If no application is filed for the purchase of the land within the sixty-day period by a bona fide occupant, and if no bids are received for the purchase thereof, on or before the date of the sale as advertised, then the secretary of state is authorized to lease the land for a period of from one to five years, upon as favorable terms as the secretary can obtain. At the expiration of such lease the secretary shall readvertise the land for sale in the manner provided in section 568.10. If no bids for the purchase of the land are received on the date of the second advertised sale, then the secretary of state shall submit the matter to the executive council, and they may either order the land reappraised in the manner provided in section 568.7, and then advertised and sold in the manner provided in section 568.10, or if they deem it advisable, they may authorize the secretary of state to sell the land for less than the appraised value. In such event the secretary of state shall readvertise the land for sale in the manner provided in section 568.10, and such advertisement shall also state that the land will be sold to the highest bidder without restrictions as to the appraised value.
