18A:20-7. Sale at fixed minimum prices; rejection of bids
a. In the case of public sales the board may by resolution fix a minimum price with or without the reservation of the right, upon the completion of said public sale, to accept or reject the highest bid made thereat, a statement whereof shall be included in the advertisement of sale of the lands and public notice thereof shall be given at the time of sale, or it may by resolution provide without fixing a minimum price, that upon the completion of the public sale, the highest bid made thereat shall be subject to acceptance or rejection by the board, but the acceptance or rejection thereof shall be made not later than the second regular meeting of the board following the sale, and, if the board shall fail or refuse to accept or reject any such highest bid, as aforesaid, the said bill shall be deemed to have been rejected.
b. If no bid is received or if the bids which are received are rejected by the board, the board may enter into negotiations with any interested party or parties for the sale or other disposal of the property. The acceptance or rejection of the price arrived at through negotiations shall be by recorded roll call majority vote of the full membership of the board at a regularly scheduled meeting.
The board may reject any bid if it determines it to be in the public interest to do so, but shall afford the bidder a hearing upon his request before entering into negotiations as provided in this subsection.
