if the first bid is $3,000 and you want
to upset--you determine 10% of $1,000 and
5% of $2,000 (3000-1000) which is $100
(10% of 1,000) and $100 (5% of $2,000)
which means the increased amount must be
$200 and therefore the minimum upset bid
is $3,200). After you determine what the
upset bid will be, you must deposit a certified
check in the amount of 5% of the total
bid with the County Manager's Office.
