The City of Minot, North Dakota is requesting sealed bids for structures, to include homes, for sale that were purchased by the City within the footprint of the flood control project.

Each bid must include a five (5) percent bidders bond in a separate envelope attached to the bid envelope.  Acceptable will be cashier checks, bidder bond, or cash.  Any outstanding balance must be paid within fifteen (15) days of highest bid award.

Homes, garages, and commercial structures to be moved require a ten-thousand dollar ($10,000) performance bond posted with the City within ten (10) days of award of being the highest bidder. Sheds do not require a performance bond.

Land is not included as part of this auction.  Structures must be removed and relocated outside the 2011 flood inundation area at winning bidder’s expense.  Winning bidder must provide destination address, obtain any necessary moving permits and coordinate removal plan through City of Minot property maintenance within 30 days of bid opening.  Debris and/or damage created by structure removal shall be the winning bidder’s responsibility.  Structures must be removed prior to September 1st, or for safety concerns must remain in-place until after May 1, 2019 and then have 60 days to remove.   Exceptions require City approval.  Any desired winterizing must be performed by winning bidder at their own expense.  The City reserves the right to demolish structures left in place beyond the deadline.  Demolition of basement/slab is City responsibility.

All structures moved must follow jurisdictional ordinances and zoning codes in place at the permanent location of the structure.  Structures remaining in the City of Minot’s jurisdictional boundaries require a certificate of occupancy be issued within six months of bid.

The following is a list of structures available to the highest bidder.  Detached garages and sheds are considered separate items that require an independent bid from the home structure.  Home and commercial-type structures have a minimum bid based on availability and assessed tax value.  Sheds and garages have no minimum bid price.
