(A) The director of mental health and addiction services, the director of developmental disabilities, or the director of rehabilitation and correction may enter into contracts for the sale of land not needed by their departments and under their jurisdiction or supervision to metropolitan housing authorities for use by such an authority for a housing project or projects.  Such contract may contain such conditions and terms as are, in the discretion of the directors, in the best interests of the state and the welfare of the residents of the state.

(B) The director may, upon receipt of a request from a metropolitan housing authority, request the approval of the governor to sell and convey land not needed by the director's department and under the director's jurisdiction or supervision to an authority, subject to such terms and conditions consistent with the public interest and welfare of the residents of the state as the director considers necessary.  The governor, with the approval of the controlling board, may approve the request.  Such property shall be appraised at its fair market value before it is conveyed.  The director of administrative services shall cause it to be appraised by three disinterested persons and shall determine the fee which each appraiser shall receive, not to exceed fifty dollars.  All appraisal fees shall be paid by the authority which shall deposit with the director one hundred fifty dollars before the appraisal is made.  If the deposit exceeds the appraisal fee, the balance shall be returned to the authority.  The appraisal value, when approved by the director, is the purchase price.  If the purchase price is not paid within ninety days after notice to the authority of the approved appraisal value, the director shall withdraw approval of the appraisal value and no deed shall be delivered to the authority without the written approval of the director of the purchase price.  If the purchase price is paid within ninety days, a deed shall be prepared and recorded pursuant to section 5301.13 of the Revised Code.

(C) Moneys received from sales of land to a metropolitan housing authority shall be placed in the state treasury in special funds, to be used for such purposes of the department of mental health and addiction services, the department of developmental disabilities, or the department of rehabilitation and correction as is appropriate.
