33 CFR 211.8 - Limitations on rights which may be granted.
(a) Advertising. It is the policy to grant leases to the highest responsible bidders after advertising, where competition is practicable. Advertising consists of the circularization of notices among former owners of the land, owners of adjacent lands, and others known to be interested and by the posting of notices in public places, and publication of notices in newspapers where such publication is deemed advisable. Exceptions have been made to this policy in favor of former owners in granting leases for agricultural and grazing purposes in reservoir areas.
(b) Consideration. Title 10 U.S.C. 2667 provides that notwithstanding section 321 of the act of June 30, 1932 (47 Stat 412; 40 U.S.C. 303b) or any other provision of law, any such lease may provide for the maintenance, protection, repair, or restoration by the lessee, of the property leased or of the entire unit or installation where a substantial part thereof is leased, as a part or all of the consideration for the lease of such property. The consideration will be adequate but may consist of money and/or maintenance, protection, repair, or restoration by the lessee, of the property leased.
(c) Consideration in easements and licenses. In order to fully protect the interests of the United States, the Secretary of the Army will not, without substantial compensation grant to non-government agencies, for the purpose of private profit, valuable rights in Government property. A fair charge will be made for such privileges, the amount to be determined by all the circumstances surrounding the case, including an estimate as to what private interest in the vicinity would charge for a similar privilege.
