivision by the Commission, upon repayment by the governmental subdivision to the Commission of any consideration for the original conveyance.

    Title 69, O.S. 2011 § 1001 (D) - Partial Taking Leaving an Abutting Remainder
    1. If the land originally comprised a partial taking leaving an abutting remainder, then prior to conducting such advertisement and solicitation of bids for the sale of any lands or interests therein, the Commission shall notify the person, firm or corporation which originally conveyed the property to the Commission or present successor to the original remainder that same has been declared surplus and is to be offered for sale. Such notice shall be sent by registered mail addressed to the last-known address of such person, firm or corporation, with return receipt requested. Such notice shall contain an offer to sell such property to such person, firm or corporation for an amount not greater than the amount for which the property was originally obtained by the Commission for a period of five (5) years from the original taking. Following the five-year period, the sale of such property may be offered at fair market value. The amount of the Commission's requested purchase price based on such appraisal shall be stated in the notice, and the person, firm or corporation receiving such notice and offer shall be informed therein that unless such person, firm or corporation notifies the Commission in writing within thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of the notice that the Commission's offer of sale is accepted by such person, firm or corporation, the Commission shall proceed to sell the property at public auction as provided for in this section. After the expiration of thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of the notice by the person, firm or corporation to whom it is addressed, if such person, firm or corporation has not notified the Commission in writing of the acceptance of the Commission's offer of sale, the Commission shall proceed to sell such property by public auction and no attempt to accept the Commission's offer by such person, firm or corporation after the expiration of such thirty (30) days shall be honored by the Commission. However, such person, firm or corporation may submit a bid at the public auction of the property in the same manner as any other qualified bidder.

    Title 69, O.S. 2011 § 1001 (D) – Total Taking Leaving No Abutting Remainder
    2. If the land to be disposed of originally comprised a total taking leaving no abutting remainder, then such shall be sold to the highest bidder, or as otherwise herein provided except that if the land to be disposed of originally comprised a total taking of less than one (1) acre leaving only one abutting property owner of record, then prior to conducting such advertisement and solicitation of bids for the sale of any such lands or interest therein, the Commission shall notify the sole abutting property owner of record to the taking that such has been declared surplus and is to be offered for sale. Such notice shall be sent by registered mail addressed to the last-known address of such person, firm or corporation, with return receipt requested. Such notice shall contain an offer to sell such property to such person, firm or corporation subject to the same conditions as set forth in paragraph 1 of this subsection.
