For the sale of unused right-of-way notice of intention to sell the tract, parcel, or piece of land, or part thereof, must be sent, not less than ten days prior to the sale, by certified mail, by the agency in control of the land, to the last known address of the present owner of adjacent land from which the tract, parcel, piece of land, or part thereof, was originally bought or condemned for highway purposes, and if located in a city, to the mayor. The notice shall give an opportunity to the present owner of adjacent property to be heard and make offers for the tract, parcel, or piece of land to be sold, and if the offer is equal to or exceeds in amount any other offer received, it shall be given preference by the agency in control of the land. Neglect or failure for any reason, to comply with the notice, does not prevent the giving of a clear title to the purchaser of the tract, parcel, or piece of land.
